Spindale Cycle™

Mondays at 8pm

A classic album played in its entirety, because some albums are meant to be played all the way through. (Regrettably, due to Recording Industry Association of America restrictions, The Spindale Cycle is not available online)

The Beatles "Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band" -- We wrap up our longtime tradition of Monday Spindale Cycles with what many consider the greatest rock album of all time. It was indeed the first rock LP to receive an Album of the Year Grammy, and is widely considered a first for concept albums, Art Rock, Progressive Rock, and the Album Era. June 1st marks the 50th anniversary of its release, and we’ll mark it as the kickoff to our 50th anniversary celebration of the Summer of Love, too (stay tuned for details on that!) 

On Monday, May 15, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's classic album Will the Circle Be Unbroken will be the featured album on Spindale Cycle.  We have just two more albums before we wrap up this Monday tradition!  This album is one of our most treasured. Sander will fill the hour with the 2nd half of this epic collection of guests such as Doc Watson, Merle Travis, Maybelle Carter, & Vassar Clements.

Join WNCW host Sander Morrison this Monday night at 9:00 as we celebrate the 46th anniversary of Woodstock! The Woodstock Music & Art Fair—informally, the Woodstock Festival or simply Woodstock—was a music festival, billed as "An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music".

Monday, February 9th is the anniversary of the Beatles first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, certainly one of the most important musical pop-culture moments in our history. Join us this Monday as we celebrate this historic event with an evening with the Beatles, starting at 8:00 pm with "Please Please Me" as our "Spindale Cycle" feature, to be followed by a night of Beatles original songs, covers by other artists, their individual solo projects, and more. It's a night of Beatlemania, only on WNCW. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!

Before Wilco and Son Volt, there was Jeff Tweedy and Jay Farrar and their late-'80's alt-country band Uncle Tupelo.  Though they didn't last long before going their separate ways, they recorded one of the most defining albums of WNCW in our first year, No Depression.  As music critic Jason Ankeny writes, "for all of the record's doleful cynicism -- virtually every cut nods toward dashed hopes, broken promises, and paralyzing fear -- there's an undeniable electricity afoot as well; by channeling the mournful clarity of country into the crackling fury of punk, No Depression
