Chattanooga, TN – Picking the Winning Horse Or Premonitions of Artistic Grandeur
Dr. McCormack asked me to compile a list of artists I have listened to, and enjoyed, over the brief time I have produced The American Music Hour for WUTC. Oh, the perils of expressing one's opinion publicly. None the less and only trying to help, I give you my new favorites:
Chattanooga, TN – Join Cindy Pinion Monday, November 4th at 8PM for the monthly bluegrass edition of Voices From Home. This month, Cindy features highlights of the Chattanooga Bluegrass Experience concert which was held on Sunday, October 20th at the Chattanooga Market in Cricket Pavilion. We will hear selection by The Lone Mountain Band, Straight Line, and the James King Band. For more information about these or other bluegrass bands in the Chattanooga area check out www.boxcarforeverbluegrass.com
Chattanooga, TN – WUTC, like all not for profit organizations, tries hard to cover all of its many expenses. Often listeners have helped us meeting some of these specific needs. Currently, the radio station is trying to find office chairs and carpeting. Listeners who help WUTC with these acqisitions could possibly meet the criteria for tax deductions.
If you or your company might be able to help, please call (423) 425-2377 and ask for Lawaunda January.
Chattanooga, TN – On September 29, 2002 WUTC-FM completed its fall membership drive with a total of $122,283.30 in membership pledges. Listeners from Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama were provided 'thank you' gifts of such items as t-shirts, CDs, travel mugs, whitewater trips, and gourmet lunches. WUTC wishes once again to thank all of its generous members for their support.
Chattanooga, TN – If you love the music and news programming on WUTC, but live outside the Tennessee valley or listen on the very fringes of our air signal, there is good news: WUTC is now web-streaming. "It is exciting to know that we are no longer limited by geographic boundaries. Now the whole world is our audience." states WUTC manager John McCormack.
Chattanooga, TN – On May 19, 1998 a geosynchronous satellite named Galaxy IV suffered a catastrophic technical failure, which made it impossible to aim its antenna at North America. The result? Ninety percent of pagers in the United States were rendered useless along with ATM machines, self-pay gas pumps and signals from broadcasters around the world, including National Public Radio. Most of us had no idea that so much information could be dependant on one satellite.
Chattanooga, TN – Every once in a while, there is a reactionary shift in the arts. In times of excess, people crave simplicity. Awash in the over production of popular music, audiences were bound to call for a simpler, truer music. With the stellar success of the Oh Brother! Where Art Thou soundtrack, this has become evident to the music business as a whole. The movement of musicians, who found influence and solace in the Appalachian harmonies of the Carter Family, or the narratives of Jimmie Rogers, finally found commercial viability and airplay.
