Editor's Letter

When I was younger, I told my parents that when I grew up I wanted to get paid to be outside and listen to music. I’m quite stubborn and determined, so I made that dream a reality. At this point in my life, I’ve worked countless music festivals and spent many years working for community radio stations here in Knoxville. At one station, WDVX, I was in charge of recruiting and managing volunteers for our many events. These volunteers quickly became friends. I shared meals with them, befriended their children and attended concerts in their homes. One of my very favorite volunteers even recently mailed me something that reminded her of me. It was truly an honor to work events alongside these giving people. Because of these newfound friendships, I gained such a respect for the scruffy little community that we have here in Knoxville. They were all willing to give their time and energy to a local, community radio station. Knoxvillians are great like that. You all support this amazing community that we have, and I know that local businesses like the ones that we have featured in this month’s issue feel your love as well. Take a look. You might find something new!
