HMHS 132 - The Shocking Four Song Extravaganza

Shocking developments in the Home Made Hit Show this week as we make the radical decision to play four, YES FOUR !!!!, songs.

We are also pleased to announce a new song challenge. Dave chose the theme to be girls names. The main idea is for a girls name to be in the title, but other creative uses are acceptable. Get them in by thanksgiving is the “target” though not the rule. Please try and record a short or long song analysis to go with it.

This weeks INCREDIBLE, FOUR !!!!!! Songs:

Laurier Tiernan - I Pray That You're OK MySpace
Shaker Hood - Seniorita Do You Like My Gun
Michael Lyzenga - Old Mud River
Les Cotton - Going With The Flow lescotton.co.uk

This weeks show is a special one, a "live" show honoring the home made music of John "The Cracks" Tully. This is a genuine tribute to one of the most genuine people in the home made hit show world.

The show features appearances from "celebrities" and special guests. I'm not going to reveal too much here to keep it as a surprise.

Check out John's stuff.
