I grew up in Spartanburg so Appalachia is in my blood. I first discovered WNCW while going to school in Clemson. I just found it by chance while flipping through stations. I've been in love ever since. I really can’t listen to any other radio station. Only WNCW understands my musical needs. In 2006 I moved to Seattle where I got an office job, and while I despise sitting behind a desk, on the bright side I am able to listen to you guys every day. Specifically, I make sure I catch Roland from noon to 3pm west coast time (3-6 EST).
The small community of Grahamtown is a community within a community - the traditional heart of the African American community in Rutherford County. Several world famous black Americans began their education in small black schools in the county from the end of the civil war to the end of segregation, not only in Rutherford County, but in thousands of small communities across the country.
WNCW will have booths at both the Asheville Wine and Food Festival this Saturday and Music on the Mountaintop over the weekend. Be sure to stop by our booth if you're at one of these festivals.
Dynamite Roasting will be joining WNCW at the Asheville Wine and Food Festival to give out samples of our very own WNCW Blend of coffee. If you haven't tried it yet, this will be a great opportunity for you to get a taste of this unique, organic coffee blend.

Those of us who live in Western North Carolina are very aware of the fact that one of the most amazing walking trails is right in our backyard. The Appalachian Trail is so convenient to the many devoted hikers in our region, that we tend to forget it isn't all just ours. The Appalachian Trail Conservancy, however, is dedicated to the care of the Trail from one end to the other, in all of the states connected by it.
