Sounds Good

11 am - 1 pm Weekdays

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.

Puppies Sound Good: Meet Sugar

Sugar is a 10-month-old Poodle/Jack Russell Terrier mix up for adoption at the Humane Society of Calloway County. She's mostly white with brown ears and some brown patches on her tail. Even though she's part terrier and a puppy, she was very calm and sweet at WKMS, and was eager to meet all the staff and students that wanted to see her. Upon meeting Whitney, she climbed right into her lap and loved being petted on. Sugar had one previous owner, who could no longer afford to care for her. The Humane Society is seeking a loving and forever home for Sugar.
