  • Paul Slavens

    yo yo yo
    I am here and ready to hear what you got to lay on me.

  • Wes Cantrell

    Liking the electronica. Strobe by Deadmau5 would be amazing on such a wonderful evening.

  • YES! One of my favorite Steely Dan tracks. I once heard a pretty good cover of it at my local grocery store, looked it up online and turns out it’s by Ivy.

    One song that I’ve had stuck in my head for a while now is “All You Need is Hate” by The Delgados.
    Buy it here:

  • Russell

    Thanks also for the Herb Alpert. It reminds me of Sunday afternoons in the mid-60s

  • Paul Slavens

    Russel, havent played that one in a long time, thanx

  • Vie

    Anything by Ben Folds.

  • Hi Paul- Miguel and Sarah here from Mariachi Quetzal listening on the road driving back from a gag. Oops I mean gig.

    How about Linda Ronstadt whether it’s in the style of mariachi or anything else she was known for. You’re cool.

  • Amanda

    Thanks for playing The Knife. Refreshing to hear something that reminds me of the original KXT.

  • Rebecca & Fran├žois

    Hiya, Paul!

    How about ‘Popcorn’ by Hot Butter and a bit of Isabelle Adjani (yes, she sings!) while you’re at it?

    Many thanks!
    Rebecca & Fran├žois

  • Russell

    Brilliant cover of S&G’s ’59th Street Bridge’ groovy tune. Had not heard it that way before. Coo’.

  • Russell

    spillin’ it now … thanks once again for the smile, Paul

  • Paul

    thx, mucho mas for the Herb Alpert … “sunshine superman” by donovan just popped into my head as a contender for grooviness.

  • Russell

    all I can say for mssr. leitch’s ‘sunshine superman’ for a groovinator status is: “Brilliant!”

  • Kelliblue

    Hey Paul – how about some MORPHINE? Man, I miss Mark Sandman…

  • listener mark

    Evening Paul, That last track reminded me a lot of Selected Ambient Works 85-92 by Aphex Twin (I think they both owe a lot to Eno.) Here is a link to the first track Xtal:

  • Paul Slavens

    Thanks for all the suggestions folks. I sure do appreciate the company and the input.

  • James

    Dying to know the song you played about 9:45ish sounded like the name was Oh what a beautiful mess, the lady’s voice sounded like Fionna Apple (kinda). All I can find is a Jason Mraz, perhaps it was a cover?

  • Russell

    superb show as always, Paul. many thanks.

  • peregrine

    Thanks for playing such great music. Possible suggestion for future sessions:

    Group-Hothouse Flowers; Album-Songs From The Rain; Songs-This Is It (Your Soul) and/or An Emotional Time/Songs From The Rain. Goes back to 1995, but it’s beautiful music.

    Thanks for what you do. I love your show.

  • James

    Nevermind…duh, you listed her name at the top of your page. Grace Askew. Love it!

  • peregrine

    Oh, thought of something funny and unusual – ‘Underwater Rhymes’ by Digital Underground. Don’t know if it’d fit the playlist, but it’s a suggestion. Thanks!
