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.

Public Innovator Rich Harwood Brings Reclaiming Main Street Campaign to Murray

Rich Harwood is the founder and president of the Harwood Institute for Public Innovation, based in Bethesda, Maryland. That's a nonprofit group that facilitates community discussions, like the one he participated in with the community of Newtown, Connecticut deliberating on what should be done with the school after the shooting of children at Sandy Hook Elementary.

He's also the author of a number of books, including "The Work of Hope: How Individuals and Organizations Can Authentically Do Good." What was to have been a book tour grew into his "Reclaiming Main Street Campaign," with a goal of growing more public innovators across the nation. Kate Lochte speaks with Harwood on Sounds Good.

MSU Theatre Presents "Dog Sees God" A Dark Satire Inspired by "Peanuts"

When CB's dog dies from rabies, he begins to question the existence of an afterlife. His sister has gone goth, his ex-girlfriend has been institutionalized., and his other friends are too inebriated to give him solace. Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion and sexual identity collide toward an ending that's both haunting and hopeful. Murray State Theatre's Daryl Phillipy joins Tracy Ross on Sounds Good to preview this weekend's mature-audiences production of Bert V. Royals' "Dog Sees God - Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead" - a parody inspired by the comic strip "Peanuts" by Charles Schulz.
