  • Paul Slavens

    ok, I am here please communicate with me!

  • Kelliblue

    hey Paul how about some Sour Soul from Mexico City? Kinda fun and kitschy…and they’re coming to town apparently. 🙂

  • Juan

    Liking the music I’m hearing. If it wasn’t for this show, I don’t know how I would of discovered M83. A song that I recommend is the Bonnie And Clyde by Serge Gainsbourg & Brigitte Bardot. This is the most famous song between this couple here.

  • Paul Slavens

    far out
    I will check em out

  • Jonathan bevill

    Hey Paul! Haven’t heard The Cramps on the radio in… Well never! Could you play I was a teenage werewolf? That would be so much fun! Thanks, Jonathan

  • TomH

    Some I’m sure you are familiar with. But anyway: Sharkey’s Night (laurie anderson), As Tears Go By (stones), So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright (S&G), Citizens of the World (Didjiworks), Blues Man (Steven Stills), The Waters of March (Susannah McCorkle), Spinal Meningitis (Got Me Down) (Ween). Polanski will wait.

  • paul slavens

    I will look into all those for next week Tom.
    I have played most of that, but there are a few new things. a nice mix !
    I usually play that cramps song on Halloween, but for you, I will throw it in

  • Napoleon xiv – They’re Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!

  • paul slavens

    Wow, that’s the second halloween suggestion tonite. Maybe we are at calendar opposition to halloween or something.

  • Lois

    OK-what was the French artist – I couldn’t interpret fast enough – Blah, Blah Adieu something. Loved it and the one by Camille. Thanks.

  • paul slavens

    Francoise Hardy-Comment te dire adieu

  • TJ

    Wow! Haven’t heard Steel Pole Bathtub in a long time. I saw them open for Faith No More in 95 at the Bomb Factory.

  • Jonny

    Hey Paul I just found a local band from Denton on YouTube called Little Black Hymnal. They haven’t had too many hits so I think they’re pretty up-and-coming, but their song Something Wicked is pretty good. Very cool relation to the Bradbury novel. Just a new suggestion.

  • paul slavens

    Wow, I had never heard of Steel Tub before this week.

    I will check out Little Black Hymnal. Do they have a CD?

  • Jonny

    I’m not sure. they do have an email though. [email protected]
    They are awesome! Like if bob Dylan and glen Danzig had a baby haha!

  • regan

    Speaking of local music, Robert Gomez – “Closer Still”

  • Thanks for including LITE this week. I’m on a roll with crazy Japanese instrumental stuff right now, so considering your keyboard inclinations, I thought you might also dig Mouse on the Keys.

    Check ’em out and think about it….

  • TomH

    I didn’t know you were this open minded (yeah I did). More old time stupidity – Fats Waller’s ‘Your Feets too big’.

  • paul slavens

    this is all good

  • Cory

    Hey Paul, how about “let em in” by mccartney?

  • Cory

    Also, maybe some Saul Williams!

  • paul slavens

    yes and yes

  • TomH

    Can’t get this quality of music in AR, there’s a local radio station out of Rich Mountain Community College, Mena AR. They can’t afford ASCAP/BMI fees to broadcast on the internet. They are are a great radio station hampered by $. I know you can identify.

  • Ed in Arlington

    Lots of interesting sounds tonight; I think I liked the last set the most.

  • Ed in Arlington

    And (just ’cause we hain’t heard from that guy in a while), “How about playing some post-bands music?”.
