    Thanks Paul, more Nina Simone!

  • Julie Jones

    How about a little Space Opera over the live wires?

  • James Lovell

    How about some older Talking Heads from Fear Of Music? I love “Memories Can’t Wait” and “I Zimbra.”

  • Julie Jones

    Try “I’m Gonna Live Until I Die,” great blues from the early 70’s.

  • Lawrence Sutherland

    Hey, Paul~

    Magazine has a new one out! As a fan of both Howard Devoto and Barry Adamson, I’d love to hear whatever you’d wish to provide 🙂

  • James Lovell

    Well…right after I requested old Talking Heads you played some. So how about Curtis Mayfield’s “Kung Fu” or something like that?

    This is from a soundtrack to a video game Paul, but it is available for sale.

    Paul, has anyone turned you on to the Sideshow Tragedy yet? Fantastic duo from Austin… bayou-sy blues based Texas rock with a punk edge. Check out The Bet from their latest EP, Gasoline.
