Fresh Garage Hours and Assorted New Pretties: Coming Right Up.

It’s been tricky to keep the bloom on the rose.  The Garage Hour – in all its gearheadulous glory – turned five-years old in 2014, but had to leave AM radio shortly thereafter.  Damned white-collar tweakers.  Thankfully, our fans have stuck around, and the podcasts are going like ammunition after an...

THIS is Hank Watson’s Garage Hour – 50,000 watts of gearhead terror. We’re the talk radio blowtorch you know and love, bringing you cars, trucks, beers and guns since 2009, with the sliciest canyon carving, dirtiest off-roading, biggest calibers, hairiest sasquatches, loudest explosions, and the best kinds of smoking rubble.
