KET’s Kentucky Life spotlights Boyce General Store, Western Kentucky Botanical Garden and singer Kelsey Waldon
KET’s next Kentucky Life travels to Warren County’s Boyce General Store, which has been in existence since 1869 and is famous for serving up great home cooking – including its signature Boyce Burger. Plus, host Doug Flynn learns about cider brewing at Lexington’s Pivot Brewing, the program spotlights the beauty of the Western Kentucky Botanical Garden in Owensboro, and Monkey’s Eyebrow native Kelsey Waldon shares her music and the inspiration behind her country singing/songwriting career.
At the 2017 Kentucky Society for Technology in Education (KySTE) conference held in Louisville in March, KET shared information about improvements to PBS LearningMedia – a free, searchable repository of educational resources – during its third annual Kentucky PBS LearningMedia Summit.
The Crowd & The Cloud, a new science series premiering in April on KET, includes a segment on Louisville’s Propeller Health, makers of sensors and smart platforms for respiratory inhalers. The episode, which airs Monday, April 17 at 4/3 pm on KET2 and Friday, April 21 at 4/3 am on KET, details how asthma inhaler sensors produced by Louisville’s Propeller Health can help generate real-time maps of environmental dangers – in an attempt to help patients better understand the causes of their symptoms.
Kentucky Life spotlights Covington composer Haven Gillespie (1888-1975), co-writer of “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” and a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame. The program also features Lexington’s Pasta Garage restaurant, takes in the sights and sounds of the Lexington Comic and Toy Convention, and profiles the arson dog program at the Bell County Forestry Camp.
KET was on hand as acclaimed author Barbara Kingsolver – known for best-sellers including The Poisonwood Bible; Animal, Vegetable, Miracle; and Prodigal Summer, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize – was inducted into the Kentucky Writers Hall of Fame, along with fellow writers Gayl Jones; Irvin S. Cobb; Joseph Seamon Cotter, Sr.; and A.B. Guthrie, Jr.
