MURRAY — Local music group The Savage Radley will be featured on an upcoming episode of “Kentucky Life” on KET.
The band is helmed by singer/songwriter Shaina Goodman, a Hickman native who came to Murray and graduated from Murray State University. Goodman said that being on the program was a good opportunity to let people in the rest of the state know what is going on musically in far western Kentucky.
Goodman was joined on the program by bandmates and fellow area musicians Matthew Rowan and Stephen Montgomery.
“It was really nice to be asked to do that,” she said. “It is always great to be able to shine a light on this area and talk about what is going on and get to kind of share with the rest of the state what is going on in our neck of the woods.”
Goodman said the band was interviewed at Loud and Clear, a recording studio located in Paducah that has worked with The Savage Radley and numerous area bands.
“It was cool to be able to do it in Loud and Clear, which is a studio we do a lot of work out of,” Goodman said. “It is where we recorded our first album, so it was great to do it in a place where we felt really comfortable. It is also a place we are always proud to show off and talk about all of the great work that has come out of there in recent years.”
Goodman said it was an interesting experience, and is hopefully one that will draw more attention not only to her own work, but the work of others in this part of the commonwealth.
“It was definitely a neat opportunity for people who might not get to see us otherwise get to see us at home,” Goodman said. “So hopefully that will spark enough interest for people to get out and see us this summer and fall.”
The episode airs Saturday, April 6, at 7 p.m. Central time and Sunday, April 7, at 3 p.m. on KET and Monday, April 8, at 6 p.m. on KET2.
