  • Jeff Ryan

    • Paul Slavens

      thanks Jeff. xo

  • Liz

    I have been loving two bands lately. Pearl & the beard help me keep a smile on my face in rush hour traffic and Of Monster & Men keeps my wonder of “how does Iceland produce such amazing music!?” alive.

  • Paul

    Thanks for all of the great Sunday nights in 2011, and 2012 is starting out so very fine as well. Happy New Year. And, for 2012, perhaps some selections by Cassandra Wilson. Whether covering U2, The Beatles, The Monkees, Glen Campbell, she makes each tune uniquely her own. Here is her take on an old Stylistics song.


    All the best in 2012:
    in Ruidoso

  • Aaron
