Well, are you thawed out yet?  What’s that?  You mean you aren’t watching the Super Bowl?  How refined of you.  I will play us some nice music to usher in the end of football season.

    I am here and ready to attend to your suggestions.

    Howdy Paul! I will always choose you over rich guys in tight shiny pants. Check out the Sun City Girls tune “Anvils Keep Falling On My Head.” Link: http://www.suncitygirls.com/radio/ They have posted a thoughtful collection of tunes for the uninitiated.

    I hate that clown too. Clowny Clown Clown produced by Barnes and Barnes of Fish Heads fame. Thanks Paul.

    How about anything by Killdozer.

  • JimJam

    Thanks for all the work you put into the show and making your playlists available to us!! We appreciate what you do!

    Since Valentine’s Day is coming up how about playing Lady Soul’s “Chain of Fools” for a fed up with your significant other song,or “Damaged” by Primal Scream off of Screamadelica is a great love lost song, too. For a happy love song how about Bjork’s “It’s So Quiet” or XTC’s “Mayor of Simpleton” in case you are doing a Valentine’s Day theme show. Harry Belafonte’s “Jump in the Line” is always good if you need something to get us dancing. Thanks!!
