Friday, September 7th at 11am: THE DEL MCCOURY BAND

For fifty years, Del McCoury's music has defined authenticity for hard core bluegrass fans.  And yet, he and his band also have that knack for appealing to music fans that merely flirt with the genre of Del's former bandleader Bill Monroe.  Take the band's recent work with David Grisman, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Keller Williams...then there's that "motorcycle song"....

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).
