  • Paul Slavens

    I am here and ready to hear some cool ideas for music on this hot night.

  • Joe Henley

    Jim Carroll Band are you kidding me. Haven’t heard him on the radio in years. I use to listen to him when I was in college. I would like to hear NRBQ-That’s Alright from Ridin in my car. I enjoy the shows.

  • ryan

    let’s here some Panda Bear

  • Paul Slavens

    I am not kidding you.
    I will check out that tune, thanks

  • Gregor

    Paul, dug that local music track, but what’s the singer’s name again? Trying to find it on Bandcamp.

  • Hi Paul

    Can you play some Johnny Cash tonight? “Ballad Of A Teenage Queen”? Thanks Paul

  • Paul Slavens

    Joey Kendall- was here. Good stuff.
    Can’t play that song tonite, because I pre-pick all the music, but I will rock it for you next week. danke

  • Paul Slavens

    @ryan-panda bear , check

  • Joe Henley

    maybe Helen Forest sang the song you played w/Bing Crosby?

  • Paul Slavens

    I believe it was Dick Haymes.

  • Kikki

    Paul, what artist was that you played at around 8:01pm? Female singer

  • Paul Slavens

    @Kikki, it was probably Goldfrapp. It was the first song of the set, and it was followed by Dead Can Dance which had a female vocal, but no lyrics.

  • Gregor

    I think Thao is pronounced “TOW” (rhymes with POW). Her last name is Nguyen. Although I believe Mirah sang the lead on that track. I don’t know anything about Mirah, but I highly recommend Thao’s two albums with her usual band, the Get Down Stay Down: “Know Better Learn Faster” and “We Brave Bee Stings And All.”

    Loved the Monkees track. Look for their song “Tapioca Tundra” if you’ve never heard it. Had the 45 when I was a kid and wore it out.

  • Joe Henley

    Paul, could you play Vasoline Machine #2 by the Nighthawks from Side Pocket Shot? I know it will hopefully be on a future show. I also loved the Monkees tune you played.

  • Paul Slavens

    I will check it out for next time for sure. Thanks
    people for loving the Monkees, yes!

  • Lis Eno

    Great show so far, thank you!

  • Regan

    Mr. Wolf and Mama Bear Robert Earl Keen

  • Khaki

    just for the record, re: the mickey dolenz track. the word ‘moog,’ as in synthesizer, is pronounced with a long ‘o’ sound. it rhymes with the word ‘vogue.’ i almost never hear it pronounced correctly

    from dr. robert moog himself, via wikipedia, the following:


    The surname Moog is one of the most divergently pronounced names in popular culture. The following interview excerpt reveals Robert Moog’s preferred pronunciation:

    — Reviewer: First off: Does your name rhyme with “vogue” or is like a cow’s “moo” plus a g at the end?
    — Dr. Robert Moog: It rhymes with “vogue.” That is the usual German pronunciation.[2] My father’s grandfather came from Marburg, Germany. I like the way that pronunciation sounds better than the way the cow’s “moo-g” sounds.[3]

    In a deleted scene from the DVD version of the documentary Moog, Moog describes the three pronunciations of the name Moog: the original Dutch /moːx/, which he believes would be too demanding of English speakers; the preferred Anglo-German pronunciation, /moʊɡ/; and a more anglicized pronunciation, /muːɡ/. Moog reveals that some of his family members prefer the anglicized pronunciation, while others, including himself (and his wife) prefer the Anglo-German pronunciation.



  • Paul Slavens

    I am from Texas. Mooooooooooog. 🙂

  • Thom

    Paul, Do you post the songs, in order, that you play on your show each week?

    Future suggestion
    ‘These Words’ by New Mode Army from CD: ‘The Love of Hopeless Causes’.
    ‘Sinnerman’ by Nina Simone

  • Gregor

    From Tennessee Ernie Ford to Badfinger? Awesome show.

  • Ray

    @Joe – the Nighthawks is an excellent request. Crap, I got busy at work and missed Dead can Dance 🙁

  • Paul Slavens

    The playlist generally shows up at the top of the blog after the show is over (licensing requirements). Also, I try to get the playlist posted at KXT.org , just go to my page on KXT. It usually takes me a day or so to get em posted there, but they usually show up at the top of the blog right away afterwards.

  • Paul Slavens

    Goodnight and thanks for the company and suggestions, see you next week !!!!
