A new MTSU multimedia show entitled Local Color is set to launch in February on MTTV and WMTS 88.3 FM along with a complementary bi-monthly column in Sidelines.

The weekly series will provide interviews and music from the national music scene along with talent on the local level as well. 

“We’ll have live performances from student artists in the local community, said Lee Miller of Local Color Productions. We’ll also have painters and poets to have a variety show motif but informative,” developer Lee Miller explained.

Miller noted the goal of Local Color is to help MTSU students establish contacts in their respective field.

“We want to shine a spotlight on the local artists and students and stress the importance of making business contacts in Nashville. Most are willing to help when asked.”

To celebrate the beginning of the show, a concert called “January Jam” will take place at 6 p.m. Jan. 22
at Cannery Ballroom in Nashville. It will feature 10 bands consisting of EverGreen, Stanley Adkins, The Corbitt Brothers Greg Humpreys and Molly Kummerle’s Paper Tiger among others.

Footage from the concert will premiere on the first installment of Local Color.

The event will feature a canned food drive and tickets are $10 with a food donation or $15 at the door and can be purchased via or to pre-order tickets, Miller can be contacted at

I don't want any of my tax dollars going to nuclear weapons, we don't alway get what we want. We need to remember a mind is like a parachute it only functions when open.
These are young people learning how to integrate into society, when they become successful they enrich all of our lives by being good at what they do. We need to be supportive and sometimes that costs money. Certainly it is better than giving a tax break to multi millionaires, that will increases the deficit, and is probably going to risk our country's credit rating. And to top it off there are no economists out there saying it will do anything but hurt our recovery Again I say a mind is like a parachute it only functions when open

@publius... well said.
@Sprtman... What tax dollars are you referring to? The ones that go to MTSU, or the ones that went to my grant/scholarship?? I personally think Bob Marley was way too conservative, but my personal beliefs have nothing to do with the curriculum offered by state funded schools... I chose a degree program that was offered, and recieved a federal grant so that I could enroll. I then earned a scholarship by completing a predetermined number of credit hours with a specefic G.P.A. You would need to take your argument up with someone much more powerful than me.
However... Even though I think your argument is an angry, assinine attempt to discredit something you know absolutely nothing about, I applaud it!!!
The right to argue is fundemental to democracy!!!
Everyone has a voice and a right to be heard. This concert has everything on the bill... from lesbian poets to staunch right-wing NRA fanatics and I love every one of them!!! Come on out and tell us how wrong we are. I truly welcome dissenting opinions.
