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.

Two well-published poets who both teach at The University of West Georgia near Atlanta, Chad Davidson and Gregory Fraser, give a reading of their works in Clara Eagle Gallery, starting at 6 p.m.Thursday. Then on Friday, they take the bull by the horns and offer two presentations about teaching and learning basic composition. Davidson and Fraser have co-authored two books: Writing Poetry: Creative and Critical Approaches and Analyze Anything: A Guide to Critical Reading and Writing. Kate Lochte wanted to learn more about how they approach teaching writing at the college level.

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.
