WNCW's Music Mix with Roland Dierauf

Weekdays 3pm to 6pm

Roland Dierauf wanders everyday through the cultural landscape that informs contemporary music.  Starting with the roots of early blues and country, he says hello to their many quirky offspring -- bluegrass, rock, alt country, jazz, funk, international rhythms, and all the endless hybrids.  It's music as big and varied and delightful as the people who make it.  Be a part of it, weekday afternoons on WNCW.

Stephen Houseworth

“Want to hear the melting pot that’s the ongoing cultural experiment known as the United States of America? Then you should listen to the Resonant Rogues. The Asheville, N.C., group blends Balkan, klezmer, gypsy, hot jazz and old-time influences to create a genre-blending music that couldn’t happen anywhere else.” –Chris Bopst of Style Weekly. They have a few gigs in their hometown and in Charlotte before hightailing it to Colorado for much of December.

THE WALCOTTS Live Monday, November 14th at 3pm

Nov 14, 2016

They draw their primary inspiration from The Band (including their name -- can you name the song reference?), but this L.A. band has also been influenced by Chris Stapleton, HoneyHoney, Bruce Springsteen....Or as No Depression says, "Dr John and Tom Waits spend a night drinking together somewhere between New Orleans and Los Angeles. A great cross-pollination of R&B, Soul and Country".
