Melony Dodson is much more than just a local public radio host – she’s a Knoxville institution. For the past decade, she’s enriched the lives of listeners in eastern Tennessee with music that bends genres and stretches across time. Lately, she’s shifted her focus to music written and performed by women. In this opus, Garrett speaks with his former colleague about her programming choices, gender equity in classical music, and how women and men can be allies in this type of work. In the prelude, Garrett and Scott discuss their relationship with the #MeToo movement. The episode ends with a jingle that Melony and Garrett performed live, on-air, during a WUOT Member Drive.
