I'm all about our crop of talent we have here in West Texas and since it costs lots of money to get into the studio to record an album, I decided to give them an outlet for their music for free. Rock 108's "Local Licks Live" features the great area musicians we have here. Some rock hard, some rock with a little twang, some throw down in a variety of ways...but they all kick ass in my book!

You can catch Local Licks Live every Thursday at 2pm with yours truly on Rock 108.

Here are some tunes from the Abilene band Aces Over Eights on a recent visit to the Rock 108 studios, including a cover of Gangsta's Paradise (original by Coolio) and 3 originals.
