Monday Night May 19th at 8pm: MARVIN GAYE - What's Going On

Released this week in 1971, Marvin Gaye covered such challenging topics as the Vietnam War, inner city poverty, and environmentalism on this album that raised the bar on the expectations coming out of Motown.  As music critic John Bush has written, "What's Going On is not only Gaye's masterpiece, it's the most important and passionate record to come out of soul music".

Thursday Night the 22nd between 8pm and Midnight: I DRAW SLOW - White Wave Chapel

You'd think this band comes from right out of Appalachia, save for the slightest lilt in Louise Holden's singing voice.  But this band comes from Dublin, Ireland, and has recently been endearing fans of Gillian Welch, old-time music, and local festivals like Skunkfest and Merlefest with their beautiful songs and overall sound.  A new WNCW favorite!

Thursday Night the 15th between 8pm and Midnight: NICKEL CREEK - A Dotted Line

After announcing their "indefinite hiatus" back in 2007, we wondered if or when Nickel Creek would reunite for another album and/or tour.  This Spring we've been pleased to see both, and A Dotted Line was well worth the wait.  Join us as we spotlight Chris Thile, Sara Watkins, & Sean Watkins and their new release throughout the Thursday night music mix.
