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.

Autumn at LBL's Elk & Bison Prairie

As we move into fall it’s a good time to hear about the environment of the Elk & Bison Prairie and what the animals are doing now. We visit with Land Between the Lakes Wildlife Technician Curtis Fowler for an update on the animals in the preserve. The 700-acre enclosure is home to elk, bison, and several other animals with free-roaming access. Visitors can enjoy the area on a 3.5-mile loop road, with interpretive spots along the way to learn more about their ecosystem. Click here for more about the Elk & Bison Prairie.
