Here is the recap of the February 11 edition of 105.9 Qwik-Rock's weekly local music program, "The Homegrown Rocker," which airs every Sunday night from 8 to 10 PM on Lion Country's Rock Station, 105.9 Qwik-Rock. The show can also be streamed via Qwik's website, www.1059qwikrock.com.
This week, we returned to the mailboxes to check out new recordings that have arrived lately. As a result, we debuted lots of new music on the program, including tunes from Dylan Miller, The Roof, Honeydiu, Phobos Anomaly, Nothingmen, One Adam 12, Hate Grenade, Master Sword, Dragline, X's For Eyes and Ember's Fall. We also dug a 1997 song by Four On The Floor from the archive for this week's "Local Music Flashback," and stepped "Across State Lines" to hear music from New York City lady blues rockers Jane Lee Hooker!
