    Im here getin ready to let loose. LEt me hear from you.

    • Chip

      Cool, I like challenging music!

      Not a suggestion for the show because it’s too long at 7:04, but give a listen to David Lynch’s “Crazy Clown Time” that came out last week. Wow.

      It’s every bit as bizarre as you’d expect from the name, and add to that the David Lynch factor and it’s like an explosion of oddity.

  • Andrew

    Eric Clapton’s “Modern Girl” is an usually unique & mellow song from his catalog. I’ve never heard it played on the radio.

  • SJ

    The 10 year old would like to hear some Document-era REM. Paul would like to hear some Jaques Brel. The 12 year old suggests the Beatles. Me? How about some King Bucks. Love your show, so do the kids.

    • Paul Slavens

      So glad you like the show, its great having company. I put the music together during the week so
      I cant actually play requests the night they come in, but listen next week !!!!

  • Regan

    Here are my ideas, and my ideas are stated here, for music, to play, for broadcast, on your radio station, using the technology known as radio:
    alvin youngblood hart – illinois blues
    barbara dane – 900 hundred miles
    snooks eaglin – sophisticated blues
    Maggi Pierce and EJ – Jaded
    Andrew Bird’s Bowl of Fire – Depression Pasillo
    Dr. John Plays Mac Rebennack: The Legendary Sessions Vol. 2
    Madeleine Peyroux – California raining

  • Haven’t heard Dali’s Car in years. Thanks for the reminder.

  • Jacobo

    We’re passing through town on our way back to Austin via Eureka Springs AR and were wondering if you could play a track from Ghosts Along the Brazos, a new band from Austin. Name of the song is “Before I’m Done” and thanks, diggin the show!

  • Thom

    ‘Oh Well’ great song. That was part 1. There is also a part 2 that is a bluesy instrumental, but no one plays it.

    How about playing R.E.M.’s ‘Belong’ from ‘Out of TIME’

  • Rayne

    It has been a while since I have heard anything by Gong. If you have any music by Gong I would appreciate if you played something.

  • A number of bands including the Hope Trust played Art Con 7 last night. One lucky person won the Octopus Piano.

  • Thom

    How about, Toad the Wet Sprocket, ‘The Nightingale Song’ from ‘Fear’?

  • Shelley

    The repeating chord progression in Robert Francis’ “Little Girl”(?)reminded me of “Fallen” by Storyhill, a folk duo out of Bozeman, MT. Storyhill was one of the six winners of the Kerrville Folk Festival’s New Folk singer-songwriter contest in 2007. Their tight harmonies evoke the Everlies, and their songs are intelligent and beautiful. I’d love to hear them on your show. Thanks for asking, and thanks for great, fearless programming.

    If you liked “Sir Ruglsby III” by Klatuu…You might want to check out Klatuu’s song “Madman”

  • James

    Amazing show tonight! I guess I heard “Oh Well” a lot as a kid but never had a clue it was Fleetwood Mac. The Daryl Hall track was also a pleasant shock.

  • Amy

    The Klaatu song was insanely good, but it was Spinal Tap’s Stonehenge that was a perfect finale to the weekend. Extra fun show tonight Paul!

    • Paul Slavens

      thanks for the nice comments you guys. hope you can come back next week.
      cheers !!!!

  • Chip

    >> I guess I heard “Oh Well” a lot as a kid but never had a clue it was Fleetwood Mac.

    Me too! I’d have guessed it was Zeppelin.
