WNCW will be in the music kitchen all day long this Thanksgiving, cooking up a mix of songs covering every taste and course. Arlo Guthrie’s “Alice’s Restaurant Masacree” airs at Noon with Joe Kendrick, and again at 8pm with Rob Daves. It might be our favorite day of programming, and we’ve got a place at the table for you! Join us all day long, and help yourself to some fine appetizers we'll be serving up in the days leading up to it. We at WNCW are very thankful for your support and community.
Daniel Coston will join Joe Kendrick as a guest DJ on Tuesday, November 19th at noon. They will discuss his most recent book release and spin some music from the artists included in North Carolina Musicians.
Sweet Claudette is an Asheville quartet made up of members of The Honeycutters (Amanda Platt), Now You See Them, and The Moon and You. They describe themselves as a country Motown band, who formed out of a women's songwriter showcase in 2009. They make their first WNCW appearance this Wednesday morning with Martin Anderson.
You know'em, you love'em, you'll hear'em. They're not one but TWO of WNCW's favorite singer/songwriter/pickers, and they play not one but TWO nights in Asheville this week. Songs from their new collaboration Memories and Moments, and funny jokes, and matching bowler hats, live in Studio B this Thursday.
Leave it to Susan Werner to successfully weave both humor and serious passion into an album that centers around agrochemicals, climate change, and sustainable agriculture. The singer/songwriter with deep Iowa farm roots does so on her latest project Hayseed, and she'll talk with us about it this Thursday afternoon in advance of her Asheville concert.
This '72 album is truly "Dedicated To a Brother: Duane Allman", and captures the band both shortly before Duane's untimely death in October of '71, and with some choice recordings made by the surviving members in the following months. Somehow, they were able to not only come back together and continue hittin' the note, but put together some of their strongest material, in loving tribute to Gregg's, and the rest of the band's, brother. Celebrate Duane's birthday this week.
Amos Lee's insightful songwriting and soulful vocals are as strong as ever on this, his fifth release. He moves in more of an Americana direction on this one, which was in fact recorded in Nashville, and features a number of local heavyweights like Jerry Douglas, Alison Krauss, and Patty Griffin. No question his soul, jazz, and rock influences will come through in our eclectic Thursday night mix too, though!
She's co-written a big hit for Trisha Yearwood, and shown up on Dawson's Creek and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but frankly, we love singer/songwriter Kim Richey for her own catalog of terrific albums. She plays Greenwood, SC on Thursday, and Asheville on Saturday, and spends Friday morning on the air with Martin Anderson.
