Our host David Twichell welcomes Yvonne Smith, a certified hypnotherapist who has practiced since 1990, dealing mainly with victims of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD.

Today, she is regarded as one of the most respected practitioners in this field, a consultant for many documentaries on the subject, and a lecturer about it all over the world.

These guys got something special going on. Throwback to some early Black Sabbath and you'll get the idea. Rootsy. Bluesy. Real Detroit-y (I said it). Get with this if you like straight ahead rock without the glam. Hold the pretensions. Get down with Bison Machine.

Sonically challenging while spiritually liberating is no overstatement. Tune in tonight from 6 until 10 and see if you don't tune BACK in each and every Tuesday night.
