In our ever-continuing saga of tracking WPRB alumnus Ken Katkin’s awesomeness, we’d like to congratulate him on his special award from the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Ken’s continuing support of that state’s grand contributions to independent music has awarded him the rank of colonel:
“For decades of unbroken support for the Babylon Dance Band, King Kong, Bastro, Bonnie Prince Billy, Slint, Bodeco, Your Food, Antietam, Squirrel Bait, Papa M, the Endtables, the Blinders, the Dickbrains, the Palace Brothers, Malignant Growth, Fading Out, and even Paul K & the Weathermen.”
We hear fried chicken was served at the ceremony. Ken, now that you know the secret recipe, we have two words to say: we’re hungry!
