    • Hey Kelly,
      Thanks for your comment. Apologies, but had to edit out the last word.

      Director, Art&Seek

  • Mike W

    Hey P, just joined

    Field Music has a new cd–Measure
    it’d be great to hear something from it

  • lets hear it
    its pledge night
    but I still need music input

  • Rock and roll
    doesn’t rock no more – Art S Revolutionary.

    I request the new music that isn’t safe and generic, that gets back to the basics, Post-bands music. It started right here in Dallas and now is all over the world. Thanks.

  • play
    tony allen&jimi tenor*selfish gene
    howzabout something from the
    willie nelson+wynton marsalis album!?

  • Please play some Reid Paley, he’s out of Brooklyn, formerly with post-punk band The Five out of Pittsburgh. Anyone who’s a fan of Tom Waits will dig him…..

  • Paul,

    I sent you an e-mail earlier today alerting you to the subtle sophistication and perhaps overlooked genius of the long-soldiering H Tim Sorea, particularly the noteworthy “No More, No More” from their mid-seventies apogee – did you get ’em into tonight’s show? If not, do you think we’ll be hearing from them on your show in the coming weeks?

  • Lawrence Sutherland

    Your Fever Ray song reminded me of Telepathe. I like their early work and would love to hear some!

  • Im here but a bit busy with pledge stuff
    sorry about not responding promptly
    thanks for everything so far
    if you havent pledged DO IT
    make sure I still have a home on this great new station

  • Is there a link on the website for business sponsors. $1 a day or more?

  • Raybies

    Paul, this is the first time my wife and I have heard your show. It is simply amazing! We’re signing up and donating and it is because of you and your show. It has been 3 years since we’re heard a show we’ve liked this much. It has been a long time without great radio in our lives. In our humble opinion, your show should fill this time slot every evening!

    Thank you!

  • Pledge made.

  • David

    You are the reason I listen to Texas radio even though I live in Oregon. Thanks for the music you share. I would love to hear something from Pancho Sanchez. Oh, I pledge allegiance to you, too.

  • thanks so much for all your support and suggestions

  • John Cale and Brian Eno.
