A rain or shine event celebrating Earth Day is on the radar for this weekend. It's the 6th Annual Earth Day Concert in Carson Park in Paducah, and keeping with the environmental "teach-in" feel of the first Earth Day, April 22, 1970, there will be informational displays and concessions available with proceeds supporting the Greater Paducah Sustainability Project. On Sounds Good, Kate Lochte speaks with West Kentucky Community and Technical College Professor of Philosophy and Sociology David Nickell, who has the day's schedule.

Bands convene at Carson Park this Saturday (April 21) for an Earth Day Concert benefiting recycling in Paducah.  The event seeks to bring the community together to help plant sunflowers, which will bloom in July/August. Tracy Ross speaks with David Nickell of West Kentucky Community and Technical College for a preview.
