    Why dont you do your duty, dood !!
    tune in, support and suggest !

  • Austin

    is paul there?

  • Anne Bothwell

    Hey fans of Paul: Tonight’s the night. KXT is holding its summer membership campaign. You can show your support for this show when you go to and make a contribution. Bonus: you’ll also be entered in a fabulous drawing for tix to Austin City Limits AND a hotel getaway weekend.

  • Austin

    Is illegal to record the radio and put the songs on an iPod?
    Not selling the music or anything just having it to play over and over again?

  • Ron Bulla

    Greetings. Some oldies to consider: “The Season Of The Witch” by Donovan. “Please Please Please” by James Brown & The Famous Flames. “Black Licorice” by Grand Funk Railroad. How apropos the lyrics of “Black Licorice” are with the tragedy in the Gulf. Peace.

  • Nicole-Michele

    How about some Black Crowes? Maybe Soul Singing or Wiser Times?

  • Paul Slavens

    ok, those are some fine ideas
    I will dig them up

  • Rebecca

    Oooooh. Thank you for playing Dead Can Dance!

    Familiar with the group In the Nursery? Think they might be Australian. Bally Sagoo or Gotan Project would be cool as well.

    Thanks as always!

  • Pamitha Scissom

    Some recent finds for me are the Hayes Carll band, Richard Johnston, Ruth Moody, and Kate Nash while I was in Santa Fe this week. Play any for me Paul? C’mon, you love the Pam…

  • Ron Bulla

    I recently listened to the impressive new DEVO cd. In particular, “What We Do” is the best and catchiest dance track that I’ve heard in a long time. Great show, Paul.

    Hey Mariah,
    Don’t know if Paul will get back to you tonight since it’s so close to the end of the show. But just wanna say it’s GREAT to hear from Addison. Earlier this week, when I was on the air for KXT, we hadn’t heard from there yet, and it’s super cool to hear we’ve got your support and Addison’ll be on the Summer Tour T-shirt. Thank you!!

  • Hi Paul

    Can you see if you can find some Bob Wills and play him on your show? Thanks
