WUTC Wish List

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.

WUTC Gets New Satellite System

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.

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.
