Not only is Lillian Stone a big fan of KSMU, so is her dog Turtle.

“He has a really laid back little personality and I think that’s why he is so into the classical music programing,” says Stone.

The Boston Terrier’s snorts and grunts are signs of affection for KSMU’s music, according to Stone.

“He likes to ride in the car and let the air conditioner blow in his face and listen to classical music—it’s like his favorite thing,” Stone says with a laugh.

When he’s not on stage or rehearsing with Branson’s Million Dollar Quartet, drummer Daniel Dossey is often listening to KSMU. He says the experience can be an adventure.

“So when I hear something new, my brain just really perks up,” says Dossey. “And I do go down that rabbit hole and try to hunt down these - and so I’m constantly on these little NPR, KSMU quests, like what was I just listening to? That was incredible!”
