Sounds Good

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 Nina & The Pinta first mate Stephen Sanger tells Kate Lochte on Sounds Good what it’s like to sail a ship like Christopher Columbus did in advance of the ships docking for visitation at Green Turtle Bay Marina August 29 through September 8. The ships are true replicas of the originals that sailed the ocean blue in 1492. All are invited to visit the "sailing museums" for a walk-aboard, self-guided tour. Sanger also tells Kate why these ships are actually a little bit better to sleep on than the originals. See more about the event at Green Turtle Bay's Facebook page.

The extended, full version of the conversation

British animator David Firth has gained a large following and acclaim over the years on YouTube and the animation website Newgrounds for his darkly humorous and surreal work. WKMS Youth Reporter Kayla Eicholtz admires the artwork in his videos and was curious to find out more about his creative process, to learn that while some artwork may be strange and possibly even scary, the originality of the idea can be a determining factor in how interesting a piece of art is. She spoke with Firth over the phone, while he was on a trip through Europe seeking inspiration, in Switzerland at this particular moment.
