  • Paul Slavens

    I am here and ready for your communication.

  • Ron Bulla

    Greetings Paul- “Walken” by Wilco, “The Outsider” by Rodney Crowell, “Phenomenal Woman” by Ruthie Foster. Nothing ground breaking, but good songs all. Wishing coolness and rain on my Texas friends.

    Wow. My first posting of a music link. Alert the media.

  • Paul Slavens

    thank you
    looks like you got the place to yourself tonite

  • Philip

    Hey, it’s me again. How about “Things in Life” by Dennis Brown? Classic Reggae. “All I Want” by Bobby McFerrin in the album Simple Pleasures for something more vocal.

    An album to check out (heard it reviewed on NPR) is “Yes We Can: Songs About Leaving Africa”; a compilation rap/hip-hop album that features all African artists.

    Thanks Paul

    love this show! (accidentally posted this on your other blog for Track by Track)

  • Ron Bulla
  • Regan

    Something off Slayers newest album.

    Or some Paul Simon. Or something off the Passion Sources album, (Peter Gabriel’s label).

  • Paul Slavens

    well, that sounds like an interesting challenge
    I will check it out

  • untcampbell

    Great show. Thanks for challenging me with the interesting and eclectic mix.

  • David C.

    Hmmm, Hot Chip, Roxy Music…. all that’s needed is Dizzee Rascal (a good well-known track from his is “Holiday”), and you will have the big names in London’s “Love Box”.

    I am loving the variety tonight.

    something from the album…

    Janaelle Monae’s “Archandroid”,
    Mike Patton’s “Mondo Cane”,
    Micachu’s “Jewelry”
    Fuck Button’s “Tarot Sport”.

    I hope for cooler weather as well! Chill music shall help!

  • Paul Slavens

    thanks for coming along for the ride!

  • dan

    g spot tornado my ass. it sounded like pre-red crimson. totally cool, btw. maybe next week you can hit us with the real deal. something off starless and bible black perhaps. keep up the good work. you rock paul.

  • listener mark

    The new Books record, The Way Out, is finally here and man is it good. I think “The Story of Hip Hop” would be an interesting track to share with the congregation. Hallelujah!

  • Gthing

    How bout some Tea Leaf Green.. A Piano Jam Band from San Fran…

    Heres Apocalyptic Cowboy…

    or Innocence…

    or Standing Still

  • Paul Slavens

    Already played so much of the new Books record the last couple weeks I figured I better give them a rest. I love that band.

    Harry Patch (In Memory Of) – Radiohead

  • Young and Brave

    Thanks so much for playing a song from our album Paul! We love your show and are honored that we got to be a part of it tonight. It’s great to see someone fighting the good fight for local music.

    I wasn’t able to write last night, but I have two artists I think you should check out. One is a band out of Charlotte, NC called Matrimony. I love their song “Flee or Fight”. Their music can be found on their Facebook page:!/pages/Matrimony/243191776665?v=app_19507961798&ref=ts

    The other is a musician from Pennsylvania who recorded here in Dallas named Kim Edwards. Her song “It Was Me” is poignant and sweet. It can be found on her MySpace page:
