Five months ago, during the City of Knoxville’s Patriotic Bike Parade on Market Square, I got the idea to ask if the new incarnation of WNOX could be included in other city events. One of the events I specifically had in mind was the Regal Celebration of Lights, which my wife and I attend almost every year.
Happily for me, the answer was yes. The radio station was granted permission to have a booth at the event and I was allowed to appear on stage with emcees Tearsa Smith and Bo Williams from WATE-TV.
I was slotted right after actors from Theatre Knoxville Downtown, who did a White Christmas skit similar to the one they did at the kickoff ceremony on November 4. When I reached the mic, I said that anyone familiar with the plot of White Christmas knows that the next thing on stage should be Bo Williams and me singing “Sisters” in drag.
