With the holiday season in full swing, this week's Eastern Standard will be devoted to Kentucky Proud-specific holidays. The mantra of "buy local" is something many hear often these days, and as it turns out Kentucky has a lot of great local brands to offer. Not surprisingly, there is quite a bit more made in the commonwealth other than bourbon and beer cheese!

Guests on this week's show include:

Here’s an email we received from listener, Andrea, “I love getting my news and features from WEKU and NPR. I’ve noticed that when the local announcer gives the weather during station breaks many times the forecast is given but not the current temperature." 

  


As usual, we have a full and varied line-up programming for Thanksgiving, Hanukah, Christmas and New Year's for both WEKU and Classic 102.1.   Click here for the listening and access to a downloadable version of the schedule.

Plus, we have sponsorships available for businesses and other organizations.  For more information, call 859-622-7270 or email john.hingsbergen@eku.edu.
