It's Pride Month and WUKY's award winning history segment Saving Stories marks the milestone with a look back at the brief but impactful run of Cafe LMNOP; a popular nightspot which was located near the UK campus. Doug Boyd with the Nunn Center for Oral History in the UK Libraries shares an interview with the club's brainchild Bradley Pickelsimer.

The Cafe LMNOP interviews are part of a collection that explores underground music and culture in Lexington, Kentucky.
