About The Show

The music on Sounds Good is a mix of legacy artists who are still making great music now (Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, Bonnie Raitt) deep cuts from classic artists (The Band, The Beatles, Grateful Dead, Talking Heads, REM) great contemporary artists who don' t receive commercial airplay (Neko Case, Wilco, Jack White, Darrell Scott, The Black Keys) and those who defy the boundaries of categorization (Punch Brothers, Bela Fleck, Ry Cooder, Bill Frisell, Justin Townes Earle). You'll also get a bit of World music, Blues, Soul/R&B, Reggae and Jazz.

Additionally, you'll hear interviews with newsmakers and community leaders, live music from some of our region's best musicians, our community events calendar and more.

MSU Theatre Presents "Dog Sees God" A Dark Satire Inspired by "Peanuts"

When CB's dog dies from rabies, he begins to question the existence of an afterlife. His sister has gone goth, his ex-girlfriend has been institutionalized., and his other friends are too inebriated to give him solace. Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion and sexual identity collide toward an ending that's both haunting and hopeful. Murray State Theatre's Daryl Phillipy joins Tracy Ross on Sounds Good to preview this weekend's mature-audiences production of Bert V. Royals' "Dog Sees God - Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead" - a parody inspired by the comic strip "Peanuts" by Charles Schulz.
