    I am here and you should not hesitate to communicate with me now.

  • James Lovell

    Kila – Double Knuckle Shuffle from Tog E Go Bog E

  • paul slavens

    I have the shows archived (sans my voice) for personal use. But the shows are unfortunately not available for the masses after the fact.
    I have not gone out of my way to listen to Coldplay. Should I?

  • paul slavens

    transmitter trouble tonite, the stream is good on though.

  • Shalyn

    Oh. So the xmitter is down. Now I feel bad for slapping the radio.

    You ever play any Kashmere Stage Band? I like the story as much as the music: high school band from Houston in the ’70s that recorded some amazing funk. There’s a documentary “Thundersoul”….which I’ve not seen.

    Love the show, even despite the outages.

  • God bless Joe Jackson!!

  • Wayne Green

    How about playing the DiGiallornardo sisters? They have a song about leaving a Guy named Wayne.

  • paul slavens

    thanks Wayne old buddy, I will check it out
    I have played some Kashmere , but will dig it out again for you

  • I have the Mike’s Murder soundtrack lp. I don’t have a way to record it. Would you want to borrow it for listening purposes and then I could get it back? It is a favorite album when albums are played. Are there any good open mics for piano players in Denton?

  • Ray

    I love Blind Blake and Piedmont style blues. Hot Tuna does a lot of that style. Check out their first album just called Hot Tuna or Burgers.

  • paul slavens

    Thanks for jumping on the blog yall
    have a great week , see you back here next sunday, you hear?

  • So this is where I leave a suggestion for someone I’d like to hear played on your show, right? Sorry if I’m wrong…. the link I just gave you is to a friend of mine’s music page. Her name is Joy Valencia, and she lives in LA. Her music is very unique, and if you listen I think you’ll agree. You can get in touch with her and everything through that link I gave you, and… yeah… hope you like her! 🙂
