Morning Edition on May 1st: 'How To Cure Your Child With Food' By Kelly Dorfman

Is your child a picky eater...have a lot of tummy aches...or ear aches...or can't sleep...or has ADD...or just temper tantrums?  As parents, most of us have grown up with the idea that no matter what the problem, you take your child to the pediatrician or family physician and it will be diagnosed and fixed with a pill.

Kelly Dorfman, MS, LND, has a better idea...Why not check to see if the problem might be as simple as a food allergy?

Monday Night April 29th at 8pm: GEORGE JONES - My Very Special Guests

"The King of Broken Hearts", "No Show Jones", "Possum"....whatever you call him, George Jones was one of the greatest singers in country and any genre of music, with #1 hits from the '50's through the '90's.  As he was known for such outstanding duets with other great singers over the years (most notably his former wife Tammy Wynette), we continue our tribute to Jones Monday night with his 1979 album of duets with Waylon, Willie, Emmylou, Mavis, and others that you'll recognize and/or be surprised to recognize.  The album was reissued in a 2-CD set in 2005; we've got the original LP, plus s

Live this Monday the 29th at 4: JAMES McMURTRY

Is there a musician that captures the conscience of early-21st Century America better than James McMurtry?  We at WNCW are skeptical there could be.  With his hard-hitting arsenal of biting, tell-it-like-it-is prose, he is one of our most requested songwriters.  As another of our favorites, Drive-By Trucker Patterson Hood says, “McMurtry might be the best topical writer performing right now."  We welcome him back to Studio B before his Tuesday night Asheville show.

Live Friday the 3rd at 3pm: FRANK SOLIVAN & DIRTY KITCHEN

"Food and music bring people together" is the motto of Frank Solivan.  We like the way this guy thinks!  And picks... He and his DC/VA band Dirty Kitchen serve up a live set of bluegrass and more before heading to East TN for shows in Knoxville and Johnson City.  Their new release On the Edge (Compass Records) is getting strong reviews, and they were recently nominated for an IBMA Emerging Artist award.  Solivan is also known for his cooking classes, and his caprese salad in particular.  What's he bringing to Studio B?  Tune in...

Thursday Night the 2nd between 8pm & Midnight: THE MAVERICKS - In Time

If you can maybe picture Roy Orbison as a Cuban-American, fronting a band that draws from Hank Williams as much as the Sir Douglas Quintet, with a fresh new release, then you get an inkling of what our Thursday night music mix has in store for you.  Raul Malo and The Mavericks are back after a 10 year hiatus, and their new album In Time is your Peak of the Week.

Live this Friday at 4pm: THE APRIL SESSIONS

The April Sessions is a quartet of familiar Asheville musicians, essentially a jazz piano trio with Dobro.  Billy Cardine, Chris Rosser, Zack Page and River Guerguerian came together for a benefit concert a couple years ago (The Odyssey Community School in Asheville), and were subsequently inspired to record an album that April that was, according to their liner notes, "imaginative, live, and without the use of a click track."  No question they'll feel right at home during their live session in Studio B!  Their CD release show is Saturday night at The Altamont.
