Knox Community Well Be – DJ Anam
Show Hours: Saturdays 4pm – 5pm
Hi everyone – I’m Anam (pronounced Ah-num – it’s a Scots Gaelic cobbled word for
those of you asking), one of WOZO’s newest DJs.
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, particularly (but not
exclusively) East Knoxville, as told through interviews with me by the individuals and
groups who are making a positive impact working in and with their local communities.
In 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 writers, poets,
spoken word artists and other artists on the show to read and / or talk about their work.
If you are a group or individual doing local community work (though sometimes we have
folks outside of Knoxville) or are an artist and would like to be the show, contact me on
Facebook at www.facebook.com/knoxcommunitywellbe or through the website at
I look forward to hearing from you!
