      how about it

  • Maully

    Hey Paul!

    Thanks for the song Death of the Cog, it was good. I enjoyed it but I’m afraid the artist was wrong. The artist was The Cog is Dead. I’m sorry… I should have been specific on a song by Steam Powered Giraffe. My bad.

    • Anonymous

      I wondered about that. its said on my setlist that it was The Cog is Dead, but I thought it was a misprint. Sorry I disseminated incorrect info. I will flog myself.

      Do you know of Jon Anderson’s Olias of Sunhillow?

      • Anonymous

        I do indeed, I am not sure if it is available in download though, I will check.

      • Paul Muller

        ‘Olias of Sunhillow’ is a wonderful Album from 1976. I own the CD. Jon Anderson (Lead Singer of Yes) spent some years learning numerous instruments, and supposedly plays all instruments on the Album. However, some say that Vangelis contributed in large measure.

    My new to me suggestion this was going to be Lamb; but someone beat me to it! Way cool to turn on the radio and be “wowed” Thanks Mr. Paul!

    • Anonymous

      well, suggest something else !!

      • PeterJ

        Well I did find this electronica artist Royksopp (there’s an umlaut over the first o but I still have no idea how to say it) while searching the Bobby Vinton song. This has a sample of Vnton’s Blue on Blue, but this is definitely something I will need to look into further.

    I just discovered the KXT 91.7 ‘listen live’ link. You might want to promote this link, so that friends and family of your DFW listeners, who live out of town, can listen to your show as well.

    Thanks for all the time and effort you put into your show!
