"We'll get into some authentic Mississippi hill country blues with the Cedric Burnside Project in a session from the summer of 2015. Cedric began playing drums at age 13 behind his grandfather RL Burnside," said Rewind Host Kim Clark. "He and his childhood friend guitarist Trenton Ayers were touring in support of the album Descendants of Hill Country when they stopped by to play live for us at WNCW. We'll also feature a 2006 interview and performance by one of our favorite singer songwriters, Slaid Cleaves."

You can give your own groovy hi-fi a rest and let Kim take over for an hour with early records by Steve Marriott and the Guess Who. She'll feature fabulous album cuts by Bob Dylan, Buffalo Springfield, the Chambers Brothers and the Five Americans. Our Dig! host will also showcase southern soul by Billy Stewart and Clarence Murray plus she'll play a handful of garage band 45s, some Rolling Stones, the Attack, the Creation and more. Can you dig it? Yes, you can baby! It's Dig! Thursdays at 8pm on WNCW 88.7 and wncw.org.
