Whiskey Shivers, Sandy Carson

FUN. That may be the best and simplest way to describe Friday's Sounds Good Live Lunch guests: Whiskey Shivers. Or maybe: "The best new bluegrass band out there," by way of the BBC.

Watch the live web stream!

WKMS has an exciting new line-up Sunday nights, including a new time-slot for Ted Radio Hour and a new program to the WKMS line-up, The Dinner Party Download. The fun starts this weekend! Here's the schedule:
