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!

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.

Get set for some modern day honky-tonk and roots rock from Eilen Jewell, JD McPherson and newcomer Haley Thompson-King, plus a new double disc from Luna, who fortunately decided to get back together, plus we’ll go dark with a couple picks from our nighttime sound -- a truly deep concept record from Public Service Broadcasting paired up with a classic track from Joy Division for our Segue Of The Week. DJ For A Day features WNCW midday host and Rhythm Theorem host Scotty Robertson, as we share stories of just how wrong things can go with live guests on the radio.
