The Paul Slavens Show: Live Blog for September 9, 2012

What a lovely relief from the heat! Hope you are enjoying this lovely evening and hopefully the music will add to your experience. This is where you can leave your suggestions for music to be played on next week’s show. Remember, make sure the lyrics are FCC clean, nothing too long or too loud or soft.  Thanks!

Leave a link to where the music can be found. Also, if I can’t find it for download, it is going to be very hard for me to play, unless I happen to have a copy.

    Good evening Mr. Slavens. It sure has been lovely this weekend. I recently got a job at local record store, and I have just been inundated with wonderful tunes. I’m going to recommend something that I can’t believe I’ve not heard until now.
    Paul McCartney – “Oo You”
    Thank you as always sir.

    Ferrante and Ticher. I heard it as ‘tie sure’ from my folks when they went to see them.

    Rick Wakeman last week. Hmm, Pat Moraz upcoming? Maybe a la Bill Bruford?

    Loved hearing Steam Powered Giraffe a few weeks ago. They’re playing with Marquis of Vaudeville on the 15th; could we maybe get a bit of either of them for folks who can’t make the show?

    band: REHA-billys song: **RATED PG**
    There a Japanese punk rock band. I think the name of the song is “RATED PG” or that might be the rating on the video I watched. I think you can get it off an mp3 site
