  • Paul Slavens

    Ok rock stars, lets hear some great interesting suggestions !!!

  • James Lovell

    I think it might be cool to hear “George Took a Shovel” by Circus Devils from the Sgt. Disco record…or you know, I think it’s been over a month since I heard some tune-yards here. That would be nice…maybe gangsta or woolywollygong but I certainly yield to your better judgement on all such matters.

    • Paul Slavens

      tuneyards is already scheduled for the first song of the 9 oclock hour !! Gangsta!! Remix !!!!

  • jon

    Maybe some BMRC

  • BOBBY D.

    How about some Gov’t Mule maybe something like Million Miles From Yesterday, or Shape I’m In

  • John

    Why do you only play the good stuff two hours a week???

    I was a member way back when you switched from classical to eclectic – those were the days.

    Buy for the two short hours if you could play something along the genre of Robert Earl Keen, Lyle Lovett or Brave Combo.

    With all due respect, the new KXT just isn’t that great except the two hours on Sunday night.

  • Sarita

    Might we have some Morphine and/or Sleep Whale?

  • Kelly Bradley

    Could you please play Istanbul (not Constantinople) by They Might be Giants?

  • gwinkle

    I would love to hear som Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Any and all selections would be acceptable.

  • Sheila

    Want to hear Mi Zapatos from 10 Hands…love them!

  • Sheila

    Want to hear Mi Zapatos from 10 Hands…love them!
