Extra Shot Of Bourbon, Fraser Sinkhole Edition -

Bourbon On The Rocks is back for December-29-2016 and Duke has a story to tell.

FACEBOOK decided to lock Duke out of his account for 24 hours for changing his password. What was life like with out it for a WHOLE DAY.

Also Debbie Reynolds passes away one day after her daughter Carrie Fisher passed away from a heart attack suffered on a plane on Dec 23rd. 2016 has been a horrible year for talented people passing away.

Plus the sinkhole in Fraser is slowly getting bigger and so is Joe Nichols head. Is it really fair that only media that Joe approves can be trusted on what is going on? You can bet Duke might have a different opinion.

This DAY IN HISTORY rounds this out so check out the latest Bourbon On The Rocks from FTR Radio.

Bourbon On The Rocks -

Bourbon On The Rocks is not a (JOE NICHOLS APPROVED) media show.

Duke is talking about George Michael kicking the bucket on CRHISTmas.

Also now that Fraser is in a waiting game for the sinkhole to open up how many city council meeting will Joe try to get in before the ( JOE NICHOLS APPROVED) media leaves town?

All this and of course THIS DAY IN HISTORY on BOTR on FTR
