Bonnaroo - So much to see, so much to do, it's truly impossible to do it all! We're very grateful to our hosts, Mason Jar Media and to the Roo Radio Compound and Hay Bale Studios for their hospitality.

I caught up with Steve Gunn for a quick interview to discuss his new release on Matador Records, "Eyes on the Line"! Keep on eye on WNCW.org to see when the interview airs at 9pm Tuesday during the evening mix. Photo courtesy of KRK Systems.

It was very exciting to interview Sara Watkins! We talked about her new album "Young in all the Wrong Ways" which can be pre-ordered and how much fun she had making the video for "Move Me", the first single from the album. After her set on Sunday followed by an all-star jam with The Bluegrass Situation, she got a lot of buzz--deservedly so!
