Best to stay inside and pile some logs on the fire and listen to some groovy music for a bit.

  • Paul Slavens

    Hey there,

    P-Slave on deck waiting to hear from you.

  • Kelly

    Can you play some Squirrel Nut Zippers or MORE Deer Hoof?

  • Play some of the British experimental band the Flying Lizards. Thanks.

  • joseba

    Paul, Diggin’ the tunes…great mix.

    Love the Coltrane, Gillespie…
    Been listening to some Joni Mitchell the last couple of days
    something newish by her would be cool.

    How bout some Louis Jordan, Say “Jack Your Dead” maybe.

  • Hey paul, The tunes tonight are a perfect mix for a long night of painting! Some “Sun Ra” would realy put me over the edge… Please play some SUN RA……

  • Lula

    Thaks for the help earlier, J. Could you play some of this? It’s a band called Pez, from Argentina, here’s the link. Look for “Toda la maniana” from the album “Hoy” (the one with the butterfly on it)
    Thanks again!

  • Paul Slavens

    I am saying yes to all of this.

  • listener mark

    Julie London..Hubba hubba.

  • Paul Slavens

    You’re gonna have to wait for that Sun Ra.
    I dont have any cued up tonite
    but I will get some on next Sunday.

  • Kelliblue

    Hey Paul, (really miss Ten Hands, BTW) how about some Deborah Vial? I think she’s a local artist. Heard her years ago, she’s got a great gospelly/haunting voice. Haven’t heard her in years, but sure would love to. Really diggin your show, thanks for everything you’re playing!

  • John McRaney

    “Farm Out!!!!” Wonderful show. Am 60 year old Woodstock refugee as I have been called. How about Steppenwolf, Renegade. John

  • Melissa

    I’m actually up painting as well and would love to here some Jeff Buckley!

  • Since you played Julie London, now you should play her husband Bobby Troup.

  • Andrew

    If you like mellow 60’s tunes with great vocals, try ANDY WILLIAMS “You Don’t Know What Love Is” from his album “Lonely Street”. Andy also does probably the best versions of “The Quest (The Impossible Dream)”. Thanks for all the Sunday entertainment.

  • Ok – no SUN RA tonight – I will tune in next week for it….
    How about NICK CAVE “red right hand” that song will definatly warm you up on a cold night like tonight!!!!!!

  • Paul Slavens

    Great suggestions tonite y’all.
    Make sure to tune in next week to hear some of thes
    if I can find then.
    Keep ’em coming.

  • Regan

    Now that you’ve played the Tom Jones, would you play John Lee Hooker. Alberta maybe.

    Jim White?

  • Paul Slavens

    Just a reminder that I put all the music together during the week so I can’t play your suggestions the night I get them. Sorry.

  • Regan

    Also, have you heard the This American Life where the artists made two songs based on surveys of what people love and hate in a song. Would you play the song made with everything people hate? It’s good.

  • Lula

    Check out this other band, Soez, and play “La guerra de los arboles”.

  • SurlyZ

    I would love to hear any Doug Sahm solo or Sir Douglas Quintet (besides “She’s About a Mover” which is the only song that normally gets play anywhere).

  • paul

    Marty Stuart doing Porter Wagoner’s Grave, and Susannah McCorkle’s wonderful version of Waters of March in the same hour. Quite a mix, but that’s why I listen. Suggestions: Leon Russell, Joni Mitchell, Joe Jackson, or perhaps some Tania Maria, great Brazilian funk…check out an early LP Made in New York if you aren’t familiar. Always a Sunday evening pleasure, J. Paul.

    in Ruidoso

  • Paul Slavens

    Thanks everybody.
    Tune in next week.
    Cheers !!!

  • Hey Paul, I would love if you could play the lead single, “Set Me Free” from my Dallas/Denton local band, The Red 100’s upcoming EP, “Live Off The Floor”.
