    Hey P, what happened to Sound Opinions? It was a great lead-in to your show.

  • Paul,

    Great show so far. Just wanted to ask if maybe you could play some Beirut? It’s one of mine and my wife’s favorites – thanks!


    PS – We’ve been proud sustaining members of KXT for a few months now – very much worth it!

  • paul slavens

    It was a great lead in wasn’t it.
    I liked that show too.

  • paul slavens

    Jason, thanks so much for your support
    I will get that Beirut on next week for you, bud.

  • Any chance of getting something local played?

  • I appreciate it, Paul!

  • paul slavens

    I do my best to play a heatlthy selection of local stuff.
    make sure to send a couple copies to the station and put

    on one of the copies.

  • We demand Paul Slavens plays us some Paul Slavens, Alphabet Girls ruled.

    Thanks Jaime, maybe someday, but I feel a bit weird playing my own music.

    Thank you for the great programming.

  • paul slavens

    Thanks as usual to you, Ron.

  • Andrew Mills

    Paul, it would be awesome if you could play some seryn, they’re a local band that’s on KXT sometimes, also, you played an industrial/techno-ish song on August 22 at around 8:40, I never could find it in your playlist and I really liked the song. Thanks for the great show.

  • paul slavens

    thanks for tuning in and writing
    see you next week

  • paul slavens

    Im guessing that August 22 at 8:40 was

    Glass Candy -Etheric Device -Beat Box

    I dont have that Seryn disc yet. I will try to get a copy.
