Monday Night November 4th at 8pm: GUY CLARK - Texas Cookin'

We celebrate the birthday of one of Americana's best songwriters this week with Guy's 2nd album, from 1976.  This one features an all-star cast of guests, including Waylon Jennings, Emmylou Harris, and Rodney Crowell -- all together on the same chorus, even! Johnny Gimble, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Tracy Nelson are here too.  If Guy's skills as a top tier ballad writer weren't already established, they are with with this classic.  "Take me to a barroom driver/Set me on a stool/If I can't be her man, I'm damned/If I'll be her fool."

Thursday Night the 7th between 8pm & Midnight: BOB DYLAN - Another Self-Portrait (1969-71)

Who else but Bob Dylan could release TEN volumes (and counting) of "bootleg" studio/stage recordings, and each one full of great material?  This one is centered around Self-Portrait (various folk and traditional songs) and New Morning (one of his best, under-recognized albums), but also includes outtakes & such from Nashville Skyline and work with The Band.  Check out the fine accompaniment too, from the likes of David Bromberg, Al Kooper, and George Harrison.  Brad will fit as many of these 35 songs as he can into your Thursday night mix.

Monday Night October 28th at 8pm: LOU REED - New York

We are sad to learn of the passing of Lou Reed this past weekend.  He was 71.  Reed fronted The Velvet Underground, whose late '60's albums provided a counterpoint to the "Summer of Love"-flavored and AM-oriented releases of the era.  The V.U. alone would have cemented his status as a rock 'n roll icon, but his solo career that followed brought many more dimensions to his legendary status of rebellious songwriter, musician, and singer.  His 1989 ode to his hometown kicks off an evening and week filled with Lou Reed.

Live Monday the 21st at 11am - Guest DJ's THE WOOD BROTHERS

Let's just call this "Wood Brothers Week" here at WNCW: They play Asheville Sunday night, they visit us Monday morning as Guest DJ's, and we'll spin all the songs from their beautiful release The Muse throughout this Thursday evening for the Peak of the Week.  Each of our music library's sections -- jazz, blues, country, rock, and others -- are subject to being mined by them as they pick out favorite artists of theirs to play for you.  Maybe we can coax them to play one of their own, too?
