Susan Williams | Political Analyst | Oct 24th

Susan Richardson Williams got everyone’s attention when she brought up the upcoming election.  Back in the dark ages we use to vote in class you and you could call the election based on the results. Us kids voted the way we heard our parents were going to vote and right or wrong I don’t know of a time when it didn’t work. Why did they stop doing that?  My kids never had this.

The Kiwanis joined us and will be back with us this week. The group of Democrats in the room can get downright ugly!  Down boys, majority wins and eventually you will get your turn. 

I will say this has been one of the uglier campaigns and I for one will be glad when the election will be over, regardless of who wins.  Of course, I am fairly confident my guys are going to win!

Our annual Knoxville Oktoberfest event was a success! We will have to wait and see what our total numbers will be for the event, however everyone really enjoyed themselves and we are already planning for next year!

Next week Chris Hoosier is bringing us Bradley Reeves with Cinegraphic Archives and Preservation. He has captured rare reels of Mary Costa, Roy Acuff, smoky mountains home movies, rare footage of WNOX Midday Merry Go Round from 1943 – 1956. Home movies of downtown Knoxville 70 years ago, including first movies of Chet Atkins.  This would be a great one to bring a guest.
