As a child, Wendy Smith would lie in bed with the radio and listen to all the different stations and music she could pick up. She loves music, all kinds of music, but has a special love for traditional Irish. Many years ago, she heard some acquaintances playing traditional Irish tunes at a gathering and was hooked. The melodies were what she’d been hearing in her head for years and can never get enough of it.
Wendy attends the Irish session in Knoxville on a regular basis and is on the board of Traditional Irish Arts of Knoxville. She was also the singer in an Irish group called Finnegan’s aWake for 8 years.
“It is my honor to be able to host a show on WDVX and share this music with listeners across the world.”
