Ways to Connect

Come have fun with us at the WKMS Storytelling Contest Finals at Hopkinsville Brewing Company on Thursday, October 26th.

 Starting at 6 p.m., we'll have the best readers from this year's post-apocalyptic-themed contest, along with music from singer-songwriter Fate McAfee, and some WKMS mad-libs of your own to try.  All are welcome to this free event as part of Hopkinsville's Big Read. Hope to see you there! 

The weekend is around the corner! Time to relax, turn on your radio or maybe put on a good record.... What?! You don't have a record player?

This weekend is a great time to give to WKMS.

Join us for our next WKMS Book Club meeting! We're reading "Hillbilly Elegy" by J.D. Vance. The memoir tells the story of Vance's journey from young, troubled boy to graduate of Yale Law School.  The book club meets at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 12 at WKMS Studios, on the 8th floor of the Price Doyle Fine Arts Building in Murray. If you have any questions or want directions call 1-800-599-4737.

The WKMS Book Club is back and we’re reading Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly. It’s the story of the black female mathematicians who helped win the space race.

It’s an hour of comradery, cookies, and great conversation. All book, movie and history lovers are welcome. Find more information about the event on our Facebook page. Hope to see you there!

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 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:
