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.

It was 1987 when the Corps of Engineers formally recommended to Congress that a new dam be built near Olmsted, Illinois. The Olmsted Locks and Dam would replace old wicket dams between Paducah and Metropolis and between Joppa and Olmsted. It's a massive project in an erratically flowing river. The locks were finished long ago. Today, we get an update on the building of the dam and learn more about the controversial construction method being used for the dam, called "in-the-wet." Kate Lochte speaks with Olmsted Division Chief Mike Braden of the Louisville District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
