Live Friday the 15th at 11am: KIM RICHEY

She's co-written a big hit for Trisha Yearwood, and shown up on Dawson's Creek and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but frankly, we love singer/songwriter Kim Richey for her own catalog of terrific albums.  She plays Greenwood, SC on Thursday, and Asheville on Saturday, and spends Friday morning on the air with Martin Anderson.

Live Monday the 21st at 11am - Guest DJ's THE WOOD BROTHERS

Let's just call this "Wood Brothers Week" here at WNCW: They play Asheville Sunday night, they visit us Monday morning as Guest DJ's, and we'll spin all the songs from their beautiful release The Muse throughout this Thursday evening for the Peak of the Week.  Each of our music library's sections -- jazz, blues, country, rock, and others -- are subject to being mined by them as they pick out favorite artists of theirs to play for you.  Maybe we can coax them to play one of their own, too?

Live Friday the 25th at 1pm: DAVID OLNEY AND SERGIO WEBB

The question has been raised: "Is David Olney the Leonard Cohen of the Americana movement?"  His songs have been recorded by great artists like Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Del McCoury, Tim O’Brien, and Ann Rabson, earning him the title of one of those "songwriter's songwriters" so many of our favorites love.  He and his longtime friend Sergio Webb will join us to talk about their thematic series Body of Evidence.  They play Spartanburg on Friday night.

Tuesday the 15th at 11am: JAMES HUNTER

One of WNCW DJs' favorite artists of late is British R&B powerhouse James Hunter.  “He’s one of the best voices and best kept secrets in British R&B and soul", says Van Morrison, who hired him to be his backup singer.  His first two albums earned him two Billboard Blues #1′s and tours with Aretha Franklin, Van Morrison, Etta James, and Willie Nelson.  This year's album, Minute By Minute, is a brilliant collaboration with Daptone Records cofounder Gabriel Roth.

Thursday the 17th at 11am: SCOTT MILLER

Scott Miller is one of those artists who embody all that is WNCW more than most any other.  First fronting the V-Roys, then his backing band The Commonwealth, the Shenandoah Valley native has been a Knoxville musician for many years, but has now returned to his Virginia soil.  His new release Big Big World marks another move for him, and we'll hear more about it when Miller joins us for an interview Thursday morning before his Asheville show.

Live Monday the 26th at 1pm: BONNIE WHITMORE

Singer/songwriter Bonnie Whitmore covers the sweet side of the ruinous heartbreak side of country music pretty well; think dark tales sung by someone between Neko Case and Mary Chapin Carpenter.  She joins Joe Kendrick for an interview on her way to a Greenville show Monday night and Knoxville Tuesday.
