Arch City Radio Hour - Whiskey War Festival, Maness Brothers and Jack Grelle

This Arch City Radio Hour is dedicated to the Whiskey War Festival, a grass roots music festival in St. Charles that bridges the musical gap between the City and the County.  We'll talk to the founders of the festival the Maness Brothers, and to country artist Jack Grelle.  We'll also hear from a couple of the bands slated for the festival on Saturday June 29th, 2013 at VFW Post 2866 in Saint Charles.
