      Wow, thanks for the First Aid Kit, unbelievable that they are are a pair of twenty year old sisters from Sverige (Sweden). Great show tonight. Can’t go wrong, as suggested, with the Velvet Underground, Lou Reed, or Cale.

  • Gabriel

  • Jack Aluminium

    I’d enjoy “Steppin’ Out” by Steel Pulse from the Earth Crisis recording if you’d be so kind. Big vocal harmonies and nice thick reggae basslines.

    • Anonymous

      wonderful
      thank you

  • Danny

    Great show as always.
    Can you play Portable People–Ten Years After

    • Anonymous

      if its not too long soft or loud and no dirty words and I can download it , I am all over it.

    • Jerem69

      http://www.amazon.com/Portable-People/dp/B003E3DR3M

      No worries:

      TEN YEARS AFTER PORTABLE PEOPLE
      See them at the airport with their cases in their hand
      Got a ten day package in another land
      They’re the jet age gypsies with a super-sonic sound
      They’re the portable people, and they take themselves around

      Portable people, flyin’ in the air
      Portable people, goin’ everywhere
      Por….ta….ble – Peo….ple!

      See them at the window with a panoramic view
      It’s the only time they’ve noticed that the sky is colored blue
      One will have a cloak and a pair of wooden clogs
      He liked the avocado, but he didn’t like the vase

      Portable people, flyin’ in the air
      Portable people, goin’ everywhere
      Por….ta….ble – Peo….ple!

  • Judy JR

    Okay, my first actual list and not random, multiple entries/requests.

    These are some artists/songs I’ve been turned on to recently and enjoy. Thoughts I’d pass them along…..
    1) Sarah Blasko does this pretty cover of Outkast’s “Hey Ya!” (I know….but just take a listen anyway)
    2) Kate Miller-Heifer “Sarah”
    3) Oh Mercy “Stay, Please Stay”
    4) Julia Stone “Let’s Forget All the Things We Say”
    5) Really cute song by Soko called, “Dandy Cowboys”

    Hopefully, these aren’t too girly:-)

    Thanks, Paul. Enjoying tonight’s show, as usual.

      I will check it all out
      thanks so much

    So this week I heard Tanya Tucker for the first time, I liked “Would You Lay With Me In a Field of Stone” so much I had the YouTube video on repeat through my car audio so I could take breaths and gasp in between each one. So maybe any classic country. I also enjoy hearing Willie Nelson’s cover of that song, and a great version of The Tennessee Waltz (Otis redding, or Norah jones and Bonnie raitt did it as a duet recently), and Who’s Sorry Now (Connie Francis standard but I heard a 1920s jazz orchestra version on YouTube, give me a sec I’ll come back with the name). You totally suckered me into your awesome covers game. xoxo, Liz

    • Jerem69

      My wife’s request, Paul’s grace.
      Kids, donate to KXT when you get a spare quid or so! And request something. Anything!
      Perhaps even “Little Red Lights” from “Something, Anything” by Todd Rundgren.

  • Ray Worth

    Jimmy Thackery Cool Guitars or Dancing on Broken Glass.
    Or The Nighthawks when Jimmy Thackery was still their guitarist.
    The Paladins
    Not sure if you can play Cool Guitars. It has the “B” word in it.

  • Philip

    You said torrential, so I’ll request several for you to choose from:
    1.) Andrey Triana – “Lost Where I Belong”
    2.) Nora Dean – “Angie La La”
    3.) Q-Tip – “Life is Better (feat. Norah Jones)” *I’m pretty sure there aren’t any cuss words, but double check*
    4.) Cab Calloway – “Minnie the Moocher”
    5.) Raphael Saadiq – “Good Man” *requested already, but I don’t think you played it*
    6.) anything by Les McCAnn

    • Philip

      *edit: meant to say ANDREYA Triana. F.Y.I.: She sang vocals for a few tracks in Bonobo’s album Black Sands. enjoy.

      sorry for the double post. I got an error message the first couple of times.

    • Jerem69

      “Bugger?”
      Yeah, the BBC might not approve..

    • Pamitha42

      bitch? Bastard? Balls? Boobs? Bananas? Beards? Balloons?

      • Ray Worth

        Paul said to keep it polite but the line in the song is “i’m gonna sell the bitch’s car”

        • Anonymous

          yeah, maybe not.

    • Anonymous

      I will check it, maybe i can do an “edit”

  • Jerem69

    Coolness. Much of the new and local stuff is a nice change of pace. I enjoyed the Bonobo. OK, I’m thinking of some blasts from my past:
    J Geils Band
    “Wammer Jammer”
    or “It Ain’t What You Do (It’s How You Do It)”

    And something, anything, by Little Walter.
    It’s a harmonica thing..

    • Anonymous

      wonderful
      thanks for the suggestions

  • Pamitha42

    I would like to request Van Morrison’s You don’t pull no punches but you can’t push the river from Veedon Fleece. I would also like to request you kick the sound guy in the shins tonight at BST because he’s apparently lost or broken his phone again. Thanks!

  • Rbulla4630

    “Dance Like A Monkey” by The New York Dolls.
    “Whatever Happened To My Rock ‘N’ Roll (Punk Song)” by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

    Paul, I loved that Lee Dorsey track. I’ve got a few of his songs on comps but haven’t heard that one. So good.

  • Kyle Kromer

    Hey Paul, I think I’ve heard you play this before in the past ( : but being spring time and all and based on things I’ve read recently, I think Sneaky Snake by TTHall is in order.
