Enter to Win - Choose Your Adventure

Sep 19, 2016

WNCW's Fall Fund Drive is here, and we are drawing one lucky listener's name to win their choice of two vacation packages. Everyone who donates to the station is automatically entered to win either the Napa Valley Epicurean Adventure or the Costa Rica Getaway packages. Both include airfare from the continental United States. You don't have to pledge to enter the drawing, but we hope that you will renew your membership or join us for the first time as we get set for the on-air portion of the fund drive on October 2-8th here at listener-powered radio WNCW!

This Nashville quintet has been compared to an Americana Fleetwood Mac, and channels Pete Seeger, Appalachian string bands, and today's indie-rock talents. Following a Rhythm Roots & Reunion appearance, they swing into NC for a show at the Isis Restaurant & Music Hall in West Asheville on Thursday evening, where we'll catch them for a live pre-show interview and performance!
