BLACK ROBIN HERO Live Thursday, March 16th at 4pm

Mar 10, 2017

Two Asheville rock acts celebrate new releases on Saturday at Isis in West Asheville: Black Robin Hero and David Earl. We've got Black Robin Hero -- the union of songwriter Matt Lane and two former restaurant coworkers who realized their shared love for making music -- coming in to Studio B for their first live session here on Thursday.

Super Pickers Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley stop by Goin’ Across The Mountain Saturday, March 11.  Join Dennis Jones in the 1:00pm hour for all the news about their new album, touring and what’s going on in the Wide World of Bluegrass and Acoustic Music.

WNCW Music Director Martin Anderson just sent a message to our promo department at WNCW Studios. If all goes well, we will feature a surprise LIVE session from the Queen City later today. Lee Fields and The Expressions will light up the Neighborhood Theater in Charlotte, NC Thursday afternoon sometime between 4 and 5pm. We'll be broadcasting the interview/performance LIVE on WNCW 88.7 FM.  Fields is sometime called "Little JB" because of his physical and vocal resemblance to James Brown. Stay tuned for some soul, funk, rhythm and blues!

Host Kim Clark says we're in for another great trip down memory lane this week. "We'll hear Abigail Washburn and Kai Welch live in Studio B performing in early 2012, right after Abigail's album City of Refuge had been voted into WNCW's top 10 for the previous year," said Clark. "We'll also get funky with Asheville's Empire Strikes Brass playing live in our studio just last month in support of the band's new album Theme for a Celebration." Studio B Rewind, FRIDAYS on WNCW-FM or wncw.org.

You don't have to worry about sorting through all those 45s deciding what to play in your car record player like Muhammad Ali did, just tune to WNCW at 8pm and let Kim Clark play those groovy 1960s records! We'll listen to album cuts by Paul Revere & the Raiders (that later became a bluegrass staple for Jimmy Martin), Soft Machine, the Doors, Sam & Dave, and the Bobby Fuller Four; 45s by We the People, the Coachmen, and the Palace Guards; an Otis Redding UK-only hit; plus the Zombies, Dragonfly, Sagittarius, Southwest FOB, and more.
