  C'Mon now; ya'll know variety is what makes smorgasbords special. It is one of the last bastions of approved over indulgence. November 14th on
Hammered By The Blues  (every Sunday on KOWZ 1170AM at 10pm) we will belly on up to the trough, devour all we can, and have no fear of gainin' any weight! The first course was imported from Canada as Sass Jordan rocks yer plate with selections off 'From Dusk To Dawn'. For those who desire a taste tempting souffle' that dances elegantly on your palate, the fabulous Alison Scott gently caresses with some beauty off 'Chinese Whispers'. Embracing the notion that you came here for the variety, we have Kirsten Thien servin' us somethin' you will want seconds of off her brand new CD 'Delicious'. For dessert we present a full calorie serving of Matt Schofield off 'Live From The Archive'. Please cleanse your palate with an appropriate beverage between courses and grab a fresh plate!
 When you drop by to visit, we lay out a spread; 
 It's our duty to make ya happy with ears well fed;
