Nashville's newest listener-supported nonprofit freeform radio station, +WXNAfm
101.5-FM is scheduled for blast off! It is officially time to celebrate! Funny enough WRVU went off the air on June 7th, 2011... but +WXNAfm
is going on the air June 4th, 2016 - 5 years to the week. How 'bout that! And in reference to the station's FM frequency, they're kicking it off on Saturday at 10:15am!
The Board has action-packed programming slated for this weekend (June 4&5) to get things started. I write to not only announce the first days of official programming, but also to mention that they've invited the inaugural community dj's to the studio to celebrate and introduce ourselves and our shows in a rapid series they've aptly titled "15 Minutes of Fame."
The illustrious folks of the +WXNAfm
Board will be joined by many luminaries such as djB +John Brassil
, +Anna Lundy
the Indie Pop Princess, D-Funk +Doyle Davis
, Jonathan Marx, Tommy freakin' Womack, among many many other wonderfully talented and eager folks who will be keeping the airwaves HOT over the weekend - just for you! -- If you can't tune in this weekend, do know that regular programming begins this following Monday, June 6. --
For those of you who haven't heard from me directly, or in a while, I will have my short feature this coming Saturday night (June 4) from 6:45pm to 7pm. I'll be introducing my new show, Sound Mind & Proxy. My tag line is Global Platters That Matter, and I plan on following through on that promise by presenting a very diverse, but invariably appreciable, if not enjoyable smattering of global sounds - beholden to no era and flying in the face of all genres; the sum of my musical knowledge for your listening pleasure. My regular weekly show is slated for Friday nights from 7pm to 8pm - know that! For those of you not in middle Tennessee, you can stream the station from the site as well as with theTuneIn app available for a myriad of devices.
My people..... let's rock!
