A concert featuring the music of Berea-based Sam Gleaves kicks off the 2016 season of our eclectic music series Kentucky Summer Stage.  

Sunday evening's broadcast at 8:00 pm features the Virginia-native singer/songwriter accompanied by: Tyler Hughes, Deborah Payne, Stephanie Jeter and Cory Shenk in a January 31, 2016 concert at the Bluegrass United Church of Christ in Lexington.

It’s time for our preview of weekend events with Rich Copley of the Lexington Herald Leader.  As usual, Rich is on the line with WEKU’s John Hingsbergen, discussing this week and weekend's bluegrass activities, the Harry Dean Stanton Festival and the BlackBird Dance troupe at the Downtown Arts Center.
