CD Of The Month makes a GREAT gift

Nov 24, 2015

What a great way to support WNKU by becoming a sustaining member of the CD Of The Month Club, but it also makes a great gift.  For the person that has everything, wouldn't they love to get new music every month just by going to their mailbox?  Ryan Adams 1989 is the CD for November and Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats self titled album for December. The CD Of The Month Club, totally not a regift!

Joe Mitchell: From a musical standpoint no one’s really doing what we’re doing

Joe Mitchell and his Indie rock band the Mitchells along with Cincinnati’s world-renowned chamber orchestra Concert: Nova have collaborated on an adaptation of Austrian composer Franz Schubert’s Die Schone Mullerin and Winterreise.

 Mitchell says the collaboration is unique but different than a rock band like Metallica playing with the Boston Philharmonic which has been done .

There was a time, not long ago, when the topper on a wedding cake was a bride in a white dress and a groom in a tux. But marriage has evolved and gender is no longer a defining attribute.Society’s increasing acceptance of gays and lesbians and the Supreme Court ruling in June that legalized same-sex marriage have focused attention on sexual orientation.When men and women who have been in heterosexual marriages come “out of the closet,” WNKU’s Cheri Lawson reports, the partners they leave behind often find themselves wondering where to turn.

We sing in bars and breweries and parks and invite people who maybe wouldn’t normally come to a choir concert to be exposed to great choral music and have a beer while they’re doing it.

A U.S. District Judge last week ordered Clerk Kim Davis to resume issuing marriage licenses despite her objections to gay marriage. The ruling by Judge David Bunning was the result of a lawsuit against Davis by four couples who were denied marriage licenses.

UPDATE: The clerk is appealing last week’s ruling to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. She also asked for a stay of the judge’s order, which Bunning has effectively granted.
