    Im here and have my radar on. lemme hear some good suggestions.

    Here’s my thought of the week:
    Brian Auger, a man who is truly captain when sailing on the Hammond B-3, should get some air time. My thoughts run towards “Compared to What.” Now, there is a live version on youtube that really kicks, but, it is 9:45. So, Amazon has a 2007 mp3 version that is “only” 7:52. Perhaps you may find room in the show for that. I do recommend the live version. Hint..hint.

    “Bendito” by Y La Bamba
    “Canto Negro” by M.A.K.U. SoundSystem
    “One Second of Love” by Nite Jewel
    “Porque te vas” by Jeanette

    Those songs have dominated my weekend. Also, glad I can finally catch some the show. It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve tuned in, but I’m discovering some good stuff here.

    I will check it, one way or the other you have given me an excuse to play the Residents. and that makes me very very happy.,

    all those suggestions sound great.

    Quick question – is there a way to get a listing of what’s playing now, or what the last few tracks were? (Separate from your end-of-show list, that is – something that’s more-or-less live?)

    • Anonymous

      well, I think I am not supposed to publish a set list until after the show. its a licensing thing. but if there were some specific songs you wanted to know, you could kind of describe em.

        Nah, I can wait – the main impetus for asking was “Is this really Rod Stewart? It sure sounds like it…” (And I was right!)

        Two related suggestions for the moment : there’s a Boston guitarist by the name of Charlie Chesterman who has some country-inflected roots rock that’s just gorgeous. He used to co-front a band called Scruffy the Cat who were also pretty sweet. Either of those would be great. My recommendations from Chesterman would be a song called “True Love Song #9″, and “Blue Russian” from Scruffy the Cat. (“Blue Russian” is simply EXQUISITE.)

    Hey,

    F.Y.I., Múm is from Iceland, that same amazing little island that brought you Björk and Sigur Rós in music and Olafur Eliasson and Katrín Sigurdardóttir in art.

    How about “Kämpa” by Drivan?
    It’d be cool if you could play “The Warning” by Phil Cohran and The Artistic Heritage Ensemble to get some jazz, but it’s 6:55 which might be a bit long for you. Maybe you could play it with a short song in the segment like “Lips” (1:20) by Micachu & The Shapes?

    Last suggestion, “Artistry In Percussion” by Stan Kenton.

      ah yes, Bjorkland. they need to learn to spell stuff. thanks for the great suggestions.

    With Raul posting all those oldies on his FB page, it made me go looking through old tunes…think you could find the Judy Collins version of “In My Life” for next week? Actually anything by Judy would be good.
