    I await your wonderful comments and suggestions.

    My son wouldn’t understand the Ballad of Dwight Fry, so, I’ll request School’s Out. Because it is, next Thursday.

    Blue Oyster Cult’s She’s as Beautiful as a Foot:

    John Prine:

    Bonnie Raitt and John Prine:

    Hook, line, sinker and rod/reel:

    Yeah, baby. Do with it what you wish.
    Thank you and a wish that a few folks donate as they can afford. It adds up.

      A wonderful mix of tunes, thanks.
      And yes, every little bit helps.

  • Jerem69

    Fifty bucks in your name from my son Dylan. Free radio lives. Commercial free!

  • allmusic

    nothing too loud or quiet?? Compared to what, exactly?

    • Jerem69

      He’s played “Compared to What?” twice in the last month or so. But, keep pushing those limits. I hate glass ceilings. Give me the Starlight Theatre any night.
      I’m still trying to get him to play Lou Reed’s “Last Shot.”

      if its 5 minutes of distorted guitar and crashing drums and screaming vocals, I prolly will pass. Eno ambient music is too soft, I like things I know can be heard in a car driving down the road.

      • allmusic

        Let’s see: Hendrix: distorted guitar, check; crashing drums, check; (sometimes) screaming vocals, check…

  • Can this include video game music?

  • Philip

    Kind of dead on the blog tonight. Guess I better pick up the slack:
    * Eric’s Trip, “My Chest is Empty” (this band is hard to find, so maybe you could just play some Julie Doiron.)
    * Beverly Sills (soprano), Louise (Act 3): “Depuis le jour,” composer Gustave Charpentier
    * Mama!Milk, “August”
    * O’Death, “Ground Stump”
    * Pascal Comelade, “Les Yeux Noirs

      thanks man, it sure does help

  • Philip

    You should do an entire show with your Ira Glass impersonation voice.

  • Dallajuan

    How about the classic, Last Night A DJ Saved My Life by InDeep?

    • Anonymous

      never heard of it, cool !

  • Ray Worth

    How about something by Jolie Holland or Kristy Kruger. The Ballad of Dwight Fry by Alice Cooper would be good but probably to long.

    Good evening Mr.Slavens. Tonights show is turning out really nice. You should do more impressions. Hows about “If A Song Could Be President” by OVER THE RHINE?

    • Anonymous

      how about it !!!

  • Lyle

    Hey Paul, enjoying the set as always… how about playing “The Bet” or “I”m Gonna Be Your Man” by The Sideshow Tragedy next week.

  • Kevin Hood

    Mr. Slavens!
    is there any way you could play my dear friend and local talent Emmeline Miles? She’s a singer-songwriter from Dallas who blends pop and jazz pretty seamlessly. “The Story” is a pretty great track of hers to start out with.
    Shameless plug of my own: the entry on my music blog about Emmeline

  • Ray Worth

    Blind Willie McTell from the album Hillbilly Voodo by Barrence Whitfield and Tom Russell.!/album/Hillbilly+Voodoo/4600956

  • Kevinwom

    Please play The Dunwell’s I Could Be A King. It’s uplifting.

  • PeterJ

    Awesome show as always Mr. Slavens!

    I am sooooo glad Robert Plant didn’t just tour state fairs and casinos singing old Zeppelin songs. He and his Band of Joy will be at the Meyerson 7/23!

    Love Silver Rider
    And Cindy, I’ll Marry You One Day

    And for something with an Electronica flavor; Paul Oakenfold from the disc Bunkka
    ft. voice over by the late Hunter S. Thompson

    Warning: he does use the word sh*t twice

    Thanks for being on the air! I re-upped my membership last week during the show. I was one of the voices in the wilderness. 🙂

  • Paul Muller

    Earl Grant – ‘The End’

  • Samuel Jenkins
