New Years New on the Radio
 We are usin' our acoustic inside voice as we gently nurse yer hangover with elegant blues stylin's. January 2nd on Hammered By The Blues  (every Sunday on KOWZ 1170AM at 10pm) we start ministerin' this week with The Asylum Street Spankers as they display their pride and joy off their latest 'God's Favorite Band'. Takin' our outreach preach down the road, we jump on board with The Delta Flyers as they testify off 'Sixteen Bars'. To showcase the magnificence that is purely Midwestern, we ask Jeff Ray & Hurricane Harold to give us a witness off their self produced gem 'Carriage House Sessions'. John Lisi & Delta Funk wanna share what an honest little band out of 'Nawlins has to offer as they lay it out from the humbly titled 'Super Most Fantastic'. To cap off our little neuron stimulatin' love fest, we invite Jumpin' Juba to the mic to regale with a couple 'o great stories off 'Slap Happy'. We gots the cure for what ails ya, and we taste great too!
 If ya likes harp, quiet guitar and mandolin; 
 Hammered By The Blues welcomes ya in;
Our preachin' cuts thru the chaff  and the fetter;
We'll set yer spirit free and make ya feel better!
