Thom Watts

Thom Watts in the Morning is Thom's signature show and a Four States favorite! Leave behind your boring morning commute and crank up those old speakers to 11 (it's the only way to listen to truly great music)! Good music is timeless, so no matter how many decades Thom covers, the music hits just as hard as the day it was first released.
