This “best of” edition features some favorite segments from earlier programs. First up is Dobree Adams, a Franklin County photographer and sheep farmer who is also recognized as one of Kentucky’s major contemporary fiber artists. Dobree has roots in the Mississippi Delta and in Central Kentucky.

On the road, we visit the world’s largest ceiling clock in the Central Library rotunda of the Lexington Public Library. Instead of hands, the clock uses a series of lighted panels encircled by 60 horses that light up in succession to mark the time and give the impression of movement. The rotunda also features a five-story Foucault pendulum and a frieze painted by artist Adalin Wichman that depicts the history of the horse in the Bluegrass.

The musical encores for this program are from the Morehead State University Percussion Ensemble, which has won three Percussive Arts Society national championships in marching percussion; Louisville rock ’n’ roll band the Middle Men, performing songs from their debut release, Three Short Acts; and New Albany, IN singer Tess Arkels and her band, who mix rock, folk, pop, and blues on cuts from the CD Orphan of the Heart.
