The Paul Slavens Show: July 8, 2012 Live Blog

An unusually blustery and gray day in North Texas. Got some interesting music for us to listen to, thanks to last week’s blog readers.

You can make next week wonderful by leaving your polite comments and music suggestions. I don’t usually play anything over six minutes long, and nothing too aggressively loud. As always, be kind and make sure the lyrics are all FCC compliant, for my sake. xo
