Well, I don’t know how to approach this other to say it’s been an awesome six-year run of Hammertime on Krater when Davey, Gregg, and Shawnee debuted their morning show on Tuesday, October 22, 2013. As all us fans have noticed, Davey D, the facilitator of the morning mayhem, has been absent from the air since the beginning of the month. All-hours deejay, Wayne Maria, has been filling in as the non-Hammer in the Hammertime Ohana. And this change will continue as Davey won’t be returning.
I don’t know the details, and really it’s “noneya.” Suffice it to say, it’s been a great, great run of Hammertime that’s evolved since day 1 and saw the OG trio bond and develop the show’s format. The early day’s staccato is now a harmonious flow. Even with the replayed content, the dialog, transitions, music, and yes, even those teasers, seem effortless and help us morning commuters keep our sanity with the hilarity. Everyday’s broadcast is similar but different, giving us listeners a calming regularity but with an anticipation of that laughable Hammertime moment. Yes, Hammertime will go on just with a new (and very capable) member.
If you want to remember how it all started for Davey, Gregg, and Shawnee, take a look back to October 2013 and listen to Hammertime’s five minute early launch.
