Let's kick off September with a blast of live blues! We will be live on the air with the Nick Moss Band from Charlotte's Neighborhood Theatre on Friday, September 1.  Moss explains his band's passion: "While modern and progressive blues has been an element to explore and incorporate into our shows, everything we do is based on traditional blues. Blues is first and foremost an American African art form and is America's gift to the world. Whether or not people realize it or acknowledge it, the root of all popular music goes back to the blues.”

In this episode, we run the gamut from artists who are brand new on the scene to longstanding, award-winning favorites. This batch of music tends towards the jazzy, bluesy and poppy side of WNCW’s music mix, and begins with an artist who is returning to an inspiration some 40 years on, now bringing elements he never yet dared to his sound. We’ll feature a Segue Of The Week matching a new artist from Australia with a band that has evoked America’s Southwest for decades, and a lot more.

Daniel Coston will visit with Mike Dew during this week's Saturday Night House Party.  He will talk about his new book on the Double Door.
