Looking for a happy-go-lucky dog with a gentle nature? Look no further than Lucy! Eight-year-old Lucy is a gorgeous Beagle mix looking for someone she can love forever. Lucy found herself at the Kentucky Humane Society when her previous owner was moving and could no longer care for her. Now she’s ready to find a home that will last her a lifetime! As far as staff and our volunteers are concerned, Lucy is the total package. She walks well on a leash, knows many of her basic commands and even does well with other animals. While she may be eight years old, Lucy still has a lot of pep in her step! She loves going for long walks with our volunteers and running around the play yard. If a lively, gentle, loving companion is what you’re after, come visit Lucy today! Lucy is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Visit her at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. Learn about all our adoptable pets at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355.
Also, Apocalypse Brew Works is throwing a Yappy Hour fundraiser for the Kentucky Humane Society! The dog-friendly event is taking place on September 18th from 5-11 pm and there will be food from local food trucks, beer and live music. A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the Kentucky Humane Society.
Anderson East was our first Artist in Residence at WFPK performing not only at August’s Waterfront Wednesday but also Live Lunch and the New Albany Bicentennial Park Concert Series too. So, of course we had to have him come by the station because that simply wasn’t enough of this very talented artist!
Maia Sharp‘s forthcoming release will be called The Dash Between The Dates. When she and her guitarist, Linda Taylor, were here for our August Waterfront Wednesday, we asked her about the title for the new album and to play a song for us too.
Will Oldham aka Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy is a very busy guy. He does everything from acting in film and television to commissioned works, voice-narration and of course, his own music. He has several dates where he’ll be performing in town over the next couple of weeks and stopped by the studio to talk about some of those gigs among other things, too.

Meet Shelby, a six-year-old Border Collie mix who came to the Kentucky Humane Society with a large wound and an exposed bone in her front leg. The wound was severely infected and veterinarians determined that her limb could not be saved. After her leg was amputated, Shelby spent a month in foster care where she learned how to get along on three legs. Shelby is feeling much better now that the pain she was suffering from is gone, and she’s now ready for a loving family who will be patient with her as she continues to heal and gain strength. She’s a very sweet, smart, curious dog who cocks her head while listening, which we think is very endearing. Shelby seems to like other dogs and can play quite intensely, so she may do best with a playful dog; we recommend a meet-and-greet to make sure that Shelby’s play style is accepted by any resident dogs in her new home. Shelby appears to be house broken and has not had any accidents while in foster care. If you would like to give this wonderful dog something she has missed out on in the past – a loving home – please come meet her at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. Shelby is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Learn more about Shelby and all our adoptable pets at www.kyhumane.org or by calling 502-366-3355.

In honor of her performance at the Aug. 26 edition of WFPK Waterfront Wednesday, we’re premiering a brand new track from Maia Sharp’s upcoming record today. Around 11 a.m., John Timmons will play Nothing but the Radio. The song will then be available online tomorrow through iTunes.
Nothing but the Radio is the first single from Sharp’s latest album, The Dash Between the Dates. It’s her sixth solo record overall and the first from eOne. “It’s not a concept album,” Sharp says of the LP, “but I was trying to look at things with a wider-angle lens and bring more breadth to the songs without sacrificing the intimacy. Maybe that’s the concept.”
