KUHS-LP 97.9 FM, Hot Springs’ first and Arkansas’ only solar powered radio station is turning two years old! The celebration will be August 12th at 6:30 PM at 236 Ouachita Ave in Hot Springs. KUHS-LP is partnering up with a few special businesses to put on a night that is sure to be sweet. Not resting on their laurels, KUHS-LP has some big announcements to make about improving their signal to better serve the listeners of Hot Springs and streamers around the world. Come enjoy food and drink and some great live music to support Hot Springs’ solar powered community radio station.
Jimmy Davis, originally from Memphis, TN, will be breaking in the stage at the future home of SQZBX, beside the radio studios on Ouachita Avenue. Jimmy “Daddy” Davis puts on a hell of a show, bringing his infectious enthusiasm to every audience. Jimmy Davis’ songs have been recorded by Martina McBride, Restless Heart, Tommy Alverson, Reba Russell, Walt Wilkins, as well as a myriad of other recording artists. It’s Jimmy’s warmth, charisma and talent as a writer-performer that endear him to his well known peers. Jimmy Davis is a longtime fan of Hot Springs, having played here often at the Sawmill Depot back in the day. He has also played at the Arlington as part of the Keith Sykes Song Writer Festival. He has travelled more than a million miles all over the world, a true modern day troubadour. More information can be found at www.jimmydaddy.com.
SQZBX is a pizza joint and microbrewery opening up under the same roof as KUHS-LP. Cheryl and station manager Zac have been working hard on renovating the rest of the 1920’s building housing the studios, and they are very close to completion. They will be making heavy hors d’oeuvres out of the new kitchen, and giving a preview look at the dining room and bar. Drinks will be provided by longtime supporters of KUHS-LP, The Wine Rack and Spirit Shoppe, and Hot Springs’ oldest continuously operating brewery, Superior Bathhouse Brewery.
Tickets are $25 and all proceeds will go to supporting community radio in Hot Springs.
This event is made possible by Ben E. Keith, SQZBX Pizza and Beer, Low Key Arts, The Wine Rack & Spirits Shoppe, and the Superior Bathhouse Brewery. Jimmy’s appearance is sponsored by Rusty Mathis and Laura Crabtree.
