Mar 14, 2016

We asked our loyal WUKY listeners to narrow down their favorite all-time albums to just five. (We know, impossible, right?) But you came through.

The responses have been tabulated and this week, during our Spring Fund Drive, we'll be counting down the top 400 results during Rock & Roots. Who will come out on top? You'll have to wait and see...

The WUKY Rock & Roots Movie Series... 6 award winning music documentaries... 6 Monday nights, beginning April 11 @ The Kentucky Theatre... all SHOWTIMES, 7:15PM. Thanks to Fred Mills and his hard working, dedicated staff at the historic Kentucky, we're able to bring you a great selection of carefully selected films... one of them is from local documentation, KETs Tom Thurman.
