Today on The Paws Report:
Three-year-old Thomas is a beautiful black domestic short-hair mix. He’s the first to greet you in the cat colony and the last to leave. If you could just give him a scratch on his back by his tale, that would be great. Thomas is a lap kitty, and will want to hang out with you on the couch or while you work on the computer. When Thomas has had enough loving, he will be happy to play, but play isn’t his top priority. His top priority is investigating what you are doing that could be so interesting that you stopped paying attention to him. Thomas is sweet and loving and waiting for the perfect forever home. He’s neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. Come meet him today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive. For more on Thomas or any of our adoptable pets, please call 502-366-3355 or visit kyhumane.org.
Bobby Long dropped by to talk with Kyle Meredith about his upcoming album, Ode To Thinking, and play a pair of songs from it!
From Scotland via England and now in the States, singer/songwriter Greg Holden graced our studio with two songs from his upcoming album called Chase The Sun on Warner Bros. Records. One of those songs is called “Boys In The Street” about growing up with a homophobic step-father. It’s a very powerful song and displays the expert craftsmanship of this up and coming songwriter.
