  • Cindy Chaffin

    This Beatles track is…is….fan-freakin-tastic! Nuthin’ but love for Slavens…

  • Hey ho music lovers
    knock knock
    are you there
    lets hear some suggestions

  • Cindy Chaffin

    Randy Newman always turns my frown upside down….

  • Regan

    Liked the Waits
    Charles Mingus Wednesday Night Prayer meeting
    Is everybody watching Oscars?

  • it feels like it did on superbowl night
    I go up against all the big TV events.
    nice to have you along though

  • A while back, a friend of mine suggested I listen to one of his friend’s new albums. It turned out to be one of my favorites of 2009. Apparently his buddy was is the drummer for a different band, but his solo album is done almost exclusively with the human body.
    The album is called Mantis Preying by the Alvin Band. You can stream/buy the whole thing from this page:

  • Mike W

    a couple of things I’ve been listening to this week that would sound cool on your show:

    Langley Schools Music Project-Innocence and Despair

    Pavement-Brighten the Corners

    • “Stereo”, “Shady Lane” and “Blue Hawaiian” are my favorites from Brighten the Corners. Definitely my favorite Pavement album.

  • MLB

    Love the live Pride…any chance of some Chris Whitley??? Love the show!

  • I’m sure you’ve heard of Jim O’Rourke (since he gets involved in everything). I was wondering if you’d play something from one of his solo albums or something from his project with Jeff Tweedy, Loose Fur.

  • I love these suggestions cuz I am not familiar with any of it
    thanks so much

  • Cindy Chaffin

    I have a huge request…The Paul Slavens Show needs to run a few times during the week, too. LIke drive times and a early riser show….Love it!

    • well gee
      that would be nice.
      but I dont go to bed until 2 am
      so no early mornings for me
      unless they just replay my sunday night show
      I would be way down with that
      but I am far from being the decision maker around here

  • I’m glad you like and play so many of my suggestions. 😀

    I was looking around your texclectic website the other night, and was inspired when I downloaded your song “Daisy”; would you be offended if I were to sample and re-mix it into something completely different? I like making weird things with Fruity Loops. Have you ever looked at my music page that I link to on here?

    • I actually have a record coming out soon that has a much better version of that song. but have at it.
      just send the money to me.
      havent looked on yer site yet.
      I do that stuff too, ableton, cubase etc.

    • Haha, you say “send the money to me” as if there were a way for me to make money off it. If I ever do you’ll be the first to know, lol.

  • Cindy Chaffin

    Replay of your genius set lists could potentially prevent rush hour problems… and most certainly prevent road rage! Bring it!

  • Regan

    John S. Hall and Kramer, “Water” from the album Real Men

  • Mike Ex Pat

    I moved to Colorado and KERA is too far away for good reception.

    Tonight I get on the internets’ and find you’ve moved to a new PR music channel. Great to hear/stream your show again, my Sunday routine is complete.

    How about some Ken Nordine, or some of that voice-over-mellow I grew to appreciate, some poem’esk beatnik if you please.

    BTW: Colorado PR is the worst, I miss the Texas lineup!

    • nice to have you back on the line
      I will take your suggestions under careful consideration

  • thats about it for tonite
    thanks for sharing a nice sunday night
    see you next week
    and keep the suggestions coming

  • Azazel D

    I just realized I never hit submit before my laptop battery died while sitting at a friend’s apartment patio, wi-jacking some internet. Anyway, it is now too late for the show from a few hours ago, but this is a cool cover:
    The band is local and actually much of their stuff is pretty cool.. retro a-la Gary Numan & Tubeway Army, if you’re into that kind of stuff.

  • Roy Verges

    Hey Paul, got some ideas for tunes to play (band – album)

    Nektar – Down to Earth (album)
    Bow St. Runners (eponymous)
    Griddle – Klimty Favela
    Love – Da Capo

    I’m lovin’ your show. You have no idea the drudgery your show relieves on a Sunday night, when I’m working in the kitchen.
