Knoxville's Classic Rock

Station Information

103.5 WIMZ has been Knoxville and East Tennessee’s number one choice for classic rock since 1979! We specialize in rock n’ roll from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s featuring artists like as Aerosmith, AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Motley Crue, Bob Seger, Guns N’ Roses, Led Zeppelin and Pearl Jam.

WIMZ also features world class personalities like morning team John Boy & Billy. The “Big Show” has been getting listeners up and going with a laugh every morning for the past fourteen years and is one of the longest running morning shows in Knoxville. Big R, WIMZ’s resident rock trivia expert and Dean of the College of Classic Rock Knowledge, helps listeners get through the workday with music that motivates. Then at 12 noon, he plays nothing but listener favorites during “The All Request Lunch.” Knoxville radio veteran Billy Kidd keeps listeners wondering “what’s next” as he puts the hammer down every afternoon. Whether it's an interesting topic or off-beat news story, BK gets people talking. His passion for motorcycles and the military, patriotism, and willingness to give back to the community are a reflection of the listeners he connects with. Jay Mac rounds out the day with the “Night Show,” where she brings her own twisted perspective on the world and serves up great musical themes like the “Southern Fix at 6,” the “80’s at 8” and the “Thunder from Down Under.”

WIMZ is proud to donate a significant amount of airtime each year to benefit dozens of non-profit organizations such as Second Harvest Food Bank through Camping for Cans, the Shiloh Riders Motorcycle Club who collect toys for kids at Christmas through the East Tennessee Toy Run, Kidney Foundation, Alzheimer's Association of East Tennessee, March of Dimes, Medic Regional Blood Center, Down Syndrome Awareness Group, Red Cross and Wounded Warrior Project.
