Friday, June 22nd at 1pm: TODD SNIDER

Todd Snider has been busy lately.  March saw the release of 'Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables', which Rolling Stone called "the sharpest musical response yet to the excesses of the one percent."  Then in April came 'Time As We Know It: The Songs of Jerry Jeff Walker', an homage to Snider's first musical hero.  He pays us a visit to catch up on things before his Friday night Charlotte show.

TOUBAB KREWE is rooted in the rich traditions of Mali and West Africa, but deftly weaves blues, surf-rock, and other American styles into their jams.  They've now added "festival organizers" to their to-do list, as they're putting together Carnivalito, a Black Mountain festival (July 13 & 14) that includes Donna the Buffalo, Ivan Neville, and DJ Equal.  Drew & Justin, the band's guitarist and kora player, join Martin as guest hosts to spin tunes and talk about their latest projects.

Monday, June 11th at 10am: Guest host DAVID HOLT remembers Doc Watson

David Holt accompanied Doc Watson both on and off stage from 1998 until Doc's death two weeks ago, though they first worked together (with Merle) in 1984.  Any of us who have seen Doc perform these last 14 years can credit David for that wonderful opportunity.  The multi-instrumentalist, storyteller, PBS host, and all-around roots music advocate spends an hour reminiscing about one of our greatest inspirations, spinning tunes from both Doc and some of Doc's own early inspirations.
