hayes_carll3

The WFPK Waterfront Wednesday® Concert Series is a monthly free concert on the Big Four Lawn in Louisville Waterfront Park, located next to the Big Four Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge. The Big Four Lawn “opens” at 5pm, and the music begins promptly at 6pm. Have questions? Check out our FAQ page!

To alleviate parking congestion caused by the KY/IN Bridges project, a free trolley service, courtesy of Republic Bank, will be offered between Witherspoon and the Big Four Lawn for people who park West of I-65. The Republic Bank Easy Trolley will run a continuous loop between 6:00 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. We strongly suggest parking West of I -65 in the Witherspoon, Humana and surface lots. Increased bicycle parking will be offered in the event area, courtesy of Parkside Bikes. VIEW MAP OF PARKING OPTIONS HERE.

It’s The Monkees on 91.9!

Celebrating their 50th year as pop and television icons plus a new album called Good Times!, we had Mickey Dolenz and Peter Tork of The Monkees in our studio when they were here for a show at The Louisville Palace. Michael Nesmith phoned in during the broadcast and you could tell there is a genuine affection among the band still, after all of these years.

Idella: The Paws Report, June 28

Idella

Today on the Paws Report at 3:30:

Meet seven-year-old Idella, a gorgeous, full-figured gal in need of some love. This cat-nip crazy feline came to the Kentucky Humane Society in April when a family member became allergic to her, and she has been looking for a kind family to love ever since. Idella is a playful girl who loves, loves, loves toys! Give her a noisy toy to chase and she’ll be your best friend in no time. While Idella has tested positive for FIV, that doesn’t mean she can’t live a healthy, normal life. Her status does mean she should be either the only cat in the home or she should live with other cats who are also FIV positive. If you are looking for a lover of a cat, please come pay our Idella a visit. We know she’d love to see you! Idella is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Meet her at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 214 Steedly Drive in Louisville. View all adoptable pets at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

We also will discuss July 4th pet safety tips! More pets are lost around July 4th than any day.

CitySong with Joan Shelley

JoanShelley1-

Louisville singer/songwriter Joan Shelley about her CitySong video:

“This part of the Beargrass Creek Trail seems like a forgotten place within the city, in a corridor between the highway and Lexington road. Aside from the paved trail it is mostly left alone and so it is a wild seeming place, a refuge for small creatures that are pushed out of neighborhoods and plants that are let alone to grow in their natural shapes (invasive though they may be, it is more beautiful to see a un-lopped tree or vigorous blooming honeysuckle). It is the fastest escape for me in my neighborhood to give my eyes a rest from all the hard lines (power lines, telephone lines, guardrails, yellow lines) which in turn rests my mind. The creek is not very clean but you can still see ducks, herons, and turtles sunning themselves on logs. This kind of solitude allows thoughts, songs, and ideas to form.”
