    Something, anything?

    Hi Paul. How about Long John Baldry’s “In The Pines” There are two versions of this. Pick the one you like. Also Audience’s “I Put a Spell on You”. Few people know about Audience.

    • Jerem69

      Any LJB is great by me! I second the nomination.

    Loved the Joe Walsh…sometimes I wonder if you’re reading minds?? Hey, I was recently turned on to Sunday Actors a local “act” easily found on these internets. If you will check it out and play one, I think people will enjoy. I like many of the songs so I think you could probably pick any of them. Thank you kind sir. ( :

  • Gabriel Beddingfield

    I just got turned on to Sucre… check out “Chemical Reaction” and “Light Up.”

  • Hunter Hendrickson

    Would love to hear some Utopia. Perhaps Love in Action, maybe Bad Little Actress? Or really any Todd would be great.

  • Dallasjuan

    Casiotone Nation by Soul Coughing for next week sounds good.

  • Jerem69

    !!!. How’s about a subwoofer check?

    They’ve got many others but most are explicit or long-o-matic.

  • Jayclark1964

    Guided by Voices Fair Touching

  • Jerem69

    Bruce Springsteen’s latest music is repetitive and lacking in inspiration.
    Good Lord so willing, folk music will receive the resuscitation it so deserves.
    My obvsevation. Lots Of Love (LOL,)

  • Andrew

    Avi Buffalo – ‘What’s In It For?’

    2:54 – ‘Sugar’

    Seven Octaves -“Out of the Bluez”

    Engelbert Humperdinck – ‘Les Bicyclettes De Belsize’

  • Dcrenshaw

    Hi Paul, I was wondering if you would give me a little advice regarding the voice over industry. I want to pursue this career and wanted to be guided in the best direction. Can you refer me please to a company/school here in Dallas?

  • Knoxvilledangerous

    Have you ever heard of Armistice? They have a great song called City Lights Cry.
    Also, local acts like Sealion, The Phuss, and The Virgin Wolves are bringing rock very much back into DFW’s music scene, and I highly recommend all of them. Also, local chill acts like Simone Nicole, Ben Ernest Nelson, L. E. Taylor, and Baruch the Scribe all come highly recommended.
    Love the show. Great choice this week bringing back some Toots Hibbert.
