CitySong with Joan Shelley


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.”

The Tallest Man on Earth!


Kristian Matsson is The Tallest Man on Earth and still managed to fit into our performance studio and play a few songs for us.

Paul Thorn in the 91.9 Studio


One of my favorite people to interview is musician Paul Thorn. He’s talented, funny, charming, smart and in his own words, “The Goodest”. He was here for our May Waterfront Wednesday and we got to visit for a bit.

Shiloh: The Paws Report, June 7


Today at 3:30 for The Paws Report:

Meet Shiloh, a pretty one-year-old kitty with unusual ears. Shiloh’s fur is almost all white except for a bit of gray on the top of her head. This sweetheart with yellow-green eyes came to the Kentucky Humane Society from an overcrowded shelter. When she arrived at our doors in April, her ears were quite infected – something we think she may have suffered from for a long time, as the shape of her ears are a bit unusual. (We affectionately think she looks a bit like Dr. Spock!) At KHS, our veterinary team treated her ears, and they look so much better! She’s definitely a happier cat now too, and she enjoys meeting new people and snuggling. Shiloh is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations and micro-chipped. Meet Shiloh at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus at 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. View all our adoptable pets at or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

KHS currently has 273 kittens and mama cats in foster care right now, and more are coming in! People interested in becoming foster caregivers should contact Kayla Saylor, or foster coordinator, at or 502-366-3355 ext. 2260. KHS provides all the necessary supplies and training. Once the kittens are old enough for adoption (usually 2-4 weeks), they (and their moms) come back to KHS to be spayed/neutered and placed for adoption.

In addition, June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month; we are offering $10 adoptions on select cats the entire month. This is done in partnership with Best Friends Animal Society. LMAS is also offering the same adoption special all month long.

Bridger & Ivy: The Paws Report, May 31


Today on The Paws Report at 3:30:

Meet Bridger and Ivy, a bonded pair of wirehaired Dachshunds. These beautiful, well-mannered pups are a joy to be with. They came to the Kentucky Humane Society for adoption after their owner passed away. Bridger, the male, is just a bit larger than Ivy, a female. We estimate them both to be about 10 years old. They are very sweet and easy going and seem to have gentle souls. If you wish to meet these two mellow mates, please visit them at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. We don’t think you’ll be disappointed! Bridger and Ivy are spayed/neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. View all our adoptable pets at or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

KHS also has a number of bonded pairs right now, including Butters and Abby, two cats who came in together; and Watson and Baby Bear, two Chihuahua mixes who came in separately and who were both very shut down at the shelter and scared – until they met each other and became the best of friends. They now do everything together, and our staff celebrated their bond by uniting them in “marriage” last week. We will require that they be adopted together, as they both do better with their friend.
