Curtains@8! Turning 20

Jan 17, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. - For two decades, Central Kentuckians have been informed, entertained, and moved by the talents of countless authors, performers, and promoters on Curtains at 8 with Nick Lawrence.  Thursday marks the 20th anniversary of the program's first broadcast.

“Twenty years, at about fifty shows a year, fifty weeks a year, three shows a week…some three thousand people have been through here best I can tell”, Lawrence told WUKY’s Alan Lytle.

Even before he started working for WUKY, the long-time host had an idea of what kind of radio show he wanted to do. 

Lexington's own Ben Sollee stopped by WUKY to favor us with a couple songs from his newest record, Half-Made Man. Watch a simmering liver version of "DIY."

From NPR: Ben Sollee's forthcoming album Half Made Man positively soars, with cellos used to feed the drama and fuel Sollee's ruminations on the pursuit of meaning in modern life. Watch "Unfinished" below.
