Singer/songwriter Rayland Baxter spent some time in our studio before his show at April’s Waterfront Wednesday. He’ll be returning in September when he opens for The Lumineers on Sept. 23rd on the Great Lawn in Waterfront Park. He’s actually allowed to play other venues than Waterfront Park but he doesn’t know it…
Looking for a cat who’s full of life and full of fun? Meet six-month-old Bear! This playful kitten came to the Kentucky Humane Society recently when his owner moved and was unable to bring Bear with him. Now that Bear’s here, he is determined to find the family he was meant to love forever. Bear is a total lover and lap-cat who likes to follow his people around wherever they go. Whenever he sees his friends here at the shelter, Bear likes to run to the door and meow until they come inside the cat room to pet him. Bear also enjoys the company of other cats and has lived with many in his previous home. Do you have the time and love to give this sweet boy the home and life he deserves? If so, come meet him today! Bear is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Meet Bear at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville Ky 40214. Visit www.kyhumane.org to view all adoptable animals or call 502-366-3355 for more information.
Soulful, passionate and spiritual is the way to describe not only the music Liz Vice sings but Liz herself. We had a great conversation with her recently before her performance at WFPK’s first Waterfront Wednesday of the season 2016.
Looking for the love of your life? A companion to greet you when you come home and cuddle with on the couch? Meet Harley! Two-year-old Harley is a sweet and adorable hound mix who can’t wait to meet you. This goofy girl came to the Kentucky Humane Society recently from an overcrowded shelter and has since been looking for the perfect family to spend her days with. Harley is a playful pup who loves going for long walks, exploring the great outdoors and playing fetch with her friends at the shelter. While she’s a hound mix who loves to sniff and explore, Harley does well on a leash and never strays far from her people. She loves toys, treats and has mastered the art of “puppy dog eyes.” Do you have the time and love to give this charming girl the forever home she deserves? If so, come meet her today. Harley is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Meet Harley at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville KY 40214. Visit www.kyhumane.org to view all adoptable animals or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

In this month’s CitySong, Ben Sollee takes us to the most iconic location in Louisville to present a brand new song celebrating the rich history of Churchill Downs. Happy Derby!
My song, The Shade of Spires, was written at Churchill Downs as we were setting up to film. It’s a simple song but sitting by the first turn of the track, watching the sun turn the shadows of the spires like a clock I thought of the history of the place. I thought of triumphs of athleticism and transcending stories of silks over skin color. I thought of challenges we still need to overcome. And the words just came. – Ben Sollee
