Knox Community Well Be – DJ Anam

Show Hours: Saturdays 4pm – 5pm

Hi everyone – I’m Anam (pronounced Ah-num)

Welcome to Knox Community Well Be, part of WOZO Radio 103.9 FM, Knoxville’s Community Radio station. The show has been running since March 2018, and is a show for and about local communities and community well-being as told through interviews with me by community membersIn addition to interviews, guests pick songs that best that represent the work they do or that best represents well-being as they see it.

I also firmly believe that creativity is a major factor in enhancing health and well-being, both individually and as a community. That means that I frequently have creatives of all kinds on the show to read, perform and / or talk about their work.

If you are a group or individual doing community work or are an artist and would like to be the show, contact me on Facebook at or through the website at

I look forward to hearing from you!
