Louisville Public Media adds new programming on WFPK-FM, including two new local shows: "502unes with Sam Sneed" and "In the Pocket with Destiny Carter." The new program schedule, which aims to highlight new local voices and music, will take effect Saturday, August 20.

"502unes with Sam Sneed" highlights artists from Louisville, Southern Indiana and the surrounding areas for one hour every Sunday, beginning at 9pm. Sneed is a musician, producer, and open-format air talent based in Louisville, where he's been a part of the city's music scene for more than two decades. He's played in punk and garage bands, booked shows, hosted college radio, worked in the indie recording industry and currently holds down some of club residencies in Louisville as an award winning DJ.

"In the Pocket with Destiny Carter" will air Thursday nights at 10pm and showcase classic soul, new soul, R&B and funk. Carter is a multifaceted creative, born and raised in the West End of Louisville. She wears many hats as a DJ and aspiring turntablist, jeweler, sound engineer and flow artist.

In addition to the new show lineup, Kimmet Cantwell is joining WFPK on Sundays from 9am-3pm to host a mix heavy on classic WFPK favorites, plus, the best in new music. Cantwell is a dynamic vocalist, musician, songwriter, and digital creator who calls Louisville home. She is the lead singer of the band From Paris, plays the Stevie Nicks role in the successful Back 2 Mac - A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac, and has sung in multiple bands, including the duo, Kimmet & Doug.

"These changes will enable us to deliver more independent and local music, provide a more consistent experience for listeners and bring new voices to the WFPK team. We plan to connect you to our hosts and the artists you love in more meaningful ways, and strengthen this amazing community of music lovers," said WFPK Program Director Stacy Owen.

The WFPK schedule will no longer include "Nightvisions," "American Routes," "The Constellation," "Sound Opinions," "Woody's Roadhouse," "Grateful Dead Hour "and jazz programming on Sunday mornings.

"I have great respect and appreciation for jazz as an artform and the hosts who've shared their love for the music with this community. My deepest appreciation to all our heritage programmers for sharing their talent and so many magical moments through the years," said Owen.
