Sinfully Greasy on the Radio 
We don't serve whats good for ya, we serves up the stuff you can't resist
. February 27th on Hammered By The Blues  (every Sunday on KOWZ 1170AM at 10pm) we will lay sweet, fattening and decadent on yer ears. We start at the start of the buffet with Retro Deluxe as they prime yer palate with a few slices off 'Watermelon Tea'. Hittin' the main course with gusto, we lay a heepin' helpin' of Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings as they lay a little sizzle on yer platter off their latest 'I Learned The Hard Way'. We add a fresh side of Bob Dorr & The Blue Band off 'Blue Moon Honeymoon'. To properly garnish this repast we imported a fine Canadian aperitif from Milky Whites & The Bluesmen from their brand new CD 'One Direction'. As the tryptophan grabs you by the eyelids we roll out the desert cart chock full 'o goodies from Mark Rigg & The Big Rigg Band lovingly offered off the simply self titled 'Mark Rigg & The Big Rigg Band'. Umm, you already blew off yer New Years resolutions, right? You can start yer diet over again, I do it all the time!   
We got no guilt, we wanna enjoy the meal;
 There ain't no greens or even grapes to peel; 
We indulge in blues takin' as much as we can;   Leavin' smiles on every blues woman and man!
