 NPR Tiny Desk Concert veteran and self-described "intuitive folk" multi-instrumentalist, Diane Cluck, speaks with Tracy Ross on Sounds Good ahead of her intimate house show in Paducah next week. 

    Diane Cluck's unconventional and captivating music sprung out of the anti-folk movement of the early 2000s in New York City. A multi-instrumentalist since a young age, Cluck embodies an unaffected and primally agile vocal tone reminiscent of an early Joni Mitchell all while accompanying herself on guitar, piano, and/or body percussion. In 2014, she was featured on NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series (which you can watch here), and has enjoyed a 15 year long recording and touring career. She now resides in Virginia. 
        Tracy Ross speaks with Diane Cluck on Sounds Good about the significance of music in her life, her performance style and preferences, and the intimate house show she's playing in Paducah this Monday, September 25th. Space is limited, so make sure to order tickets ($15) in advance. For more information about the house show, click here.

Tracy started working for WKMS in 1994 while attending Murray State University. After receiving his Bachelors and Masters degrees from MSU he was hired as Operations/Web/Sports Director in 2000. Tracy hosted All Things Considered from 2004-2012 and has served as host/producer of several music shows including Cafe Jazz, and Jazz Horizons. In 2001, Tracy revived Beyond The Edge, a legacy alternative music program that had been on hiatus for several years. Tracy was named Program Director in 2011 and created the midday music and conversation program Sounds Good in 2012 which he hosts Monday-Thursday. Tracy lives in Murray with his wife, son and daughter.
Melanie Davis-McAfee graduated from Murray State University in 2018 with a BA in Music Business. She has been working for WKMS as a Music and Operations Assistant since 2017.
