. We got a life changin' experience goin' on up in here. March 4th on Hammered By The Blues (every Sunday on KOWZ 1170AM at 10pm) we will be throwin' bones with the best of 'em as Lee Pons opens the spectacle with a little shameless 'blueshammer' plug in the form of 'Togged To The Bricks'. Knowin' whatever we gots brewin' in da pot, there has got to be a bunch 'o spices. Blues Leaf Records provides just that kind of variety off their sampler 'Leaflets Vol. II'. You may just be gettin' a little jiggy wit' it as we hook up with the stoop down man Chick Willis while he makes his case off 'Let The Blues Speak For Itself'.To set yer pire on fire we call on a band that is tighter than a tutu on a sumo wrestler, The Rusty Wright Band, to turn the place to ash with my favorite selection off 'LIVE Fire'. Bringin' it all home is the legendary Savoy Brown makin' the blind speak and the deaf see with a handful off their latest, 'Voodoo Moon'.Ohhhh, I can feel dat change a comin' on!       

Whether you be tall or short and fat or thin;
If you say yer prayers at night or indulge in sin; 
  Just embrace those mighty blues for what they can do for us; 
There's always room on board the Hammered By The Blues bus!
