Dinah: The Paws Report, Nov. 18, 2015


Today on The Paws Report at 3:30:

Hello friends, meet Dinah, a fun-loving, four-year-old Border Collie/Lab mix with quite the personality. Dinah made her way to the Kentucky Humane Society when a kind stranger found her roaming the cold streets in December of 2014. The staff have learned all about Dinah’s little quirks and personality traits since she first made her debut, and everyone loves her! When you first meet Dinah, she’ll be bursting with energy! Unable to control how very excited she is to meet a new friend. She might even grab a tennis ball and bring it to you, but don’t be fooled, you’ll have to move quickly to get it! Dinah also LOVES training! She dreams of finding a loving home with someone who will continue teaching her manners and other fun tricks. Once she’s comfortable with you and settled down, Dinah transforms into the biggest snuggle bug on the planet. She loves to rest her head on her humans because they make excellent pillows! You might be wondering why Dinah has yet to find her forever home after all this time with KHS. Well the truth is, Dinah needs to be the only pet in the home. She just can’t find any common ground with other dogs and cats. Dinah appears to be housetrained and knows some cool tricks like “sit” and “paw.” If you’re looking for a running buddy or a cuddle buddy, Dinah is your girl! Dinah is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. If you wish to meet Dinah, call our foster coordinator at 502-366-3355 extension 2260 to learn more and to set up a time to meet this amazingly sweet dog. View all our adoptable pets online at or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

Django Jamboree Ensemble on 91.9


Gypsy Jazz is a genre that Belgium guitarist Django Reinhardt (1910-1953) was best known for. There’s an intense local interest here and some Louisville musicians put together what’s called The Django Jamboree, now in its 5th year. Organizer Ben Andrews brought a few of the musicians by including guitarist Adrien Moignard from Paris. His playing blew my mind. Truly incredible. Enjoy!

Daniel Martin Moore in the 91.9 Studio


Daniel Martin Moore’s new album Golden Age has just been released and WFPK got to host the official release party at our first Winter Wednesday of the season! It’s a beautiful record with lots of special Kentucky artists and produced by My Morning Jacket’s Jim James. Daniel stopped by to talk about the new record and the making of it plus played us a song.
