Sometimes ya just gotta toss caution to the wind and dance like no one can see ya
! August 14th on Hammered By The Blues  (every Sunday on KOWZ 1170AM at 10pm) we provide that inspiration to cast off yer chains of inhibition and have a real good time. We kick our roll with three Goddesses of Guitar steamin' up yer personal windscreen. Samantha Fish, Cassie Taylor and Dani Wilde headline Ruf Records Blues Caravan this year, collaboratively known as 'Girls With Guitars'. To keep yer backbone slippin', we embrace the Cuban rhythms, tempered by cool Canadian breezes of harpmaster Carlos Del Junco & The Blues Mongrels as they serve it up off their latest 'Mongrel Mash'. Bringin' homegrown goodness to the mix, we head to the Twin Cities to hook up with Paul Metsa & Sonny Earl as they tickle yer earbuds with a little sum sum off 'No Money Down'. To cap our adventure today, we turn to Watermelon Slim & Super Chikan as they spin tales of the blues life on the open road as only they can off 'Okiesippi Blues'. Yeah, you can count on us to speak yer language!  

Tho' the economy's shaky and things look bleak;
We jump in the music to find what we seek; 
  We embrace the positive and shine on the bad; 
Dancin' down the blues highway will make ya feel glad!
