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.

Environmental Technology Professor Finds Joy in Writing Detective Fiction

Steve Schneiderman teaches in the College of Science, Engineering and Technology at Murray State. In the wee hours of the morning he goes to his office for the solitude of after-hours and chuckles as he writes the continuing adventures of technically proficient but otherwise feckless detective Louie Leppedimay (a.k.a. Lippodoodle, Lippadoomie, and other similar attempts at the name). Schneiderman credits Mel Brooks as one of his inspirations.

TVA Hacking Program in 80's Results in Robust Eagle Populations in West Ky

Dr. Steve White joined Murray State University in 1981 about the same time as the local TVA hacking program was underway. Captive-born eaglets were released into the wild without human contact to repopulate the region whose habitat is preferred by eagles. Eagles stay where they learn to fly and today the resident population is stable and thriving. Dr. White gives the historical perspective.

This time we go to Nashville for a profile on an indie artist who was born in Murray, raised in Marshall County. Jordan Hamlin is multi-instrumentalist in Nashville's indie music scene.  She tours with Katie Herzig, Lucy Wainwright Roche, and others.

Laura and Lera on Puppies Sound Good

Two adorable terrier mixes, Laura and Lera came up to the station for Puppies Sound Good! Every second Wednesday of the month, Kathy Hodge of the Calloway County Humane Society brings up puppies looking for homes. This month: Laura and Lera, part of a litter of five girls, described as looking like a little bit of everything, but mostly terrier. They have big paws, so we think they'll grow up to be medium-sized adult dogs. If you are interested in adoption, please visit their website: www.humanesocietyofcallowaycounty.org.
