WUTK Fundraiser on College Radio Day 2017, Fri. October 6th! Donate $ to station & receive prizes!

Friends of WUTK and college radio, get ready for another College Radio Day! This event supports college radio stations across the country, and with your help we will continue to see college radio thrive and be an important training ground and educational experience for the next generation of broadcasters! Long live college radio!

“The aim of College Radio Day is to raise a greater, international awareness of the many college and high school radio stations that operate around the world by encouraging people who would not normally listen to college radio to do so on this day. It is hoped that those people who do tune in like what they hear and become regular listeners. The organizers of College Radio Day believe that college radio is one of the last remaining bastions of creative radio programming, free from the constrictions of having to be commercially viable, and a place where those involved in its programming believe passionately in its mission. College radio is the only free live medium brave enough to play unsigned, local, and independent artists on a regular basis.

Put simply, college radio is an important part of the media landscape because of its unique and fearless programming.

Please help us, help college radio! We are an all-volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit charity dedicated to supporting college radio in all its forms! 

WHY? Because college radio is one of the last remaining bastions of creative radio programming, free from the constrictions of having to be commercially viable, and a place where those involved in its programming believe passionately in its mission. College radio is the only free live medium brave enough to play unsigned, local, and independent artists on a […]

Knoxville Theatre Club presents: “Cindy & Ella” @ Modern Studio

The Knoxville Theatre Club presents the inaugural performance of “Cindy & Ella”, a dark interpretation on the classic Cinderella story.

“Cindy and Ella” centers around young Cindy Wicket, stranded in the lifeless heart of Dust Bowl-era Oklahoma and reeling from the traumatic death of her mother. Cindy is on the brink of madness when her scheming Aunt Eudora arrives, and a turbulent battle of w


its and wills ensues. Recommended viewing age is 13 or older due to allusions of adult situations and staged violence.
