Sturgill Simpson on WFPK


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.

Elizabeth: The Paws Report, April 16


The Star of The Paws Report today at 3:30pm:
Are you looking for a smart, loving companion to share life’s adventures and laughs with? Then you need to meet happy, smiley, playful Elizabeth, a black standard poodle with a great sense of humor and a zest for life. Want a dog to teach new tricks to? Or looking for a canine agility dog? Or want a companion who loves to go for walks? Or looking for someone to play ball with? Elizabeth could be the perfect dog for you! After a fun romp with you, Elizabeth will quickly settle down next to you and take a snooze. Elizabeth likes cats a bit too much for their comfort level (so a home without cats would be best), and she does OK with other dogs as long as they understand she’s the queen bee. Currently, Elizabeth lives in a foster home with another dog. If you do have another dog at home, we’ll require a “meet and greet” to make sure they get along. Like many poodles, Elizabeth may be just a bit shy around new people – but she quickly warms up and is ready to make friends. If you would like to learn more, contact Elizabeth’s foster parent. Learn more at the Kentucky Humane Society’s website, or call 502-366-3355.

Leonard: The Paws Report, April 9


Today at 3:30pm meet Leonard, a handsome orange-and-white cat who is about three years old. Leonard came to the Kentucky Humane Society as a stray, and he is patiently awaiting his forever home. This guy is not only beautiful, but he is also a total lover! He enjoys affection from his human friends and would be in heaven if you could just spend your whole day devoted to loving on him. While Leonard knows that a 24/7 cuddle session may not be feasible, he will gladly accept a nice tall perch to settle down on while you’re away. He really likes being up high, taking in the sights and sounds of all that surround him. Leonard gets along well with the other kitties in the KHS East Campus cat colony room. He is neutered, micro-chipped, and up-to-date on vaccinations. Meet this sweetheart at the Kentucky Humane Society’s East Campus, 1000 Lyndon Lane, Louisville. View all adoptable cats and dogs at or call 502-366-3355 for more information.
