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.

Located in the old Greyhound Bus station at 301 N. 4th Street, Blume is converting the space into a fully-functional craft brewery, while keeping some of the station aesthetic and artwork. He's in the discovery process of determining the palate of Paducah and aims to start with four beers, some seasonals, and eventually partnering with local restaurants. Hear the conversation:

[Slideshow] Puppies Sound Good: Meet Dallas and Fancy

Today we met two energetic boxer/terrier mix puppies on Sounds Good. Dallas (brown and white) and Fancy (black and white) are seven-week old brother and sisters who were rescued from a bad situation and are available for adoption at the Humane Society of Calloway County. You'd never guess they came into the world in a negative way because they are both very sweet, playful and friendly. Dallas was a little more energetic in the studio, but you can hear both of them contributing to the interview.
