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.

Pruning during the dormant months is the most common practice, allowing plants ample opportunity to grow in the spring. Murray State Horticulture faculty member Pat Williams addresses pruning in the winter and what to do about ice-damaged trees in a workshop from 1 to 3 Saturday (February 15) afternoon at the Pullen Farm greenhouse at the Murray State Arboretum, on Hickory Drive, off Main Street.

Lt. Gov Jerry Abramson presented a draft of Governor Steve Beshear's proposed tax code changes to the House budget committee today, which was first announced by Beshear last week. The changes, if fully implemented, could raise an estimated $210 million annually by expanding the 6% sales tax to select services, an increased tax on cigarettes from 60 cents to $1 dollar per pack, and reducing tax breaks on pensions for people earning more than $80,000. On Sounds Good, Kate speaks with policy analyst and member of the Governor's Blue Ribbon Committee on tax reform, Jason Bailey about the events of the day.
