    Psyched about my King Khan and BBQ Show request making it on the show! FYI these guys are a duo, believe it or not. King Khan plays lead guitar and vocals, while BBQ (AKA Mark Sultan) plays rhythm guitar, bass drum, kick drum and tambourine all at once while singing, thusly:

    Howdy, thanks for taking our requests!
    Speaking of which, please bring unto us some righteous Dred Zeppelin.

    BTW: I read that Lightnin’ Hopkins actually believed in “mojo hand” magic. Poor monkey. On that note, I also understand that Jimi Hendrix wrote Voodoo Child after a “day trip” to Zion National Park. Zion, Zion.. ’cause I’m a Voodoo Child..
    Yeah.
    I named a dog Zion Voodoo Child. She lived up to her name.

      far out man.
      I will see about that Dred. gonna have to pick carefully

      • Jerem69

        My son’s real keen on The Immigrant Song version on DeJah Voodoo. Yeah, I misspelled “Dread” My bad..
        So, that last tune had me imagining Peewee Herman dancing on a bar in platform shoes. Is that something that I should seek counseling about?
        ;>)

          It’s OK. What they shoulda called the band anyway. Led Zeppelin misspelled “Lead.” ..

    I’m getting ready to start a unit called “Music as Literature” in my ENL (formerly ESL) classes. Since I often have the same students more than one year (and because I don’t want to seem COMPLETELY unhip, I change the music we use each year. You are like my personal music finder for new tunes to keep the unit fresh. Thanks, Paul

    Good Evening Mr. Slavens! Wonderful show already. Loved the The Shins track. And I think you picked one of my favorite Andrew Bird songs to play last week. Tenuousness. Thank you for being awsome.
    INNAWAY- Honeybee
    DAVID BOWIE- I’m Deranged from the LOST HIGHWAY soundtrack

    • Anonymous

      groovy.
      thanx for being totally wicked.

    • Cut Loose

      excellent Bowie song. I played the crap out that CD back in high school.

  • Jerem69

    Shoot, I forgot to mention Chris Whitley. I’m thinking Ode to Joy from the Rocket House disc. Sounding great tonight. Electronica, Ms. Clooney, Wierd Al (Frankie’s son), trip-hop, blues, bring it on, baby!
    This show reminds me of a poster I had on my wall in the ’60s. Captioned “Mind of Man – urp!” it was a truly psychedelic wonder to behold. It was drawn to it for it’s graphic 3-D rendering. It featured a guy in the middle of this surreal mess of girls, castles, dragons, fish swimming by in mid-air, Escher-like renderings, just whatever came to the artist’s mind. I truly enjoy the esoteric and am a “seeker of experiences” and that is why I donate to this-here station in the name of the Paul Slavens show. Thanks again Paul.
    Wow, my radio’s glowing.
    Oh, yeah. Vacuum tubes.

      thank you x 2

  • Holt83

    Great show, Paul, thanks for playing my request! I love the Magnetic Fields, haven’t heard that one yet

    Could you play some Buckethead next week? Specifically,
    “Whitewash” from his album Colma (if you’re feeling chill), or “Nun Chucka Kata” from Monsters and Robots (if you’re feeling pumped).

    • Anonymous

      sure, as long as its all clean and groovy

    • Jerem69

      Yes, Magnetic Fields was most groovy. I’m thinking 10,000 Teslas groovy. That’s a whole lotta Gauss – actually, that’s 100000000 Gauss.

  • Jsandrico

    Do you know a song by this chick, don’t know her name but the lyric I remember is “east maybe west baby I don’t know” ive heard it on 91.7, but I cant find it anywhere

    • Anonymous

      I think you are talking about a song by Bosque Brown off the album Baby
      I think its called the Train Song
      you have good taste

  • Greg

    Dr Dog Please!!

  • Pamitha42

    Have you played any X lately? I’d like to hear something from Under the Big Black Sun. Missing BST out here in NM but glad I have you streaming.

      miss you too. xoxo

  • Farscrape

    Love the show. Sounds great through the old Marantz. I’ve always felt that Concrete Blonde was one of the most underrated bands if its time. The album Group Therapy has a couple of great songs – “When I was a Fool” and “Take me Home”. Hope you like them…

    I’ll second the request for Buckethead also.

    • Anonymous

      seconded and passed

    • Tolake

      Concrete Blonde was was one of those under-rated bands that never got the attention that they deserved, like: “God Is a Bullet” from ‘Free’ or just about anything from ‘Bloodletting’ starting with the first song, “Bloodletting (The Vampire Song)’.

    I’m trying to get GibsonGirl to recommend us some of her collection of Arabic inspired trip hop goodies. She had turned me on to some Thievery Corporation stuff (took me to a great show in Dallas a year and some ago). I know she has more cool stuff but I have crummy taste so I want her to pick one…

      make her do your bidding, then report back to me

    Think you might be able to find some old Tom Shinness in the archives for next week? Something from his early CD’s “Something Inseparable” or “Many Waters”? That was back when he used to play weekends on the patio of Crescent City Cafe in Deep Ellum. We would catch Tom there and then head over to Dada. Ah, youth!!

      yikes, unless its available on the internet, I dont have any , sorry.

  • Tolake

    Hi Paul, you can play Patti Smith every week.
    How about ‘Glitter In Their Eyes’ from ‘Gung Ho’?

    • Anonymous

      my personal music picking philosophy will not allow me to play anything every week.
      but i could maybe go one more week

      • Jerem69

        Could give her a respite and throw on some Stooges next week. Diversity is good. Very good.

  • Andrew

    David Bowie “I’m Deranged” as an earlier suggestion is good. Probably Bowie’s best song besides “Ashes to Ashes”.

    My suggestions:

    Mark Lanegan Band – “The Gravedigger’s Song”
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVCNSZPPr9M

    Alpines – “Drive” (Akira Kiteshi Remix) {I found a free download of this on lastfm.com)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nvh3ziWdm_k

    Town Hall- “Just Watching My Breath” {I found a free download of this on lastfm.com)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTW2XNOiFSA

    Avant La Lettre – “Jesus Come Back” {I found a free download of this on lastfm.com)

      LIST!!!
      i love lists

  • Tolake

    I not sure what gave me the chills more, the slow motion action of the scene or Pippin singing this song from:
    ‘The Lord of the rings: The Return of the King’ – ‘The Steward of Gondor’
    Check it out.

    Yes, Horses.

  • Courtshipfarm

    I’d love to hear some Joan Armentrading, like “Opportunity” or anything on that album. Also going way back “Fresh Garbage” or “The Twelve Dreams of Dr Sardonacus” from Spirit. I like to know what happened to Randy California .

  • Tom Gilliland

    I listen every Sunday while at work. A 70′s band called Rare Bird had a great song titled “Sympathy” and ” Under Your Wing”. Maybe throw in a little Barefoot Jerry, “If There Were Only Time For Love”. What female band did that beautiful accopella version of The Who’s “Tatto”? Thanks Tom Gilliland
