This week’s Live Lunch was a little different. Laura sat with Carlene Carter the full hour, as Carlene discussed her life and career, reminisced about the Carter Family, and played songs.

Sturgill Simpson on WFPK

sturgill

Sturgill Simpson is not your typical honky-tonk-get-drunk-break-your-heart country songwriter. In fact he blends psychedelia and quantum physics into his songs along with twangy guitars and his deep baritone voice reminiscent of Waylon and Johnny. His newest album is called Metamodern Sounds of Country Music.

Wobbles: The Paws Report, April 23

Wobbles

Meet Wobbles, a handsome two-year-old black cat who came to the Kentucky Humane Society from another animal agency. Wobbles earned his name because of the way he walks. In his previous life, he had been a community cat (meaning he lived outside). Tragically, he had been hit by a car. A Good Samaritan found him and contacted Alley Cat Advocates, who provided Wobbles with care and time to heal. Now, the only reminder of the accident is his wobbly gait. Wobbles is very affectionate and loves greeting people from his cat condo in the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus adoption lobby. He has a very loud purr and seeks out attention. After all that Wobbles has gone through, he deserves a loving, forever home where he can relax and spend time doing what he likes best: interacting with people, watching the birds and begging for head rubs. Wobbles is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations.
