    cmon cmon cmon
    lets have some groovy music suggestions.

  • Mike W

    Hey P, been listening a lot to Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou, an Afrobeat group from Benin. Great stuff, as is everything on the Analog Africa label.

  • jordan

    Lets hear some playtime rabbit! thanks, Paul!

  • Ray Worth

    John Mayall – Thoughts About Roxanne. Unfortunately at just over 8 minutes it may be to long.

    • Paul Slavens

      yep, I have a pretty hard cutoff at 6 minutes, and I dont go that long unless its a really heavy track
      but thanks, got any other cuts that you would want to hear?

  • Thom

    Hey Paul,
    How about some Gogol Bordello?

  • Ray Worth

    Anything by John Mayall works for me – also from the same era something from Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac. They were totally different than the wimpy pop band they eventually morphed into.

  • Thom
  • Ray Worth

    The Asylum Street Spankers do a great version of Dance This Mess Around.

  • James Lovell

    How about “Stonehenge” by Spinal Tap? Next week’s show will be only two days after Nigel Tufnel day. Dude, you must…errr or please!

  • Jessica Orosco

    Hey there,
    Some Playtime Rabbit would be fantastic.
    Little Adventure?

  • Thom

    The Decemberists – Eli the Barrow Boy – Awesome song

    For Peter Green with Fleetwood Mac, try ‘Albatross’ or ‘Oh Well Pt 2’ – both wonderful instrumentals.

    As far as wimpy, Fleetwood Mac, over its carrer, was a rhythm section that changed out other members with varying degrees of success. Do you remember Bob Welch?

  • Chip


    Two Cow Garage – Lydia

    Can get it from iTunes or from

    Submarines – Shoelaces

  • Jeff Ryan

    what was that??? that amazing, looping guitar piece?

  • Stephy

    I agree with Jessica– any Playtime Rabbit would be great if you haven’t played some already. “Little Adventure” is my favorite. (:

  • William

    A Host of Artist For your Consideration;Yuri Yanakov,Nawal,Eight Bold Souls,Pedro Giraudo,Shawn Lee’s Ping Pong Orchestra,Frank McCulloch y sus Amigos,Kiran Ahluwalia,Depedro,Burkina Electric,Te Vaka,Andrew Thomas & Heath Bergersen,Gaida, Krishna Das,Luisa Maita,Sergeant Garcia,Ethiopiques Either/Orchestra, La Exelencia.
    Last but certainly not least Buffy Sainte-Marie her latest Running For The Drum. Caught her and her band as well as Many of these acts at a great music festival called Globalquerque. My new aspiration is to be able to rock half as hard at 70 years young as the great Buffy.

  • Jessica Orosco

    Ledbelly- House of the Rising song. Beautiful

  • Jeff Ryan

    pantha du prince! hadn’t heard that track…great! ‘the splendour’ is my jam at the moment
    great show paul!


  • Andrew

    Have you heard Klaatu’s “Little Nutrino” from 1976?

    • Paul Slavens

      alright , a flurry of groovy comments and suggestions. thanks yall

  • Devon

    hey! how about “the crowd” by cat empire?

  • Ray Worth

    @Thom – Yeah I was sort of ok with the Bob Welch, Fleetwood Mac era but I quit listening to them when Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham joined the band.
    BTW – thanks for the Goglo Bordello link. Very cool, I’ll have to check it out more later.

  • Cynthia


    Your show is WONDERFUL!!!

    Would you be interested in playing something by Brule’ ? (Paul LaRoche)

    I haven’t heard them in a couple of years but seem to recall they “rocked the show” a couple of times.



  • Cynthia

    Once again, I LOVE listening to your show.

    I wouldn’t mind hearing something from Claude Hay, he has an ablum entitled “Deep Fried Satisfied” or Imelda May, perhaps?

    Just a random thought or two.


    • Paul Slavens

      Thanks for the good company, nice comments and excellent music suggestions. See you all right back here next sunday night.

  • decker

    I would love to hear isobel campbell / mark lanegan rambling man. Thx!

  • Danny

    some possible songs for next week: “The Hole” by Glen Phillips; “Fisherman’s Daughter” by Daniel Lanois; “Rhubarb” by MC 900 Ft Jesus.

  • Thom

    How about ‘Nevermore’ from Queen II?
