We flash back 40 years this Monday night to one of 1974's biggest hits, Linda Rondstadt's multi-platinum album Heart Like a Wheel. Her California/Arizona folk roots can be heard here -- though make no mistake this was a mainstream pop/rock smash -- on memorable covers from the likes of Lowell George ("Willin'"), Hank Sr. ("I Can't Help It If I'm Still In Love With You"), J.D.

This summer, WNCW staff had the pleasure of working with Jessica Porter as a summer intern. She wrote about her experience; this is her story.
I learned in my first year at the University of North Carolina that there are three general things college students are deprived of: parental guidance, interest in the news, and transportation. Inherently, I have had the first two of those things my entire life, which led me to apply to intern at WNCW, and the latter is fulfilled by a soccer-mom Honda named Sylvia.
Asheville native Bryan Sutton is one of the hottest flatpickers around these days. He's one of the busiest too -- he's currently picking some great Doc Watson tunes with David Holt and T. Michael Coleman, gearing up to release another Hot Rize album with Tim O'Brien and co., and then there's his terrific solo release Into My Own, a favorite here at WNCW. Bryan visits with Martin on Friday morning, along with Sam Grisman on bass, Mike Barnett on fiddle, and Casey Campbell on mandolin. They play an evening show in Asheville and Saturday in Johnson City.
WNCW relies on volunteers to take our booth to various festivals and represent the station while attending the festivals. Are you interested in helping WNCW in this way? Contact Scotty Robertson at email@example.com for more details.
