Murray, KY-based Secular Pets brings tenderhearted rock n' roll to the next Live Lunch on Valentine's Day, February 14th. 

After more than a decade of existing as a private, free-form, sonic journal, Secular Pets have cemented their place in the foundation of the western KY music scene. Secular Pets is the musical project of Tim Peyton and a rotating cast of friends and family, including western Kentucky musical backbone mainstays and multi-instrumentalists S. Knox Montgomery and Matthew Rowan. This bass, drum, and guitar trio have come together to heal the hurt and gently rock n' roll.

Join Tracy Ross on Friday, February 14th, at 12 noon for Secular Pets' performance. You can listen on-air, on the WKMS website, or on the WKMS Facebook page. Live Lunch is made possible by Murray State Digital Media Services, Just Hamburgers in Paducah, and listeners like you.
