We had a delightful visit with banjo-playing, husband-and-wife duo Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn before their show at WFPK Waterfront Wednesday. They talked about how they first got together, why after so many years pursuing their solo careers they are now playing as a family, and their plans for even more banjos to add to their already huge collection. They also played a couple of songs for us too!
Pokey LaFarge and his 7 piece band thrilled the Waterfront Wednesday crowd with their wonderful music and performance. Before the show, Pokey came by our studio to talk about his new record Something In The Water and about a documentary on American music he’s to be a part of.
Today at 3:30 for The Paws Report:
Kai is a two-year-old seal-point Siamese mix with gorgeous blue eyes. He came to the Kentucky Humane Society when his owner was persuaded to surrender eight of her 32 cats for adoption. Kai is a calm little guy with a laid-back personality. He enjoys perching high off the ground and lounging in his cat condo. Kai is very affectionate and loves meeting new people – especially if you will scratch under his chin. Kai gets along well with other cats too. He is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Meet Kai at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. Visit www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information about all our adoptable pets.
All Your Favorite Bands is the excellent new album from Dawes. Before their sold out show at Headliners on June 9, they did a members only show for WFPK listeners.
DJ Matt Anthony recently had the Wisconsin band Phox in the studio to perform a couple of songs for us.
