The Paul Slavens Show: Live Blog May 13, 2012

Well, the weather just keeps getting more beautiful all the time. I have an interesting collection of pieces for us to check out tonite, mostly suggestions from last week’s blog. Help make next week’s show by leaving me your music suggestions. Please nothing over six minutes long, too loud or quiet. And especially make very sure the language is acceptable. I find something almost every week in the suggestions that I can’t play because of language.
