    Remember when Marianne Faithfull performed at Club Dada?

    • Anonymous

      YIKES!!! No I dont. I prolly didnt know about her then. I only really got introduced to her after I started doing this show, like so much of the music that I love now, I got introduced by a suggestion from a listener!

  • PeterJ

    Appointment radio… Love Sunday nights on KXT! Great show as always. Love Marianne Faithful too. Heaven.

    Brendan Perry – Sloth from Eye of the Hunter

      Thank you very much
      I will look into this, just played some Mars Volta a couple weeks ago, pretty intense stuff but I will check it out.

  • Ray Worth

    Something from one of Larry “Rhino” Reinhardt bands – Captian Beyond or Iron Butterfly

    • Anonymous

      Captain Beyond! I have played that before, got any Iron Butterfly song suggestions?

      • Ray Worth

        Hmmm, I haven’t listened to Iron Butterfly in years so I checked out their best of album on Amazon. They sound really really dated now. Real Fright is about the best I could find. As far as Captian Beyond – Sufficiently Breathless or Dancing Madly Backwards.

      • Ray Worth

        Actually in hindsight, neither of those suggestions were any good. How about Snooks Eaglin.

  • Sjhesselbacher

    Can you play for me Jeff Beck’s “Ain’t Superstitious”. Love the show! Keep up the great variety! I’m loving It!

    • Anonymous

      I will do my best , thanks

      • PeterJ

        Anything from the albums Truth or Beckola is great!

    • PeterJ

      Love that old Jeff Beck stuff when Rod Stewart was on Vocals! I second that motion.

        well then ok, I love the old Rod Stewart stuff too.

    We need psychobilly! Southern Culture on the Skids, the Cramps, or the Rev. Horton Heat.

      Done

    • JudyJR

      Oh Yes! Rev Horton Heat. I second that suggestion!

  • gabriel

    I dig anything by Of Montreal… but may I suggest “An Eludarian Instance”

    • Anonymous

      cool, is this off the new album?

      • gabriel

        Nope, it’s from Skeletal Lamping (2008)

  • Cut loose

    Good Show! I tune in every Sunday. Kudos for the Kraftwerk song.

  • JudyJR

    Sorry that I am using up your space and didn’t have my wits about me to combine comments and my suggestion for a future show.
    Have you heard Lanu’s “Beautiful Trash”? It’s a good one.

    • Anonymous
