An Extra Helping of the Blue Plate Special Featuring Pistol Creek Catch of the Day Performing “Christmas Time’s A-Comin'”

Happy Holidays from East Tennessee’s Own WDVX and The Blue Plate Special!

Pistol Creek Catch of the Day is a musical ensemble based in Maryville, TN comprising guitar, fiddle, doghouse bass, tenor banjo, mandolin, maybe a ukulele and an assortment of percussion instruments (frottoir!), whistles and squeaky toys. Spectators have noted that band members Edward Harper, Bill Cabage, David Rasnake, and Carl Gombert seem to be having a lot of fun, and they often play just when the urge strikes. Like at the Blue Plate Special. Sing along with “Christmas Time’s A-Comin'” and find out more about PCCOD at…

The WDVX Blue Plate Special is Hitting the Road


Every new year brings change and in 2017 it’s going to happen at the Blue Plate Special where real live music has been entertaining you nearly every day for the past 12 years. It’s going to be good…once the dust settles!  The Visitor Center, where the Blue Plate Special stage is located, is being remodeled beginning in January to create a more useful and comfortable space for visitors and Blue Plate Special audiences. That means the Blue Plate Special live shows are going to take a break beginning January 2. You’ll still hear Blue Plate Special programs on the radio at noon, we will have live in studio guests, and we’re planning some very special Blue Plate Special Road Shows throughout the community. Thanks to all of you who are part of the show as audience members…we will miss seeing you. But we’ll be back soon. And there will be a big party when the new space is done in a couple months…so just keep listening to WDVX for news about that and the Blue Plate Special Road Shows starting in January.

Here’s the remaining Blue Plate Special schedule:

12/29 – Knox County Jug Stompers / Sam Hatmaker

12/30 – Lacy Green / Barefoot Sanctuary

12/31  – Kim Smith and David Boettcher / Cassidy Diana
