WNCW's Music Mix with Scotty Robertson

Monday to Thursday at noon and Fridays at 1pm

Looking for musical diversity from your radio speakers during the mid-day? Tune in for Scotty`s mix weekdays for fresh tunes and deep cuts from artists, new and old, electric and acoustic. Catch NPR news headlines at the top of the hour, and Monday through Thursday there`s always jus` a Spoonful of Blues during the noon hour. Visiting musicians often stop in to chat and play during the mid-day, either in the control room or Studio B. New Tunes at 2 gives you a sampling of the latest release from your favorite old artists and introduces you to your next favorite! There`s always a good reason to keep your radio tuned to WNCW!

Asheville has a national reputation for its thriving local music scene these days, and we welcome two rather different contributors on Tuesday afternoon. Ashley Heath is one of the area's rising stars in the Americana singer/songwriter sound, while Jordan Okrend has more of a funk and soul vibe in his band's work. We've loved playing both of their latest releases this past year or so, and they're both together with Scotty before playing together at White Horse Black Mountain on Sunday.

Chicago native Frank Bang was Buddy Guy's guitarist, and now plays with his band the Cook County Kings. He and Black Mountain's Dan Johnston stop by for a live "Spoonful of Blues" before playing White Horse Black Mountain Thursday evening.

CHARLIE PARR Live Friday the 13th at 1pm

Oct 10, 2017

This terrific guitarist covers issues of mental health and life's purpose on his latest release "Dog". His perspective is largely influenced by his time spent working with the homeless throughout his native Minnesota. Charlie will sing a few songs and chat with Scotty on Friday afternoon before playing The Mothlight in Asheville that night. He also plays Free Range Brewing in Charlotte on Saturday, and Barley's Taproom in Knoxville on Sunday.

More than just a great bluegrass trio, Swiss-American brothers Uwe and Jens Kruger and New York brother Joel Landsberg keep themselves busy with classical music collaborations (the Roan Mountain Suite), running a festival (Carolina in the Fall, 9/22-23 in Wilkesboro), and more. They visit with Scotty here on Wednesday afternoon.
