Music for kids on WDVX

without comments


One of the nicest, hippest and most talented dudes in the East Tennessee scene is Sean McCollough, of both The LoneTones and the John Myers Band (and, on occasion, Evergreen Street). We wrote about him last year when he released an album for children, “This Is Our House,” and now he’s heading up a new program on local grassroots radio station WDVX-FM, 89.9 or 102.9. Here’s the press release:

Knoxville, TN- WDVX and the multi-talented Sean McCollough are teaming up for a weekly radio show, “Kidstuff,” premiering at 9 p.m. Saturday June 4 on WDVX. “Kidstuff” will be a show full of high-quality music geared the young and the young at heart. The show will present a mixture of live and recorded music and will eventually include a live audience once a month. Listeners will hear traditional music and original music from a variety of genres, cultures, and even music performed by kids themselves. Kidstuff will be both fun and educational.

“When WDVX approached me about doing a show aimed at kids, it seemed like a perfect fit. I have been performing for kids for nearly two decades, so creating programming aimed at a young audience is right up my alley,” said Sean McCollough. “Over the fourteen year history of WDVX I have always noticed how kids respond to music. ‘Kidstuff’ is the evolution of what we have been doing for a while with WDVX, especially the Blue Plate Special and presenting live music”

“We are so happy to have Sean McCollough as a host and Knoxville and East Tennessee as a home to launch this new program. We hope it reaches the kid in you,” said Program Director Tony Lawson.
