For Release: 02/11/19 12:03 PM
The next episode of KET’s Kentucky Life spotlights Kentucky Music Hall of Fame Band Exile, begins a three-part investigation into former president Ulysses S. Grant’s Kentucky ties, and visits Louisville restaurant SuperChefs. The program airs this Saturday, Feb. 16 at 8/7 pm and Sunday, Feb. 17 at 4/3 pm on KET and Monday, Feb. 18 at 7/6 pm on KET2.
First, host Doug Flynn talks with J.P. Pennington, founder of the band Exile, which was started in Richmond in 1963 and inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame in 2013. Perhaps best known for their chart-topping 1978 pop/rock ballad “Kiss You All Over,” the band has also recorded numerous No. 1 songs on the country charts including “Woke Up in Love” and “Hang On to Your Heart.” The program includes a portion of Exile’s recent performance at the historic Renfro Valley Entertainment Center.
Then, Kentucky Life begins the first of a three-part look at the varied Kentucky connections in the life of former president Ulysses S. Grant, who attended school in Maysville for a time.
Finally, the program travels to Louisville to meet Ryan Bryson and Darnell Ferguson, the friends-turned-chefs behind the restaurant SuperChefs, which has become a favorite breakfast spot for locals.
