In the Studio: Charlie Mars


Charlie Mars has a new album called The Money and will be here for our first WFPK Winter Wednesday concert at The Clifton Center of the season on Nov. 12. He thinks it’s his first show in Louisville – but not so fast, buddy. Laura remembers you in concert on June 2, 2010, at Zanzabar and has a review to prove it!

Montana: The Paws Report, Nov. 12


Today at 3:30pm meet nine-month-old Montana, a gorgeous strawberry-blonde pit bull terrier mix who loves everyone she meets. Got a toy? She’ll love you even more! As do most young dogs, Montana has a lot of energy, and she would enjoy being taken for long walks and romps at a dog park with her new family. Montana enjoys training, as it uses some of her energy and helps her understand what was expected of her. Do you have the time and the energy to make Montana the happiest girl around? Montana is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. Come visit her today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. View all adoptable pets at or call 502-366-3355 for more information. Actually, we met Tucker today. Montana was being looked at by a prospective adopter who didn’t take her so she’s still available.
