Boogie Voodoo on the Radio 
Grasp tight onto yer Gris Gris 'cause we gonna Bon Ton Roulet
! July 31st on Hammered By The Blues  (every Sunday on KOWZ 1170AM at 10pm) we are gonna toss all cares to the breezes and stroll down Bourbon Street to spend a little time with that wizard of the ebony & ivories, Lee Pons as he conjures up a 'Nawlin's blues spell off 'Big Boogie Voodoo'. While yer head is still spinnin' we find ourselves Mississippi bound to catch 2010 IBC winner Grady Champion as he dances you thru the corridors of yer mind with select tracks off his latest CD 'Dreamin'. Headin' ever further north, we wake up in 'Jersey and find Kimon & The Prophets 'splainin' the NJ swag off their brand new project 'Trenton Blues'. Feelin' the need for that fresh salt air, we conclude our adventure on a virtual sea cruise as we party our blues away as Tommy Castro presents a bunch of stellar talent off 'The Legendary Rhythm & Blues Revue-LIVE'. No worries, Thrillseekers; we'll drop ya'll back into the comfortin' arms of yer Barko-lounger when we're done wit' ya!  

With a journey of the mind you don't need a map;
It starts with serendipity and ends up with a nap; 
  You know we'll care for ya and pay the piper his dues; 
When ya take the trip called Hammered By The Blues!
