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.

The “Raisin”—short for the River Raisin that runs by the site—was the first national battlefield park devoted to the War of 1812. And it’s no Gettysburg, but rather a small patch of “brownfield” - ground contaminated by industry - south of Detroit. Thursday at 7 p.m. the McCracken County Public Library hosts author and historian Eddie Price for its Evenings Upstairs program - titled "Remember The Raisin!" Kentucky's Contribution in the War of 1812. Mr. Price joins Kate Lochte for a preview.

An advantage of our beautiful rural region is the limited brightness factor, so the night sky is far more enjoyable around here than in urban areas. LBL's Golden Pond Planetarium Manager Ross Workman describes the pleasure of viewing with Kate Lochte. West Kentucky Amateur Astronomers gather at the Golden Pond Observatory in Land Between the Lakes for an educational program about choosing and using binoculars and telescopes this Saturday, after the 5:30 pm Planetarium Show.
