Bourbon On The Rocks.. St. Valentine Was Murdered Edition -


Bourbon On The Rocks for Tuesday February-14-2017 celebrates St. Valentines Day the only way Duke knows how… welcoming BASEBALL BACK.

*The Detroit Tigers pitcher and catchers report in Lakeland, Florida today which means that BASEBALL is right around the corner and politics can suck it once again in the summer.

*Here in southeast Michigan back in the day ( The 80’s) a well known case of dealing drugs was tried a long time ago involving White Boy Rick. WBR is serving a life sentence for dealing and today he has a PAROLE BOARD hearing. Should he be released? Should we be locking people up that commit non violent crimes for life? Duke chimes in.

*President Trump’s national security adviser Lt General Michael Flynn bites the dust less than a month into the job. What is the bigger mess up? Talking to the Ruskies before you assume your job or LYING TO THE V.P. afterwards about it?

All this plus THIS DAY IN HISTORY on the best Bourbon On The Rocks EVER. At least until tomorrow’s show.

Bourbon On The Rocks for Friday February-3-2017 takes on a different VIEW from some of the stuff Duke usually talks about.

Bourbon On The Rocks -

Bourbon On The Rocks for the last day of January in the year 2017 tackles why the county is about ready to riot.

Ben Affleck as Batman.

*First off President Donald trump FIRES acting Attorney General SALLY YATES for not acting like a A.G. Will the 46th POUTS decision to fire Sally Yates affect the executive order he signed on Friday?

*Also why are we allowing protest to occur at the nations airports and BLOCK those arriving and leaving certain destinations? Does that make any sense?

*The Hamlet has a CITY HALL meeting tonight that no one who is a elected official in Fraser will get paid to attend. Will miracles never cease?

*Also the real reason the country is on edge….Ben Affleck will STILL play Batman but wont direct the upcoming film THE BATMAN. Duke plays a clip from the last time Affleck donned the hood in FIVE different languages to show why…..Affleck is just a joker and not BATMAN.

All this and MORE plus THIS DAY IN HISTORY all on BORE on FTR.
