The wonderful and talented Brett Dennen stopped by our studio the other day on his way to a colder climate but enjoyed his brief stay in sunny Louisville. His new album is called Smoke and Mirrors and he played for us a couple of songs live.

Jazzy & Kittens: The Paws Report, March 12


One-year-old Jazzy came to the Kentucky Humane Society in September 2013 along with her four newborn babies and an orphan that she adopted and raised as her own. She spent time in foster care while raising the kittens, where she quickly settled in and got down to the business of raising a family. Her kittens are on their own now and, happily, have all been adopted so Jazzy is ready for a home of her own. Jazzy is a sweet, affectionate and easy-going cat. She would be perfect for just about any home. She likes to play but also loves to lie quietly next to you and lull you to sleep with her gentle purring. If you’re looking for a furry companion who is sweet, gentle and affectionate with just the right amount of energy, Jazzy is the girl for you! She is spayed, micro-chipped, up-to-date on vaccinations and ready to go home. Come meet Jazzy at our East Campus, 1000 Lyndon Lane. For more on Jazzy or any of our adoptable pets, call 502-366-3355 or visit

Also, it’s kitten season and the Kentucky Humane Society needs YOUR help in order to care for all the tiny kittens headed their way. They are holding a “kitten shower” to help gather these much-needed items on March 15 from noon to 2 p.m. at the Main Campus on Steedly Drive. There will be games, entertainment for the children and refreshments.
