Nov. 20, 2010 - PRLog -- On-air personality, Tommy Cotter keeps things going at WUTC-FM 88.1 between the hours of 8 pm and midnight. He offers a blend of eclectic musical styles - some nights you'll hear gritty blues, other evenings it's a Leonard Cohen set in between the ever popular Beatles, Neil Young, and Santana. But, no matter what he chooses to send out over the air waves, there's sure to be something you most likely won't ever hear on commercial radio.

Where else but public radio can you hear someone like, "A Man Called Bruce" (a songwriter based in Cleveland, TN)? According to, the artist is scheduled to appear on Mr. Cotter's show on Wednesday, November 24th at 8 pm, to play live on the air and talk about his upcoming concert and the release of his new CD entitled, "Tennessee." Of course, you won't hear someone like this on commercial radio because he's not signed to a major record label.

Since its humble beginnings in the 1970's, National Public Radio has been a pioneer in the presentation of news, music, and the arts. Their only agenda is to serve the people of our Great Nation in a way that enriches, informs and empowers its listeners.

It's really thanks to people like Tommy Cotter (a musician himself) who are willing to throw convention out the window and provide us with rare glimpses into the heart of American music, that make NPR and its affiliate stations true national treasures. Our support of this noble institution should be at the forefront of our efforts to maintain balance in the field of broadcasting. Mr. Cotter, WUTC-FM 88.1 and others at National Public Radio are the champions of broadcast media.

"A Man Called Bruce" will also be performing live in concert at Bradley Square Mall in Cleveland, TN from 7 to 9 pm on Saturday, November 27th.
