Monday Night the 18th at 8pm -- JOHNNY WINTER

This weekend marked the 45th anniversary of Woodstock, and earlier this summer we lost one of its highlight acts, the fiery blues guitarist and singer Johnny Winter.  We'll remember both on Monday night with Winter's blazing self-titled debut, which also came out in 1969.

Thursday Night the 21st between 9pm & Midnight: LEVON HELM BAND - Midnight Ramble Sessions Vol. 3

The driving force behind so many classics from The Band was known for hosting great multiple act shows (and potlucks!) at his famous barn home in Woodstock, NY, called Midnight Rambles.  We've enjoyed spinning you tunes from this new, eclectic volume, featuring Chris Robinson, Allen Toussaint, Amy Helm, and of course the humble host himself among others in the spotlight. Levon's spirit lives on here at WNCW.
