Lightning 100’s 2005 Lookback



Air Staff 2005

After 10 years and three months high atop the 30th Floor of the L&C Tower downtown, Lightning 100 picks up stakes and moves its digs to Marathon Village — a recently renovated old warehouse in Midtown. The station would become an anchor tenant of the complex, which was in the process of being transformed from a 1900 turn-of-the-century automobile manufacturing plant into a thriving creative community.

Lightning 100 participates in a major fund raising campaign to assist victims from the recent Hurricane Katrina. A silent auction and telethon is held on-air and on eBay. Items up for bid included a Takamine guitar autographed by the Eagles, a private John Mayer Trio concert performance, and a Gibson Les Paul guitar signed by Les Paul. Donations are also taken for food and clothing items.

Lightning 100 releases a compilation sampler CD of various “Nashville Sunday Night” performances from its nine years of live broadcasts of the program from 3rd & Lindsley”.
