Studio B Rewind FRIDAY, December 30th at 6 PM

Dec 29, 2016

December 30th is the last Friday of 2016. Make it a special TGIF and spend it with WNCW Host Kim Clark as she re-visits two great sessions from this past June: The show will lead off with the soulful, blues rock of the Asheville band The Broadcast. After that musical treat, "settle in" for an entire session with former Be Good Tanya, Frazey Ford and her band The Quiet Revolution. Join Kim Clark this Friday at 6pm for some incredible Studio B sessions.

Join Dig! Host Kim Clark as she counts down the top 20 American garage band singles from the fertile years of 1965-1967. None of the records broke nationally, most were on regional labels, and the bands never released a full album. But if any of these records could have had better distribution, and the stars had aligned, they would have been hits. The hour will sound like the soundtrack to an alternate, slightly cooler universe! Dig! airs every Thursday evening from 8 until 9 pm.
