    I am here, give me lots of ideas for music
    very old
    whatever you think would be of interest

  • Les Connally

    We’re here, listening! Just got nuthin to suggest right now!/ shrug/

  • Brandi

    can you please play some M83 “Skin of the Night” (song sounds like The Cocteau Twins) or any M83? If not that, then how about some very old Charlatans UK? thanks

  • paul slavens

    I will check em out Brandi

  • Stephanie

    I was happy to turn on the radio and hear some St. Vincent from ‘Marry Me.’ Thanks!

    As for music suggestions, I have been grooving on Warpaint, Glasser, and The Dodos recently. Lord Huron’s “The Stranger” has also been getting some play.

  • Brandi

    thanks for the Joy Division!

  • megan

    Please play the Jesus and Marychain-just like honey. I am driving from Arlington to Denton with a broken cd player.

  • paul

    Joe Morello died yesterday in his NJ home at 82. Undoubtedly one of the greatest jazz drummers of our time. If you can squeeze it in, how about some Take Five by the Dave Brubeck quartet, which he played on the original 1959 recording. Thanks. RIP Joe Morello.

    in Ruidoso

  • paul slavens

    hey folks, I choose all the music ahead of time, but I will definitely be looking at these great suggestions first thing next week when I get ready to do next sundays show.

    thanks for all the great suggestions so far
    more more more

  • Anne

    Just FYI – Lovecats is not from the 90s – it’s from the early 80s.

  • Frank

    Thanks for the great tunes Paul! Your show always takes my wife and I to another place. Were enjoying the nice evening on our deck with you. Would you be willing to spin some Wall of Voodoo? Anything except Mexican Radio.

  • paul slavens

    I told you I wasnt paying attention at the time. : )

  • Kelly

    Adrian Belew recorded an acoustic version of Matte Kudasai. It’s terrific. Also, you might like The Clarendonians’ Shoo Be Doo Be Doo. Early rocksteady from a couple of Jamaican kids.

  • Kelly

    Everything Gives You Cancer by Joe Jackson.

  • Kevin Kunreuther

    This Oregon track is very cinematic. I’ll have to find the full version.
    BTW, suggestion for next week one of three tracks from Pete Townshend’s Scoop album, his collection of demo tracks and experimental recordings: “Politician”, kind of social commentary Who disguised as a heavy Motown number, “Goin’ Fishing”, very influenced by Beach Boys Smiley Smile album, or the demo of “Magic Bus”, which was originally recorded in 1965, was never really considered as a serious contender for a Who song, ’til Pete and band reconsidered it, after failure of the “Dogs” single in ’68.

  • Regan

    If you’ll play Wall of Voodoo, play something by Stan Ridgway off of Neon Mirage. Also, Slim Gaillard, I think, again?

  • Kelly

    Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah!

  • paul slavens

    thanks for all the great suggestions yall
    have a great week and tune in next week to hear some of this great music
