11 O'Clock Rock Offers Daytime Music on Market Square

Less than a year after Cherries Internet Cafe on Market Square closed—and took its ambitious plan to broadcast live local music online with it—a similar effort is underway in the same building by one of Cherries' former minority owners. Knox ivi, owned by former Cherries investor Joe Dickey and two others, is streaming local high-school sports and live in-studio performances by local and touring musicians at knoxivi.com. The schedule of music performances, called Eleven O'Clock Rock (each segment is broadcast live at 11 a.m.), has so far included Hudson K, Brandy Robinson, and Kirk Fleta and continues this week with Brent Feito and Lars Prillaman from Washington, D.C., and the Black Lillies. Next week: Kevin Hyfantis on Monday, Oct. 5; Terry Phillips on Tuesday, Oct. 6; Scott McMahan on Wednesday, Oct. 7; the Johnson Swingtet on Thursday, Oct. 8; and 1220 on Friday, Oct. 9.
