This edition of "MIDWEST BEAT with Tom Lounges" features an interview with guitarist GREG MARTIN of THE KENTUCKY HEADHUNTERS about the group's career from 1969 to their newest 2022 release, "That's A Fact Jack!," from which some songs are played for Lakeshore listeners to enjoy.

The group's sound has evolved since the days of their first major hit, "Dumas Walker," but it's still very much got that Headhunter's vibe. Learn what's happened to the old Elvis Presley tour bus the band used to travel in, and hear about Greg's long running weekly radio program ("Lowdown Hoedown") and where you can listen to it every Monday
