Raven Records Part Uno

Raven Records (Jay Nations and his band of merry miscreants) was instrumental in supporting the Knoxville music scene/musicians, firstly by providing regular employment for a rotating cadre of probably otherwise only semi-employable local musicians, secondly by advertising in local music/entertainment rags, and thirdly by providing sponsorships for programming on WUTK.

Here are two donor spots from around 1986-87.
The first features Jay's gimmick of handing out the lyrics to Louie Louie to patrons:

The second features a guest appearance by The Clash's drummer Topper Headon (Jay, how did you arrange that one?):
