    I am here and ready for your transmissions.
    suggest me some cool music.

  • Tom Ottinger

    Have you ever play anything by pianist Nik Bartsch? His ensemble is “Nik Bartsch’s Ronin”. Their album “Holon” is very interesting. Minimal, evolving. I purchased this from Amazon.

    Have enjoyed your show for several years. Hope that KXT will include more diverse music programming (such as your show) as it evolves. KXT’s current programming direction is too limited in my opinion.

    Keep up the good work.

  • Russ

    Wow, Ginny Mac last week (told you she was good), Edith Piaf this week, who knows – maybe Brandi Carlile’s “Story” next week.

  • Kaila

    Oh, and some Wilco?

  • miguelito

    Talk Talk – New Grass (off the Laughing Stock album)

  • Randy Riddile

    My ‘must hear’ nomination: Tommy Emmanuel’s guitar instrumental cover of ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ on his CD ‘Endless Road.’ Beyond his astonishing chops (Chet Atkins: ‘greatest player on the planet,’ Clapton: ‘Best guitarist I ever heard’), Tommy E’s playing is so emotional and expressive. Maybe because he doesn’t have to think about technique, he is free to focus totally on the music. Whatever, his ‘Over the Rainbow’ exemplifies his emotional style. I have heard him play this live many times, for both small and large (Bass Hall) groups, and he has never failed to bring many (me included, every time) to tears at the sheer beauty of it.

  • lola

    how about some ray lamontagne… i’m in love with his voice

  • paul slavens

  • lola

  • Paul, Play some of the Dallas musicians on the first world list -best of the net music list.

  • Ron Bulla

    Thanks for the Beatles song. I request “Bless You” by John Lennon.

    Also, I request “Dindi” by Frank Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim.


  • Lauren

    “Living Without You” –Nilsson (not “Without You” but the other one)

    After hearing that song, I wondered if anyone ever needed to record a break-up song again. Man.

  • paul slavens
