JULY 7, 2011 (Indianapolis, IN): Independently-owned and Indianapolis-based radio station 91.9 WITT-FM announces a celebration of community radio with WITTstock 2011 on Friday, July 22 at the Knights of Columbus (71st & Keystone). The family-friendly WITTstock event and two-year anniversary of WITT features a diverse lineup of local musical talent, including Tonos Triad, Emily Ann Thompson, Hogeye Navvy, Cootie Crabtree and The Rhinestones, Blue Moon Revue, and CW & The Working Class Trio.
WITTstock 2011 highlights a wealth of local talent from the Greater Indianapolis area, from the jazzpop/Eurofolk stylings of Tonos Triad, the Celtic influences of Emily Ann Thompson, to the blues-rock of CW & The Working Class Trio. WITTstock 2011 celebrates both the two-year anniversary of 91.9 WITT-FM and the beginning of WITT’s annual summer tradition showcasing the variety of culture and influences to be found in Indianapolis.
WITT is a unique, community-focused radio station that realizes the need for diverse and locally-produced programming. Powered entirely by volunteers, WITT’s community impact was recognized in 2010, as Mayor Greg Ballard presented WITT President Jim Walsh with the Community Service Award, highlighting residents strengthen their communities.
“WITT fills the void of Central Indiana’s many years without truly local radio, and the listener response has been amazing,” says Walsh. “WITTstock is a way for us to get in touch with our listeners and to present some of the tremendous talent Indiana has to offer.”
