here is the audio. I tried to get most of the static out of it but some of the transmissions you can have a hard time hearing  :|.

Edited out the silence  and unrelated traffic

Interesting in that they did not divert to Evansville, which is near where they made their easterly turn, and they overflew Louisville to get to Lexington.

I don't know if that voice is the same, but the controller sure did a good job helping that guy out!

Yea a little hard to understand some of the last part. ATC/Aircrew did a great job.
