Thursday Night the 4th between 8pm & Midnight: STEVE EARLE - The Low Highway

One of WNCW's favorite songwriters, Steve Earle releases The Low Highway on April 16th.  We'll give you a great preview of it this Thursday as we spin each tune from it throughout the evening's mix.  Technically "Steve Earle and the Dukes (and Duchesses)", this is Earle's 15th studio album.  If there's a theme on this one, it's endless road traveling.  As he writes in the liner notes, "I've been on every interstate highway in the lower forty-eight states by now and I never get tired of the view."

Live Friday the 29th at 3pm: THE FOGHORN STRINGBAND

We are excited to spark up Studio B Friday with our favorite Portland, OR old-time group, the Foghorn Stringband!  Actually they're one of our favorites regardless of home.  They play the old way, the way stringbands played on Southern radio stations back in the '30s.  Caleb Klauder and company come back to Spindale on their way to play Asheville Friday and Knoxville Saturday.
