When Scenic City Roots debuts on March 7 at Track 29, the sister program to Nashville’s Music City Roots will follow in its footsteps as a live concert and live radio broadcast on 106.9-FM Hippie Radio. The show will also be streamed live in high-definition online at wtcitv.org and filmed for rebroadcast on Thursdays beginning in April on WTCI-TV Channel 5, Chattanooga’s PBS affiliate.
Announced earlier this month, Scenic City Roots will take place once monthly at Track 29. Shows begin at 7 p.m. and can be heard live on Hippie Radio, a Chattanooga radio station owned by Brewer Media, which also owns The Pulse.
The debut show will include four acts during the two-hour live show with one Chattanooga artist featured on each show. Bands for the March 7 show include the WTM Blues Band, The SteelDrivers, JOHNNYSWIM and St. Paul & The Broken Bones.
Summer Foxx, host of Hippie Radio’s 3 to 7 p.m. show will offer listeners the chance to win free tickets to the live show beginning on Feb. 25. Tune in and visit hippieradio1069.com for updates.
