Jim Childs

A native Tennessean, Jim was born in Memphis, but has lived in East Tennessee since the 1970s. He possesses a large, growing and diverse collection of vinyl, which he yearns to inflict on an unsuspecting world. Old time string band, fiddlers, bluegrass, classic honky-tonk, Nashville sound, blues, R&B, rockabilly, sixties soul, gospel and more fill his thirst for things musical. A long time employee of the Knox County Library System and a graduate of the University of Tennessee in History, Jim is proud to call Knoxville home.
