The Paul Slavens Show: Live Blog for Nov. 22

Hello everyone.
Still getting used to being in this new studio after all the years in the old one. Help me feel at home, won’t you?
Send me your polite comments and best of all your excellent suggestions for music that I should play and we should all be introduced to, or reminded of.
New to me this week: Carmen Consoli, Twilight Circus, … And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead and Elysian Fields.
