WNOX Street Scene, Knoxville, 1947

1947 street scene of the legendary WNOX Radio studio located on Gay Street in Knoxville. The station offered free country music shows during the noon hour, a fine tradition continued today by WDVX with the daily Blue Plate Special program. WNOX was home to Roy Acuff, Chet Atkins, Don Gibson, and many others during their formative years. Ironically, the WDVX studio is located within two blocks of where the WNOX studio once stood!
