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 Flo

Today we met Flo, an eight-week old border collie mix. She's all black and has long, fluffy fur. Flo was very sweet and sleepy, in Kathy Hodge's arms and in the studio, too.  She and her brother and sister are all up for adoption at the Humane Society of Calloway County. Kathy says she'll grow up to be a mid-sized dog when fully grown.

See Flo on Petfinder.
