    mmm, mud bugs. Say, aren’t lobsters nothing more than large sea-bugs?

  • Got lots of Booker T. Washington student and former student music for you. Sent an e-mail to you at the station address. The student album comes out this Tuesday. The station has one copy and you will get your own copy. Where would you like the albums delivered?
    Ben would like to hear some Snarky Puppy.

  • Please check out these three new originals by local musician Matt Barron. I’m hooked on KXT 24/7 and would love to hear these mixed in to the wonderfully random playlists! I have the mp3’s but no way to play them… so hit me if you’d like the mp3’s. LOL

    Hey Paul! Here’s a song I have never heard on radio before. It’s Tom Waits’ Way Down in The Hole sung by The Five Blind Boys From Alabama. It was used as the theme to David Simon’s HBO series The Wire.

    Nneka – Heartbeat

    …Been listening to the monthly offering on David Byrne radio…it’s all Japanese this month…anyway he’s playing a number of tunes by a guy named Ichi…this one cracks me up everytime I hear it アヒルと水兵 (Duck & Sailorman) Ichi.

    Check it out!

  • Chip

    Paul, I recently came across TV Girl and found them interesting. Theit song “If You Want It (You Got It)” is what got me interested.

    They seem to only have a free EP out so far, so may not fit your play criteria, but worth a listen.


  • Paul Slavens

    those are some good interesting suggestions, I will check em out

  • Jeff

    Hey Paul, It’d be awesome if you played The Funeral by Band of Horses. Its one of my favorite songs.
