Good Evening. Got some interesting music tonite. This is where you can leave your music suggestions for future shows. Make sure the language is acceptable and that the tracks are not too long (6min+) or too abrasively loud or ambiently soft.
New to me this week:
Mama!Milk
Earl Grant
Father John Misty
Pascal Comelade
The Asteroid Galaxy Tour
Israel Kamakawiwoole
Intodeep

      BOC and Lou Reed in one weekend. Cool!
      Lou Reed’s “Last Shot” is a painfully frank tribute to losing the lifestyle that so many of us lived when we were Immortal, Infertile, and Infallible. That’s right, we had the three “I”s going for us. That what does not kill us..

      Here goes:
      Alice Cooper, Shoe Salesman:

    Great show as usual! I’ve got a few suggestions for next time should any of them amuse you. A local guitarist, Jordan Martin, has written a piece I really dig called “Bleak Migration.” You should be able to find it here. http://jordanmartin.me/blog/?p=232

    I’d also love to hear John Zorn’s “Punk China Doll” from Naked City or perhaps “Vamos” from Surfer Rosa by the Pixies.

    Hi. I only request tings which I ahve never heard but am planning on buying from amazon. In the meantime I would like to hear Gong (an English Cantrbury group) and also open strings: middle eastern recordings of the 1920′s. Thank you donald

  • Philip

    Hey Paul, it’d be awesome if you could play some Diamanda Galás. She’s got an incredible voice, though very aggressive. Not sure what you would consider too loud for radio. Also have you ever played This Heat? One of my favorite tracks is Makeshift Swahili, but again, that might be too hardcore punk for your playlist.

    • Anonymous

      I love Diamanda, just gotta find the right track. I love This Heat, havent played them in a while. Its pretty intense to be sure.

  • Dwhynott

    I would like to hear Gong or open srtings:1920′s middle eastern music. Donald

  • Dwhynott

    I renewed my membership so I can hear more of the Paul Slavens show. Maybe some oil sheiks sitting in the Burj Khalifa will match my contribution. A request..

    great show Paul
    try http://www.amazon.com/Chestnut-Mare/dp/B00136LKTK
    by the Byrds

    “Chestnut Mare” was intended to be used during a scene in which the play’s eponymous hero attempts to catch and tame a wild horse, a scene that had featured a deer in Ibsen’s original
    play PEER GYNT so we go from Norway and a reindeer to somewhere in the West and a
    Chestnut Mare works for me.

    I second The Beatles request. Either or would be splendid. (or Tomorrow Never Knows)

    • Jerem69

      Indeed! The drums on that track are psychodelic!

  • Dkentbishop

    Father John Misty, fantastic show in Austin at Mohawk last weekend, last night of the tour . Night before at Sons of Hermann Hall. Check out the video for Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings, with Aubrey Plaza of Parks and Rec. The whole album is very intriguing. Hope I didn’t miss the requested song, was watching the finale of Game of Thrones.

    How about cueing up “Caligula” from Macy Gray’s “On How Life Is”. Turns me on more every time I hear it.
