    Hi Paul:
    I heard you have been away recovering from an illness. Please get well soon! My 93 year old grandfather most recently fell at home, and was in the hospital for a few days, listening to the Paul Berlin show still bring a smile to his face, whether is live or not, hearing the sound of your voice is a joy in itself. Hurry back soon. Thank you for all you do. Always remember the good ole Memphis days and well as Heavenly Houston.

    PS-Happy Belated Birthday!

    Dear Mr. Berlin,

    I just heard that today is your birthday from Dave Ward on Channel 13. Congratulations on many years of a wonderful life. I am the daughter of London England, a man you knew years ago through radio in the 60”s and 70”s. You judged the Junior Miss Pageant, and later the Houston”s Model Coed Pageant, both of which where I was a contestant. I had the wonderful opportunity of speaking with you one on one as I began my career, a career I was able to do all my working years as a vocalist . I am now 65 years old, and retired. You gave me wise advice. You said, if I ever stopped feeling the nerves before I went out on a stage, or stopped worrying about if I could deliver what was expected of me, it was time to quit. You told me that the difference between a professional and an amateur is that a professional gets nervous, but knows that they can deliver. An amateur hopes they can deliver. I always thought of this before I sang for any event. And I sang for two presidents of our country, a governor”s inaugural , and many other high profile events. Your advice has stayed with me all these years, and I pass it on to young singers who ask me for advice. Thank you for being accessible to those of us who were young and coming up in the music business. I am proud to say I have two daughters in the performing arts, and I have passed down your words of wisdom. God bless you for your kindness. I am so grateful that our paths crossed so many years ago. God bless you.
    Thank you,
    Judy England White

  4. Richard Hammond says:

    It was KQUE, NOT KRBE. I am sorry I got it wrong. But, I still miss not listening to you and your music everyday.
    since it’s your birthday I request YOUR VERSION OF ” Happy Birthday” and many more to the best DJ there ever has been.
    Richard Hammonf

  5. Judy Stepan says:

    Dear Paul Berlin. Happy Birthday. I called the station years ago and was able to talk with you about my attending your 20th birthday celebration. I thought it was your 21st birthday but you corrected me and said you were in the service at the time of your 21st. I have been a fan all these years and love to hear your stories about the people in show business. I also attended your “retirement” event on Beamer and gave you a copy of the Milby Plainsman with your picture in it. I mention this only to refresh your memory and say that I have been a fan for almost 65 years. I love listening to you and the music you play. I am hoping you will be “live” this Saturday, but no matter I will be listening. Many More!

  6. Joe Escalante, PAA says:

    Not knowing your current condition,I hope that you have moments of clarity where you can feel the love from your fans. Get those sweet granddaughter’s to help you tape just a small segment. Anyway, it still good to rehash “Postime”, the Charlie Schaefer last song, 88% of the time, ShamrocK Hilton & McCarthy, Old haunts & the old usual places, Memhpis history, Jazz, Shelley Berman from the Tidelands,Arnett Cobb,Dome Shadows, Steve Tyrell, South American Pan American connection. Must I continue. We love you Baby…

  7. Frank Barron Jr. says:

    Hello. Mr Berlin. I graduted from Sam Houston High School in 1970. I just have to tell you that I think you’re one of the best thing that is coming out of Houston,. We grew up listening to you when you were with 1230AM KNUZ radio station. I’ve had to retire. I had my 4th heart attack. So I thing it’s time to start taking it easy if I still want to continue seeing my grand-children grow up. Telling them stories of how it was growing up here in Houston, And than serving in the U.S. Marines Corps. I have no regrets. But now looking back I could have done better. And these days I enjoy listening to your station. I my start playing golf again. Thank you for reading this. And you take care of yourself And God bless you and your family.

  8. Brenda Hayden says:

  10. Hank Allers says:

    Dear Paul, I’m a fan of yours since coming to Houston @ UH in 1961. You are the best host EVER. No one has your knowledge and ability to present the artists. You make their recording come alive artistically and historically. It’s wonderful to hear you again, Paul. Blessings to you old friend. Hank

  11. brother Peter says:

    please, what version of Cuando Caliente Sol do you lay – I have tried but just can’t find the exact version – thanks, Paul, and Bless you sir!

  12. Bailey says:

    Hi Paul. I am really happy you are do well. I was just reminiscing about the Dome Shadows days and found a web page dedicated to it. Thought about you, and Vicky, and so many others. I posted the link below. Take care, and hang in there old friend. I hope we get a chance to meet and have a visit again someday soon.

    All my best: Bailey

    Paul I went to VFW Hall July 4 when Jivin Gene Bourgeis was performing his 50′s music. One of my fav of his was Going Out With The Tide. Do you happen to have it for play? Again, thank you for all the good music as well as great entertainment. ♥

  20. jim peiffer says:

    Paul did a ad for Hub Hundai where they offered a gas card for visiting and driving a Hyundai. I did that last week and may consider o n e the next time I buy. When I asked about the gas card no one new anything. That promised to check and call in a day but so far nothing. Did I hear incorrectly?

  21. SUSAN GOODWIN says:

  22. George Cowart says:

    I live in Beaumont and I’m not current on Paul’s health. I hope sincerely that he’s doing well. Has he been off the air since May?

  23. Joe Cashiola says:

    Paul,
    I go back with you to the Mission In Music days. In the late fifties you came to Germany with a USO Show, played the latest hits, the only one I rember was Peggy Lees ‘Fever”. After the how you talked to Houston boys until the club closed, thanks it was a great eveing. By the way you bought all the drinks.

  24. Joe Escalante, PAA says:

    Howdy,
    Picked up an old Sinatra album today at an estate sale on Kipling. I love those old Capitol album covers. This one has a sticker from Paul Berlin’s Record Room on W. Holcombe. Man, is there anything in the record business you haven’t done? Really enjoy listening to you every Saturday evening. Woweee!

  25. DONALD HARRELL says:

    Thank you Paul for so many years of great music. I learned so much about the music and the artist by listening to you.

    Paul

    Hope you are feeling well
    Thank you for your great show every Saturday.
    Brings back memories of KQUE, and the good music
    you played then and thanks again for playing it again
    on KSEV.
    Besides we really enjoy all the bits of information
    about the artists and history in general.
    Please play some of Karen Carpenter.
    Stay well and keep up the good work.
    Your faithful listeners
    Gunter and Monique
    Houston

  29. Jon Schwartz says:

    Love hearing the oldies, but especially the rare oldies like that Phil Harris ditty you played
    on the 5-3-14 show. Would you play THE HANGING TREE x Marty Robbins: A great
    tune from an underrated Gary Cooper western?

  30. Gary & Vicki Cofer says:

    Hi Paul. We hope you’re doing OK. We love hearing the ‘re-runs’ but we worry about you when you’re not broadcasting live. Please take your time, as long as it takes for you to get in A-1 condition, then make a triumphant return to the air. Love and prayers always, Gary & Vicki Cofer.

  31. Jeanie Phillips says:

    Are you on vacation?Been missing your live broadcasts.Hope everything is ok.Long time listener.Jeanie, from La Porte.

  34. Lisa Hammonds says:

    Hello my friend,

    Just wanted to let you know how very much I enjoy your program. I listen to it on my phone and bluetooth anywhere I go. It’s the greatest thing since sliced bread!!!

    I’m at my desk right this minute getting my tax paperwork in order (yuck). The music and your voice makes the stress just melt. I hear your voice Mr. Berlin and I say to myself….everything is going to be just dandy!

    Thank you so very much,

    Your faithful fan in Katy Texas.

    Lisa Hammonds

  35. balin" says:

    Having listened for twenty five years I wish you had the noon hour. Love your show!

  36. Connie Maxfield says:

    Hi Paul,
    Could you suggest a record collector or place that might be interested in many jazz and big band albums from the 1930′s – 1950′s or so.
    Thanks for any help you can offer.
    Best wishes,
    Connie

  37. Mike says:

    Paul:
    Please play that “Chew, chew, choon gum” song. Every time you played that song I COULDN’T GET IT OUT OF MY MIND FOR A WEEK!!!
    Mike in Kingwood

  38. Gary & Vicki Cofer says:

    Hi Paul. We were wondering if it would be possible for you to host a benefit that would raise funds for a worthy cause, like M. D. Anderson cancer research, or for wounded veterans, or for any one of a hundred other deserving groups or organizations. You have a legion of adoring fans who would buy a ticket to hear you in person talk for forty-five minutes or an hour just the way you talk on your broadcasts. It would be such an honor to get to listen and applaud. I have a feeling that your appearance would fill any venue in Houston. Well, maybe not Reliant or Minute Maid, but somewhere like Jones Hall or Hofheinz Pavillion. Maybe it could be on a Sat. evening and it would be a remote broadcast during your regular program time slot. Oh well, just something to think about. Sincerely, Gary and Vicki Cofer.

  39. Roger says:

    your show is great but why does the podcast keep turning off this week? Keep spinning the good tunes.

  40. Suzy says:

    Heo Mr Berin, I’m wondering if you remember the Nick and Connie show KNUZ, my dad was Nick, or anyone out there? I would love to here any old stories from the people who knew my dad.
    Suzy

  41. Kevin Sullivan says:

    Sitting here listening to Leslie Gore Sing “It’s My Party.”
    Several tunes earlier, Mr. B., you’d played Bryan Ferry’s wonderfully bouncy version of “Just the Way You Look Tonight” (one of my fav’s, Thanks).

    It just so happens that Mr. Ferry also recorded a version of “It’s My Party” — takes a bit of gumption for a dude to take a crack at that one, huh?
    On the very same CD/Album, he also does his version of the Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy for the Devil” — I kid you not.
    Best of all, the name of this eclectic collection is (I really couldn’t have made this up!!) “These Foolish Things.”

    You’re the best, good sir. Be well.

  42. Bill Hood says:

    Please Play Louise Tucker Midnight Blue If Have It
    Sincerely Yours

  43. JoJo Finkeldei says:

    Hi Paul. I used to work with you at Clear Channel. I was the HR Manager. Just thinking of you and wondering how you are. Great to hear you on the air!!
    JoJo

  44. Freddie Hugo says:

    Where can I find a copy of two these two songs: Phone call from God and Phone call from the devil. I believe they are sung by Jim Nesbitt. Thanks so much.

  45. Pierre Bonappettit says:

    You mentioned the Gone With The Wind shot looking out over the wounded.Many of the wounded soldiers were just fake dummies with strings to move the arms in the air like they were asking for help.Re:the making of gone with the wind movie.

  46. Dave Brown says:

    Paul, as a native Houstonian, may I say You are the greatest radio personality of all time! Keep on keeping on. May God bless you and yours!

  47. j baumann says:

    Paul Berlin been my hero for over 50 years. Good show, good stories. Good memories gone with the wind, but still sweet. Thanks KSEV and the ever green disk jockey.

  48. George Miller says:

    Paul, ENJOY your show every chance I get, takes me back! Heard your request from Ms. Kaufman from Riverside Ill. I was born and raised there ( a lifetime of memories. Myself and partner owned a the Riverside News Agency (distributor for all major newspapers)for 20 + years. Riverside was an affluent retreat west of Chicago and Cicero on the Burlington Northern RR. It was home to many syndicate (called then),car dealers and baseball team owners (Comisky / White Sox and car dealers. It was planned by Frederick Law Olmstead with a river bordering, huge parks and gas street light. Actually The Woodlands has copied many of its attributes. Keep up the GREAT show. Thank you, George Miller

  49. Peter says:

    are you aware that Gary Hoffman is now a hospice patient – is at home and probably listening to you

  50. Jeanie Phillips says:

    Please play “Touched” by the Stellar Unit and Charlie Schafer.
    Jeanie in La Porte.

  51. Gary & Vicki Cofer says:

    Hi Paul. What movies have you appeared in, and who were the stars in those movies? We love the music, love the stories. We hope you live ‘forever’! Gary & Vicki Cofer.

  52. Kitty Cisneros says:

    Paul, Occasionally you play a song that I dearly love by Joe Tiffe (don’t know if I heard right on the spelling). I have been trying google music by him to purchase. Not sure but I believe the name of the song that you play is All I Have To Give. It is a beautiful song.

  53. cynthia mullino says:

    on the internet reply form it asks for mail address, guess they don’t mean physical address! Oh, well, technology. I started listening to your program with the transistor under my pillow.
    I hear commercials and movies using the music you taught us to appreciate. The young folks think Dean and Frank are new-comers! Don’t even mention Hoagy Charmichael. I got everything I could from some internet site!
    Keep on playing the greats!
    So glad you are doing well.
    God Bless you.

  54. Jay Catherwood says:

    How about playing “Stealing from Chet”?

    Maybe “Broomstick Cowboy” Bobby Goldsboro and “I Need to be in Love” Karen Carpenter.

    Also please shout out an anti smoking comment once in a while. Let people remember what you went through and how hard it was to quit. Too many people still light up!

    Jay

  55. Gunter & Monique Faig says:

    Paul.
    Hope you are doing ok,
    Thank you for the great job you are doing on your show
    every Saturday. You are a Bastion of Radio as we know it
    bringing back memories of the KQ time when we had the Radio
    on all day listening to great music. The same you are playing every Saturday now. It is sad to say that a City the size of Houston is unable to produce a Radio Station
    that plays music like you are presenting.
    Keep up the great work and thank KSEV for us.
    Please play the song of Dusty Springfield “Windmills of your Mind”.
    Sincerely
    Gunter & Monique
    PS Hello from Boby Gonzales

  56. Roger Scott says:

    Hey Paul, you mentioned KILT and KNUZ and I’m sure you remember when KILT first came on the air. There was a big hoopla over it and sadly some of us KNUZ listeners did try them out. Can you tell me when they came on the air for the first time??? I lived in Tomball; my brother and I got new twin beds with the bookcase headboards. Then I got a clock radio with the 2 big dials and would listen to you after lights out and then some of KILT. I think it was mid 50s. Thanks for being there. You are the only show worth listening to on the radio….
    Roger Scott

  57. Peter says:

    oh, is it too late to fit in ‘Cuando Caliente Sol Aqui en la Playa?

  58. Peter says:

    heard Steve Lawrence – didn’t think it was he, deep pipes missing – I was listening, thought it resembled him – actually was wishing to hear him instead of that guy, then you say it WAS him – what happened, finally get old? – he always had the best voice (my favorite) with Nat King Cole and Sammy Davis right behind – love you, Paul – miss the days of every day at KNUZ and KQUE – hope you will be at the upcoming ‘reunion’ – Bless you sir

  59. Suza says:

    Possibly play “Somewhere across the sea, my love is waiting for me….”

  60. R. W. Cavenaugh says:

    Hello Paul,

    Somehow you seem an old friend. I remember being so pleased when you returned to the air on KSEV.

    This evening My mind pulled up some additional words to the closing song:
    “I’ll be seeing you in all the old familiar places
    That my heart embraces all day through.
    In that small cafe, the park across the way,
    The children’s carousel, the goldfish pond, the wishing well” I think it’s a World War I song.

    Your program trumps other home electronic entertainment every Saturday evening in our household. Many thanks.

    Regards,
    R.W.Cavenaugh,, Cypress, TX

  61. Gordon Locke says:

    Paul
    Just located you surfing the internet.
    I grew up listening to you as a teenager growing up in Houston. 1954-55 when you were sponsored by Rex The Tailor.
    I remember (can’t spell it) you said Mashugada Rex.
    Bob Byron came on later and his theme song was Its A Lonesome Old Town. I can still hear it nearly 60 years later.Do you know the artist or band that played his theme song?
    Best wishes to you and yours so many good memories of you back then.We moved away from Houston in 1958 to Central Texas and been here ever since.

  64. Leroi says:

    last week you played Elvira which has the romantic lyrice: papa oom papa oom mow mow.

    If you think your audience can stand it without massive heart failure from the excitement, how about playing The Rivingtons Papa Oom Mow Mow.

  65. trey magee says:

    Paul,
    can you play a Sinatra song for your old bellaire bowling palace buddy Fred Magee who is turning 77 this week
    thanks
    Trey

    • Fred Magee says:

      Paul,

      Enjoyed my birthday acknowledgment from you Saturday. We’ve had some great times over the years and the song bought back some great memories. Hope you are doing well. Call me if you can go to lunch.

      Fred

  66. Ron Bonnel says:

    Hi Paul, Would you please play – ” The Third Man Theme “, by Anton Karas or ” There’s No Tomorrow ” by Tony Martin; both from the year 1950 ? I have been listening to you since 1950 and there is no one on the air today that has the knowledge of true music that you do. It is always a pleasure to hear your program, keep up the good work and we shall continue to pray for your health.
    Thanks again – - -

  67. jerry says:

    Paul,I was just going through my stacks of old vinyl and came across my very worn copy of what I consider the best album Patti Page ever recorded. ‘Patti Page The West Side’. Wonder if you would have Gone With The Wind or They All Laughed from that album and give it a play. I am wishing now that I had taken better care of the albums I bought 50 years ago. Tks

    jerry

  68. Joe Bhonn says:

    Paul, you are what listening to the radio is all about. Your program brings back wonderful memories and I thank you. If you could play “Morning” and “Three Bells” by Jim Ed Brown and the Browns,

  69. Azle Anderson says:

    Hi Paul,

    Can you play “THEM THERE EYES” – my favorite version is sung by Anita O’Day.
    My girlfriend tells me there is a connection here to “Sweet Georgia Brown”? Not so sure.

    We just love listening to you across the Gulf to Florida! Love your show so much.

    Azle Anderson

  70. Larry Hornborok says:

    I am trying to find the artist and lyrics to a song from the late 1940′s or early 1950′s. I think the song title is “Oh! Yeah.” It is a him & her song. He starts with “I ask her for a date. She says its getting late. I ask her for a kiss. And then she gives me this.” Her “I’ll never ever kiss you by the gate.” Him “Oh Yeah!” Her “At least until we’ve had our second date.” Him: “Oh Yeah!” Can you help?

  71. Steve Morby says:

    Paul, I have intended to write you several times but never got around to it. I am 60 years old and grew up listening to your show as my Mom had her radio on daily. We moved to Tyler in 1967 but I returned to Houston in 1975 and resumed listening to you on my own on KQUE.

    I play the piano by ear and play weekly at 3 different elder care facilities. Much of my repertoire came from the music you played, from Doris Day, Dean Martin, Rosemary Clooney, etc. I, of course loved Rock n Roll from the 60′s but the classic music of the 40′s and 50′s are a real favorite.

    Anyway, I wanted you to know that I credit both my Mom and you for the pleasure these songs bring to the residents of these facilities. And, they bring me great pleasure as well.

    Anyway, thanks a million. Oh, and my Mom tells the same Berlin joke every time I mention your name….you know, the song about the Wild Goose and the proctologist gone crazy?
    She loves telling that

    Best regards and still a fan

    Steve Morby

    • Peter says:

      do you ever play in the lobby of MD Anderson? – oh, and what about the Paul’s joke about the first girl to swim the English Channel, how she had tried several times and once was so close that she could see the beach, but knew she couldn’t make it so she turned around and swam back – Bless you for entertaining at old folks homs, oh, ever play at University Place?

  72. Alan Gilchrist says:

    Just heard of the passing of Phil Everly on your program, last weekend. Sad to hear. And this on the heels of losing Eydie Gorme, last year. Not ready to see these people leave us, but we’re not spring chickens, anymore, either. Been keeping tabs on you since I came to Houston in ’74, and left for Denver in ’79, but was saddened to hear of the loss of KQUE, while I was gone. But I looked for you, when we returned to Houston in ’83, and was happy to find your archives available here on KSEV radio. KQUE was the only station I listened to ‘way back then. You were the one who introduced me to the likes of Nana Mouskouri, the Stellar Unit, Charlie Shaeffer, and others… I always enjoyed your shows. Many times, such radio formats as KQUE always seemed to fall victim to advertising trying to target the aging segment of the listening audience, and I tired of all that, really quick. You always kept that in check, though, so that was the reason I could always listen to your shows. But I was always hoping KQUE would go to streaming on the web, so I could tune in from Denver area, but it wasn’t to be. But it does help, that you did not turn out to pasture, and still bring your good music to your audience. Hope things continue to go well for you, but I realize that none of us live forever. So do take care, Paul Berlin, we’re not ready to lose you, either….

  73. Jon Schwartz says:

    Especially enjoy hearing you play the early ’50s country recordings like FLYIN’ TOO HIGH
    FOR MY LITTLE OL’ SKY, PEACE IN THE VALLEY (Red Foley) etc. and the back stories that
    accompany them. Also, the Elvis recording that he made for his mom’s birthday, some-
    thing you don’t hear even on the satellite stations. You’re at the top of your game, pal,
    a game that includes the likes of Jonathan Schwartz (no relation) out of NYC and Chuck
    Cecil out of LA. Long may you guys wave…

  74. Jim Medlin says:

    Thanks again Paul for another couple of hours of memories.

    Hey Paul Berlin, you’re thinking of the Kennedy Center Honors relative to Doris Day, not Smithsonian. Interesting though that she turned it down. She’s in her 90′s, so I doubt we’ll see her in public again. Anyway, it was her business manager/accountant who siphoned off a lot of her wealth. She sued and eventually won, but still lost a lot.
    I enjoy your show.

    Dear Paul,

    I dusted off some old 33 1/3 LPs, and among them- – some Barbra Streisand. Yes, my old turntable still works! Don’t hear much of her stuff anymore, but I had to chuckle at “Second Hand Rose”. Do you have it?

    You’re the BEST!

  78. Gary & Vicki Cofer says:

    Hi Paul. Do you have ‘Trickle Trickle’ by the Manhattan Transfer? Any song by them would be great to hear. Thanks. Gary Cofer.

  79. Billy & Barb Webb says:

    We are sending our Seattle Seahawks to the Super Bowl in New York next weekend. Have’nt had so much fun since George Blanda and the Oilers.

    Play some more Etta James for us.

  80. Jon Schwartz says:

    Any personal Jackie Wilson stories? Would you kindly play NIGHT? It’s always a
    big pleasure listening and re-listening to your shows.

  81. David "The Snake" says:

    Thanks for the good days as well as the bad days. You made all of them better.

  82. Cece Waldner Abel says:

    Paul,
    Are you the same Paul Berlin who used to DJ the Mt. Carmel Saturday night dances in the 1960s???? I’m sure you won’t remember me, Cece Waldner. I was on the dance committee and came to KNUZ to visit you a couple of times. You knew my uncle from Memphis; Gene Hoehle.
    We are planning our Mt. Carmel Class of 1964 50th class reunion on June 7th in Pearland and are wondering if you’d like to be out guest.
    If we’ve been out of high school for 50 years, you must surely be in your eighties or nineties……….GOD LOVE YA! If you could email me at the address provided, I would be thrilled to hear from you —- either way!
    Thanks so much. I look forward to hearing from you.

  83. Ruby Carpenter says:

    Paul – I listened to you from back in early 50′s. You make Saturday evening special for me. You play songs I have forgotten but love, especially Brook Benton and Dina Washington, also the Hawaiian music. There was a radio program back during war years called “Hawaii Calls” and was great music from there. I love all the music you play. Keep up the good work and stay well.
    God Bless, Ruby

  84. Roger Scott says:

    PAUL!?!?!? You just signed off with a different theme. What happened to Charlie and his nimble fingers???? I’m so sad. That’s one of the best songs you play. That little “happy trails” medley is good, but not as good as “I’ll be seeing you” and “we’ll meet again”…. please bring it back…. I only caught the last 20 mins of the show, so you may have mentioned a reason for the change so I’ll catch the whole show when it comes back in the archives. Keep up the good work and thanks for being there… Rog

  85. Mike W. says:

    Mr Berlin, as you were remembering those moments with your mother, I was reading a note from mine. She too is gone but not forgotten.

    They only allowed tv on weekends. So I learned to love the music they played on the stereo (KQUE), which happens to be what you play now. Many thanks

  86. Sally Williams says:

    Just wanted you to know that every New Year’s when I watch the Vienna Philharmonic broadcast I remember that you watch it to.
    Hope you are well and will consider coming to the reunion in May.

  87. Myrtle White says:

    Paul, tonight you played an instrumental you called “Lapland”. That is also the melody to a southern gospel song called “Just Over In Glory land.” Thought you might like to know.

  88. Ms Gerry McElhannon says:

    I listened you and Larry Kane when you were on KNUZ at Caroline & Blodgett, back in the wonderful 50′s.

    The 40′s music is still my favorite including Sammy Kaye’s Blue Prelude.

    Thanks for the memories Mr Berlin,

    Gerry
