Dear Listeners...

Dear Listeners,

Once again WUKY's Phoenix Fridays has been a success... and that's because you made your way to the heart of Lexington... Phoenix Park. Thanks to you for showing up, spreading the word... and mostly for your loyal support. 

2017 is already looking like it'll be another series of exciting local and nationally touring bands.

Thanks for being there,

Mike Graves

Thanks to all of our sponsors...

The 3rd Annual MoonTower Music Festival Brings New Headliners to Lexington

[LEXINGTON, KY] April 8, 2016MoonTower Music Festival is returning to Lexington on August 27th for its third consecutive year of music, food, and festival fare.

As Joseph, sisters Allison, Meegan and Natalie Closner sing in tight harmony, fitting stylistically alongside fellow sister acts like First Aid Kit, Haim, The Staves and Lily & Madeleine.

Here's something I find remarkable: There are only three professionally made recordings of The Beatles playing live in concert. Sure, there are bootleg recordings that don't sound very good. And there's a single-microphone recording from the band's days performing in Hamburg in the early '60s, but that's it.

Stay tuned... we're all set to sit down with Rock & Roots artists, The Suffers, Anderson East and Death Cab for Cutie... audio and images on the way...
