Hurricanes on the Radio 
Batten down the hatches, Matey
. We got a hurricane comin' through. February 26th on Hammered By The Blues (every Sunday on KOWZ 1170AM at 10pm) we will start off by blowin' the curls right out yer hair with the electrifyin' Texas gale force guitar of Roy Trevino off his self titled debut on the Troubador Records label 'Roy Trevino'. Now that you understand ya'll gotta hang onto somethin' bolted down, we turn loose Kay Kay & The Rays struttin' just like they can off 'The Best of Kay Kay & The Rays'. We send a shout out to the National Weather Service to inform them we actually intend to unleash the storm as Big Joe Shelton lets loose with straight line fury off 'Black Prairie Blues'. Just to put a little tornado circular motion on our tempest, we spin a generous portion of Papa Juke off their latest 'Out Of The Blues'. Hey did anyone else see Toto blowin' by? I'm pretty sure this ain't Kansas anymore!       

The force of the blues is surely hard to deny;
Altho the Grammy's keep givin' that a try; 
  True believers unnerstan' da facts and know da simple troot; 
The Blues is the mighty roots, all the rest is simply the fruit!
