WFIV unveils ‘Homegrown’

i105 WFIV, Knoxville’s Independent Radio, announces “Homegrown,” a weekly specialty program focusing on the local music scene, has a new “home.”

Beginning April 7, listeners will be able to be part of the Homegrown audience as the show debuts live at the Disc Exchange, 2615 Chapman Highway, in Knoxville.

“We are extremely excited about this new partnership,” said Tony Cox, i105 general manager.

“Homegrown has been a Knoxville staple for promoting local artists and their music. Being able to have Homegrown in front of a live audience gives our listeners a chance to see and experience local artists in an intimate setting.

“We believe in local music. We play a lot of local artists. And, now we can help local artists gain exposure to an audience who may never have seen the artist before. It can truly enhance a listener’s appreciation for the talent that Knoxville has,” he added.

The Disc Exchange, an independently owned and operated record store, began in 1987. The store sells new and used CDs, DVDs and vinyl records. It is one of the few locations in East Tennessee where CDs of local and regional artists are sold.

“Having Homegrown live at the Disc Exchange is an honor,” Cox said.

“Our shared desire to promote local artists and help them gain new fans makes this a wonderful new partnership.”

i105’s Homegrown specialty show has been part of the station’s programming for more than four years. Show host Joe Stutler has been involved in the local music scene for more than 10 years. His insightful comments and questions allow artists to share their stories and music for a truly enjoyable evening.

Homegrown airs from 7 to 9 p.m., every Wednesday night on 105.3 WFIV-FM. For more information on Homegrown and i105 WFIV, contact Cox by phone or e-mail at 865-218-5602 or
