We had a show full of great guests and music this week on The Northwest Georgia Music Hour! Brad Ray recently returned from a tour promoting his debut self-titled album. We enjoyed visiting with him and “pop” Doug Ray. Brad is also performing at a Toys for Tots Benefit Concert this Saturday in Rome. Listening to live music and helping kids have a great Christmas at the same time seems like a no-brainer to me!

Also in store for the weekend is the Rattling Gourds Art Festival in Summerville! It was great to visit with my long-time friend, Olivia Myers, and talk about who will be performing this year. Once again, a great weekend is in store for Rome and Northwest Georgia! Find out more about both events on MullinsMania.com. Here’s what we heard.

Dom Wier – I Like It Old School

Convertible Car Wash!

November 2, 2016

convertible-car-wash

Since it’s never going to rain again, Stu and I decided that it was high time to do one of our favorite things; test drive a convertible and take it through the car wash! Nothing beats getting doused with soap, pummeled by weighty materials, a refreshing downpour, and having our faces blown away by the intensified hair dryer. Before that, of course, we headed to the 95.7 The Ridge headquarters for The Northwest Georgia Music Hour. There we sampled brand new music from some of our favorite artists, and some classics from others. Here’s what we heard.

Today’s test theme song:
The Vaudlevillains – Minor Incovniences

Kira Annalise – Maybe You Won’t
Donny Hammonds – Only Heaven Knows
Winston Craig Wallin – My Old Guitar
Clay Broome – Bullet In My Head
Gene Brigham – Free
Thunderbolt Patterson – Willin’
The Strange – But I Do
Muletide Perkins Trio – Hubcap
