Off the Couch: Make Music Day gets all involved

A Wednesday show by The Bohannons will serve as a video shoot for the first single from their next album. Footage shot by the crowd on cellphones will be used for the video.

BARRY COURTER: Lisa, Tuesday is Make Music Day and here's the part that caught my eye: It's free, and musicians of any age or skill level can participate. I qualify on all three counts. I've told you I can't play the radio, so this event is perfect for me.

LISA DENTON: You're in luck. As part of Make Music Day, Community Karaoke starts at noon at Miller Plaza, or you could opt for a ukulele lesson at 2:30 p.m. at the Chattanooga Public Library. You don't come across as a "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" kind of guy, but you might surprise me. For your falsetto, you could channel the sound you made when you saw that rat in your rafters.
