Amanda: The Paws Report, July 23

Today at 3:30pm for The Paws Report:

Amanda is a four-year-old Chihuahua who came to the Kentucky Humane Society from an overcrowded municipal shelter. Amanda is a total sweetheart: she is easy going and low key. Amanda finds being at the shelter stressful, and she’s hoping she will get to go to her forever home soon. Amanda arrived at KHS with an injury to her back right paw: one of the bones in her foot was broken. Amanda’s foot is healing, but she will need to be on leash walks only and no rough play for a few weeks in her new home. If you are looking for a special small dog to share your life with, please spend some time getting to know Amanda. She has a lot of love to give. Meet Amanda at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. View all adoptable pets online at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

In the Studio: The Secret Sisters

Laura and Lydia Rogers are The Secret Sisters with a new album produced by T-Bone Burnett called Put Your Needle Down. Their harmonies are reminiscent of early Everly Brothers who happen to be an influence of theirs. In this interview and performance, they talk about how they went from being casual singers and music lovers in their hometown of Florence, Alabama to touring with Paul Simon and being given a song to finish by Bob Dylan. Their trajectory has been remarkable in a very short amount of time!

From Athens, GA., now living in Nashville, we had The Whigs in the studio before their excellent performance at our June Waterfront Wednesday show. We talked about the new album, Modern Creation, and they did some acoustic versions of new songs. Pictured above is a scene from their latest video produced by Wax Fang’s Scott Carney for the song “Hit Me”.
