  • Paul Slavens

    Hey there,
    this is where you can leave your polite comments and groovy music suggestions.

  • Ron Bulla

    Carolyn Wonderland “Unbroken”

    Nick Brumley “Coppervine Ln.” I wish I had a link for this artist. He is out of Marshal, Tx. I saw him play in a coffee shop in Denton a couple of years ago. He has a self titled cd out.

    Placebo w/David Bowie “Without You I’m Nothing”

  • Kelly Higgins

    I been listening to Leon Russell a lot. Stranger in a Strange Land, Rainbow in Your Eyes, Wild Horses, Delta Lady, Magic Mirror are all good. Pretty good version of Masquerade, too. When he covers a song, it just seems definitive. Play some Leon next week maybe.

  • Stephen Douglas

    Hey Paul!

    It’s requests from Richard and the buddies again!

    Illuminate by Imperial Drag (CD is Imperial Drag)
    Jungle by E.L.O. (CD is Out of the Blue)
    Have You Heard? Pt. 2 (Live Version) by Moody Blues (CD is Moody Blues – Caught Live + 5)

    Also, a few weeks ago, I got the request wrong. It should have been:

    Odessey not Ocyssey and the CD it was from was “Music From the Elder”

    Thanks Paul!

  • Paul Slavens

    Leon Russell is all good in my book
    thanks for the tips Ron

  • Anne Bothwell

    Whoo! Feelin’ phenomenal. On behalf of all of us: Thanks Paul!

  • Stephen Douglas

    Ok, Paul,

    New letter, new request:

    When you Wish Upon a Star by Gene Simmons (CD is Gene Simmons).

    Apparently, Gene’s voice cracked while singing it and his producer thought it fit and would not let Gene re-take it.

    Let me know if you can play any of this!


  • Gris Ramierez

    Hey Paul,
    Denton has Sarah Jaffe and L.A. has Rachael Cantu. I highly recommend you give her music a listen to. Might I suggest introducing your listeners to her song Devil’s Thunder. I really enjoy tuning in every Sunday.

    PS Could you also possibly include Jenny Lewis or Neko Case to your playlist.

  • Mike in Colorado

    Great tunes tonight, keep playing the music with tone and mellow, less mechanical microwave noises.

  • Gris Ramirez

    Hey Paul,
    Denton has Sarah Jaffe and L.A. has Rachael Cantu. Might I suggest you introduce her music to your listeners. I recommend beginning with Devil’s Thunder. Here is her myspace link.


    PS I’d like to see if Jenny Lewis and Neko Case could also be added to your playlist too.

  • Cliff

    Love the Bobby McFerrin! And that horn thing just before was awesome. I don’t have any brilliant suggestions tonight; maybe another week.

  • Paul Slavens

  • Ron Bulla
