Thursday Night the 3rd between 8pm & Midnight: NORTH MISSISSIPPI ALLSTARS - World Boogie Is Coming

The duo of Luther and Cody Dickinson keep their great groove of North Mississippi blues fused with hip-hop, alt-rock, and more going with this, their 7th release, and probably one of their best.  "World boogie is coming" was one of the favorite blessings of their father, producer Jim Dickinson, and his spirit is all over this one, along with the help of long-time friends, Lightnin' Malcolm, Duwayne and Garry Burnside,  Alvin Youngblood Hart, Robert Plant, Chris Chew, and others.

Morning Edition 9/25/13: You've Driven By It. Now Climb Up And Stay A While!

Grandfather Mountain is all dressed up for fall.

Western North Carolina is so full of beautiful places to see or fun things to do or new things to learn, that sometimes, if you live here, you miss a lot.  Grandfather Mountain is one of those places.

If you like to ski, you've driven by it. But other than thinking, "I bet there's a great view from up there!", you probably haven't stopped and 'set a spell.'

Monday Night September 23rd at 8pm: ANI DIFRANCO - Imperfectly

Monday night we celebrate Ani DiFranco's birthday with her 3rd album, 1992's Imperfectly.  With a continued emphasis on hard-hitting, deeply personal songs touching on sexuality, politics, and the rough life of a traveling indie musician, DiFranco also branched out in new directions on this one, adding outside musicians for bass drums, viola, trumpet, etc.  Always a WNCW favorite, always a Righteous Babe, Happy Birthday Ani!
