  Don't let the term fool ya. These keys are even more important than the major ones. July 25th on Hammered By The Blues  (every Sunday on KOWZ 1170AM at 10pm) we explore some of the notes that are the heart and soul of the blues. To start our romp thru 12 bar heaven we pick up what Teeny Tucker is layin' down off her brand new must have CD 'Keep The Blues Alive'. Now that we got yer flow goin', we join Laurie Morvan for a little stratisfaction off her 2010 Blues Foundation award winner (for best self produced CD), 'Fire It Up'. Then we be runnin' to the land of cheeseheads and packerbackers as we hook up with Hounds Tooth as they share their brand of have mercy off their latest 'Soul Rockin'. Grammy award winner Jose Alvarez is also in the house as he teams up with Los Blancos to share some jazzy sweetness wit' ya'll off 'Diggin' In'. We call on the master of the metal sandwich to drop the cherry on top 'o yer blues sundae. Curtis Blake both blows and sucks the very soul out of the Mississippi saxophone on his offering off 'LIVE at the Minnesota Music Cafe'. Don't be afraid to sing along!
 Age is just a number after all is said;  
  If yer feelin' aged the problem's in yer head;
Come try our cure, ya ain't got nothin' to lose; 
Take a deep breath and crank up those blues!
