Brutally Honest - LIVE - 05/20/13 Show Cancelled

I must regretfully announce that tonight's broadcast of Brutally Honest - LIVE has to be cancelled due to dangerous weather conditions in the Oklahoma City area.

I have been keeping in touch with RJ Evans, who has access to all of the weather-related feeds and he has been tracking a series of violent supercells headed towards the ShockNet Radio studio.  After viewing the radar information myself, I have to concur with his recommendation to cancel tonight's broadcast given the nature of these supercells and the potential damage they would cause not just studio but also to nearby utilities.  We cannot do a show without electricity, and we cannot guarantee this will be available to us this evening.

The studio will continue to play classic rock this evening as long as there is electricity, and, as far as we know, both the "Rock and Roll Diner" and "Hard Luck Chuck's Juke Joint" will be on at their respective normal time slots this week.

Brutally Honest - LIVE has every intention of being back on the air on Memorial Day at its normal time slot at 8pm ET, 7pm CT.  And hopefully the studio will not be transported to the land of Oz before then.

Again, we regret the cancellation, but the matter is out of our hands at this point.

Not a problem David and RJ - safety first! Having lived in the Midwest most of my life myself, you learn very quickly tornadoes and potential tornadoes are nothing to mess around with.

Hang in there and we'll see you next week! =)
