The Blue Plate Special served up a tasty menu today (a daily LIVE radio broadcast at WDVX, which is hosted in the Knoxville Visitor’s Center.)

I played here a few years ago and was delighted to have the opportunity to do so again!

And even more cool, the Visitors Center sports an umbrella collection (whether these are left behind, or offered for unprotected tourists…it is still surprising and thoughtful!)
