    Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg.

  • Mike W

    Hey P–you could turn this into “Name That Tune”

    second song is Satie, no idea who the artist is though
    very cool rendition

  • Linda

    Wonderful to hear some Ten Hands on KXT earlier this evening.
    Love your show.

  • PeterJ

    No doubt MW. I would have to MC though, not sure I have the chops to keep up.

  • Ian

    Hey Paul,

    Could I request a “Futureheads” song maybe “Meantime” or “Heartbeat Song”

    Thanx Buddy & Keep up the good work!

  • Paul Slavens

    wow, I had no idea that 10 hands got played
    what did they play?
    Thanks to the lovely Gini for saving my butt, I had luckily mailed her my playlist !
    so much for perfection.

  • PeterJ

    This is my re-discovery of the week. Was listening to Durutti Column and remembered about these guys. Dif Juz. I think it’s pronounced diff-use; never heard anyone else say their name 🙂

    Check it out:

  • tom

    Passing thru town. How about some ray condo. Thks

  • Paul Slavens

    played some Durutti Column a few months ago, so I could surely dig some more up

  • Linda

    I Was Confused…which- curiously- happened to match my frame of mind. Anyway, nice to hear it!

  • tom

    Like that plant is covering los lobos. Great song

  • Sleigh Bells – Infinity Guitars or A/B Machines…

  • Paul Slavens

    No Ray Condo tonite.
    afraid I cant play things on the fly, I put the show together during the week. I could try and get some on next week though.

  • tom

    Sounds good. I’ll try to tune in via the internet. cheers

  • Linda

    How about some Secret Machines? All At Once; Alone, Jealous and Stoned; Lightning Blues Eyes…
    Thanks for the music.

  • Paul Slavens

    thanks Linda
    heard of em, but havent heard em

  • tom

    Re; the agressive european music comment, you might like a band called luminescent orchestrii. Based in NYC, but play music with a romanian gypsy influence.

  • Paul Slavens

    thanks for tuning in and writing yall
    keep em coming during the week

  • anne

    Tiny Tim!! Great show tonight, but this is the kicker.

  • Mark
