Hank Watson's Garage Hour - Cars, Trucks, Beers & Guns

Shooting from the hip never was better radio - great pile of gearhead goodness here, including tips and tricks for automotive detailing (with detailer - Mother's, Griot's, ECP, Glaze Distributing, and buying in bulk).  There's also a useful thought-piece on the proper storage of gasoline - with everyone putting it in garbage bags nowadays, we'd probably best notify Darwin.

More?  DetailGuide.com for cleaner cars, Armor-All for better or worse, turbo swaps for driveability, avoiding frozen garages (because water), earthquake weather, plus excellent industrial and electronica.

Toyota corporate gets out against electric cars while Joe Basement plays down for the "struggle" (ahem, dog whistle?), impossible physics of UFOs (transmedium, anyone?) and WW2 gerry cans, giant TV screens and hot ads add to distracted driving (thanks, Ford)...  Why not double down and throw hot peppers in your eyes, (Hell) spoken poetry, and polymathematical paws (now, with thumbs).  Because gearhead!

You're not going to repell firepower of this magnitude - from gearheads, cops, Jeepers and tops (not where they belong), it's the Garage Hour.

Put an ongoing gearhead and a retired agency guy on-air and there's no telling what will happen.  Drop them in a live setting (like Colorado's Trinity Brewing Company) and you'd better hide the cask.  Special guests include Tall Jon, First Jon and Clark's Beard.

This time, it was a grand pile of geek speak, with specialized weapons, gerry cans, the Dude Food Beta Kitchen (with panko, crumbles and phone), Forsaken Bacon, plus beers like Raspberry Kolsch, Cask Flo, Slapricot and Slap Yer Berry.

A little bit of everything in this one...  US taxpayers get screwed by big gov't contractors (as well as the supremacy of the B-1B, F-35 and F-22), turbocharger fixes for Subaru Legacy Outbacks and the EJ-255 (JB Weld!), how two-fisted royal Prince Phillip created his own hearse with a custom Land Rover pickup, how green energy is destroying Germany one industry at a time, and the mess that is illegal-immigrant coyotes driving like crazy people to escape the border patrol and local law enforcement.

There's more fun stuff:  peanut butter versus chocolate, wallet-sitting versus your income, and the schism between wanting a new (used) car and needing it.

One of those raining in the garadtch/lab in defilade/tech in freakout Garage Hour shows where an absolute pile of unthunk topics turn into really good gearhead radio.  Go figure: everything from the press-release media's attempts to paper over low repeat-purchase numbers for hybrids and electrics to great old parts boxes and what we find inside (inluding crashy bits from an otherwise great canyon run).  There's also kudos for the Japanese (that seems to be a theme lately) and a big raspberry for GM's plans to move another factory south of the border.

There's also a few little kitties on the run route (plus bears, elk and a bobcat), the finalé for the $500 commuter, plans for wintermobile # next, and our effort to get another Blue mic now that we found this Yeti.
