Rebecca Tunes Into WNCW Because...

My husband and I started listening to WNCW while channel surfing in the upstate of South Carolina. We love the bluegrass music and have stayed listening for the other styles of music. Even though we live in Columbia, South Carolina, we always tune in to WNCW as soon as we can on I-26. We've even found that we can get the station all the way to Newberry, South Carolina.

We wish we had a station like this in Columbia, but it makes our trips to the mountains special.
