Deep within the catacombs of the historic Taft Theatre lies a cavernous ballroom, heretofore unseen by the average theater-goer. Until this year, most people weren't even aware such a room existed (rumor has it there is even a shooting range just behind one of the doors within the ballroom).
In 2010, local musician and long time WNKU fan, David Rhodes Brown, dropped by the station to let us know he was going to throw a big party with dozens of local bands, sell tickets, and donate the money to WNKU.
Forecastle returns to Louisville's Waterfront Park July 13-15 to celebrate it's 10th year with a lineup that includes Wilco, My Morning Jacket, Neko Case, Walk the Moon, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Andrew Bird, and Justin Townes Earle just to name a few.

The inaugural Bunbury Music Festival takes place July 13th - 15th at Sawyer Point and Yeatman's Cove.

We've said it before and we'll say it again. WNKU listeners are the absolute best! Thanks to everyone who made a contribution during our fiscal year-end campaign. We really appreciate all of the support you've shown this station.
