The original Ruby Tuesday is above Stefano’s. I don’t think they were ever located in the pictured building which is just west of First TN (Horizon) Bank. There was a small Chili’s (Express?) for a couple of years that might have been just east of First TN (an old lady lived in her house on that spot before that - probably the last house on Cumberland Avenue).

The Ruby Tuesday above Stefano’s had a problem with their kitchen exit. The door opened up on the adjacent property (a roof top parking lot) and they couldn’t work out a deal and stay compliant with the city. So they shut it down. At least that’s the story I’ve heard.
I started UT in 1978. At that time Ruby Tuesdays was above Stefanos.

The camper was the permanent studio when they were still in their City of License, Norris, and were broadcasting from the Fox Inn rv park. Tony Lawson is a untrustworthy and dishonest person. Phil Williams is a complete failure. This is Knoxville though and Knoxville is known for its butt kissing of complete zeroes. Lawson donated nothing to the start. And to keep on topic I miss Putt Putt on Chapman Hwy., for the hole in one.
Phil Willams didn’t put in any prep work when he was on with Billy Kidd (WW) - Phil was too lazy and lacked the creativity to contribute. Billy did all of it.

Eric Zane and PW got into a fight at WIMZ.

As with COLvin Idle before him.

Anyone remember Mark’s Deli in West Town?
I forgot about Colvin. He did the news breaks for the Phil and Billy Show and was the occasional side kick in their bits. He was a decent news guy. But 103.5 has never been where I’d go to for news.

Somehow Phil is still drawing a paycheck over on Olde Kingston Pike.
