Sounds Good

11 am - 1 pm Weekdays

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.

Author of "Black & White in a Multi-Colored America" Holds Book Signing at MSU

Monday, April 22, nurse Galileo Simmons is at a book-signing at Murray State University's Bookstore from 11 to 2. When she was 14, Galileo's mom, Freeda J. Simmons-McMillan said that Galileo would publish books, but would not necessarily have written them. When Freeda sustained fatal injuries in a freak car accident, Galileo resolved to publish the collection of her mother's journals about what she'd learned about people through her own nursing career. And so she has: Black & White in a Multi-Colored America Volume 1 is available now from West Bow Press. She spoke with Kate Lochte over the phone today on Sounds Good.
