As a Tennessee girl by birth, host Nita believes that lovin’ Hillbilly music comes pretty naturally. She also enjoys many different genres, which makes WDVX a perfect fit. Her favorite is REAL country music, which she says isn’t dead. Nita loves the steel guitar and enjoys hearing it in Hawaiian music as well as hillbilly and western swing. When not on the radio, she listens to the same kind of music you hear her play on Thursday nights – some of it old and some new.
“My mom and dad played a big role in making music a very important part of my life. Dad was a trumpet player and Mom was a self-taught pianist, so my sister and I were raised with music in the house. Some of my favorite childhood memories with my Dad were when he’d put a big stack of his country records on the record player and we’d sit up real close to the speakers and sing along while we listened. I collect old 78 and 33 1/3 records now and still get a charge out of playing them from time to time. My other passion is vintage clothing. I collect purses, shoes, boots, western wear and dresses with big full skirts for spinnin’! Yep, I’m a pack-rat!”
