    Etta the Treasure is missed. Thanks for that. The Gregory Page was excellent, thanks for that as well, along with all the other good stuff I’ve never heard before. You might want to check out Shakey Graves @ http://shakeygraves.bandcamp.com/album/roll-the-bones … I like ’em all. “Roll the Bones” is a good example. Your eclecticism knows no bounds. Be it known your art is appreciated.

    Awwwww, I just played Henry Lee off that album last week !!!! but i will consider giving him another spin, just for you.

  • Dan

    There is never enough Les Claypool or T. Rex on the radio. Thank you Paul. I woke up with “Blue Moon” as played by the Marcels playing in my noggin. How about playing that? Some Elmore James or Willie Dixon would be nice too. Keep up the great work. Here’s to keeping the radio interesting.

      • Dan

    “Midnight in Paris” opening … excellent

  • Anonymous

    Hi Paul. I am digging:

    U.S. Girls “Island Song”
    http://freemusicarchive.org/music/US_Girls/US_GIRLS_ON_KRAAK/The_Island_Song_

    Big Blood “She Sells Sanctuary”
    http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Big_Blood/Already_Gone_I/She_Sells_Sanctuary

    I love the Cult’s original version of She Sells Sanctuary. The Big Blood cover caught my attention for a number of reasons, but the biggest was the altered lyrics. The opening line they use “The Texas sun makes my back burn” is miles away from the original “The heads that turn make my back burn.”

    • Anonymous

      far out, I will investigate these leads this week, cheers

    • Daniel Jacobs

      They use different lyrics only because they misheard the original lyrics. This is a very common mistake, for people to think Ian is saying “Texas sun.” Seriously.

      You think they would have double checked that before they covered the song though. LMAO

  • Thom

    How about:
    Neil Young – ‘Sugar Mountain’
    Neko Case – ‘The Pharaohs’ from ‘Middle Cyclone’
    Definitely more Nick Cave
    And maybe some Leonard Cohen, like ‘First we take Manhatten”
    Thanks Paul

  • Judy

    Hey Paul, just a suggestion…. Next week is the anniversary of the passing of the great Willie Dixon. So many great tunes to choose from there. It would be a nice tribute.

    • Anonymous

    Radio edits of longer pieces is a great idea. More please.

    well, heck yeah

    • Pamitha42

      I also just looked at my own darn FB profile pic and wondered if you’ve ever played Fever in the Funkhouse. I know you played David Garza after his gig at the Kessler some time ago but I always like to hear him too.

  • Thom

    You can play Patti Smith every week.
    I saw her at the Gypsy Tea Room a long while back, Fantastic.
