Laura Shine is the afternoon host and assistant Program Director at our World Cafe affiliate WFPK in Louisville, Kentucky
For our Sense Of Place visit to Louisville, Kentucky we have a chance to meet singer-songwriter Cheyenne Mize.
John Timmons moved to Louisville in 1975. He opened one of America’s great record stores Ear X –Tacy in 1985 and it had a good run until 2011. He certainly has the credentials to pick the 5 greatest all time Louisville artists. Once again, what makes it hard is the limitation of only 5. Some you may have figured on- like Jim James and My Morning Jacket who have put Louisville on the map for everybody. But how about singer-songwriter Tim Krekel who made Louisville home for years? NRBQ might be on a lot of people’s lists, but how about original member Steve Ferguson? That’s the kind of insight we will get from John today.
