We're pleased to present another season of broadcasts of the Paducah Symphony Orchestra on WKMS and WKMS All-Classical. We'll air the program a week after each live performance from The Carson Center in Paducah. Hear conversations with the symphony's Executive Director Daniel Sene and Maestro Raffaeli Ponti on Sounds Good before the performances. 

Dates & Times: 

Update: John chats with Tracy Ross on Sounds Good about the show on August 21, 2015. Audio added.

John Null hosts a new show heavily rooted in the underground music scene of the 1980s. Artists like The Smiths, The Replacements, The Cure, New Order, David Bowie and Depeche Mode form the substratum of Left of the Dial, but you’re guaranteed at least a couple Reagan-era jams every week that you’ve never heard before. 

This summer, WKMS broadcast youth concerts from across the region on WKMS All-Classical, recorded last spring. We're repeating the series beginning this week. This special program features concerts from Graves Co. High School, McCracken Co. High School, Ballard Co. High School, Paducah Tilghman High School, Murray Elementary, Murray Middle, Murray High School, the Paducah Symphony Orchestra Summer Camp, numerous schools participating in the Jamey Aebersold Jazz Festival, and various bands/choirs from Murray State University.
