Scotty Robertson and Halli Anderson in the WNCW Air Studio
WNCW Staff

Asheville based River Whyless brings to the stage Modern Folk with an Appalachian Worldbeat twist. Near the end of a year filled with significant performances, music releases, and growing acclaim, vocalist and violinist Halli Anderson joined Scotty in the WNCW studio to guest DJ and talk about musical influences and the future for the band.

If you don't have tickets to the Christmas Jam, but still want to get involved, here are some ideas...

Each year a group based in Winston-Salem seeks donated Christmas gifts that are passed on to Women and Men in the Military, while they're serving on foreign soil during the holidays.  Those serving in the Air Force, Army, Marines, and Navy, must be residents of the state of North Carolina.  This Friday Feature Interview of the Week provides those details and more.

WNCW welcomed Edward David Anderson to the airwaves on Thursday, November 19th as he toured the region in support of his second solo album, Lower Alabama: The Loxley Sessions.

Every year around this time, your WNCW hosts start prepping and cooking in the WNCW kitchen that is our great Music Library, to prepare for you a smorgasbord of songs centered around thankfulness, family, and above all, food. We've got all the meals, main & side dishes, beverages, and food groups covered -- no need to bring anything! We start the theme early in the week, but the main course, per tradition, will be Arlo Guthrie's Alice's Restaurant Massacree (celebrating its 50th anniversary this year!), served up just past Noon on Thursday.
