When WDVX first started in early 1997, they were broadcasting from the enclosed back porch of an A-Frame house near Peach Orchard, TN. WDVX was a fully-functioning radio station, bringing a new sound to East Tennessee and the world. In November 1997, WDVX’s started broadcasting from its first permanent home – a 14-foot camping trailer, parked at a campground off I-75. This location helped to establish WDVX’s unique culture and personality in the early days.The Blue Plate Special, once a short set of either recorded music or live performance in the camper, has grown into a live, daily lunchtime concert, complete with studio audience. Six days a week you’ll hear performances from local or touring musicians who bring incredible entertainment to music fans around the world.
WDVX moved to its current home, the studios inside the Knoxville Visitor Center in downtown Knoxville, in 2004. Now, their studio is being renovated and the Blue Plate Special is on the road. We are excited that one of their stops will be in the Clayton Center on February 17. We hope you will join us in the Foyer from 12 to 1 PM for some live music. If you can’t join us, be sure to tune it at 89.9 fm.
Playing at the Clayton Center will be Pistol Creek Catch of the Day and Jay Clark & the Tennessee Tree Beavers.
