WMOT/Nashville Presents The JBE Artist Revue








“As anyone who has ever talked to me knows, creating and presenting radio content is my first love and I’ll jump at any chance to do it at any time,” comments Barton. “Since I’ve also been trying to work with WMOT PD Jessie Scott for the last two decades, ’MOT’s Tuesday Night Special slot seemed like the natural place to try out this idea. It’s also thrilling for me to have Ellie along on this ride. Big thanks to Jessie for giving me the opportunity to indulge myself.”


“Having attended several of the Jack Barton Entertainment monthly industry presentations, I have been so impressed with the bands and interviews,” adds Scott. “Since Jack and I have been conspiring to work together for decades, this is the perfect opportunity to partner, and dig a little deeper into some of the artists they have presented. We welcome Jack and Ellie to bring the JBE Artist Revue to the airwaves and beyond.”


The JBE Artist Revue airs live next Tuesday, January 25 at 7 p.m. CST on WMOT and can be heard on the web at
