In some cases, distractions come as an irriatation. Other times they are welcome respite from a cruel world
! September 25th on Hammered By The Blues  (every Sunday on KOWZ 1170AM at 10pm) we will command your attention and take you on a musically surgical adventure thru the backroads of yer id. We'll pry open yer skull with some razor sharp George Thorogood as he slides thru a tribute to his Chess Records blues heroes off his new CD '2120 South Michigan Avenue'. To sift thru all that stuff ya'll got goin' on in there, we need ya calm. We call on Jackie Johnson to apply a little soothing R&B off her latest 'Memphis Jewel'. Getting down to the spots we need to work on The Jeff Golub Band lays a little familiarity on ya with their tribute to blues royalty entitled 'The Three Kings'. Feeling like we need to provide a healthy dose of stimulation, we turn JP Soars loose in yer head to shake things up with a little rockin' madness off 'More Bees With Honey'. Now that we've gotten down to the nitty gritty, to bring our treatment plan to a spiritual conclusion, we allow the raw and righteous Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band take you back home with a couple simple ditties off their tribute to Charlie Patton entitled 'Peyton on Patton'. We may not cure what ails ya today, but I guarantee you will never be distracted the same way again!      

Now we may not be doctors but we do operate;
We toss care to the wind and embrace our fate; 
  We hope for all the time in the world before we go into the night; 
But 'right now' is all the time ya need if'n ya learn to live right!
