    Hey Paul!

    Long time no hear. This is Richard from Seagoville’s friend. I have some fresh requests from Ricardo.

    Can you play “Ocyssey” by KISS from the “Music for the Elder” CD?

    Thanks and keep spinning!


  • Paul Slavens

    wow, a KISS request right off the bat
    believe it or not I am not familiar with this piece
    I will chek it and spin it if possible
    nice to hear from you again

  • Mike

    thanks for the AC play from the request last week. when you get a chance sometime, check out the laughing stock album by talk talk. not too many radio friendly songs but worth a listen; it’s different.

  • Regan

    The Ink Spots, or King Missile, or Roy Orbison, or something by Paul Slavens.

  • Byron

    This week I discovered a a couple of forgotten classic albums by The Pretty Things, “Parachute” and “SF Sorrow”. I think I like Parachute best, it was Rolling Stone’s album of the year in 1970. Heard of those?
