Wednesday the 2nd at 1pm: DAVID WILCOX

Asheville's David Wilcox has been making albums since 1987.  And anyone who has gotten to know him as a songwriter -- or a fellow citizen -- will tell you our world is a more positive place for them.  His latest one, Blaze, featured a few departures from his previous work, most notably the addition of producer Ric Hordinski, bassist Byron House, and drummers Joshua Seurkamp and Daniel Joseph Dorff.  Joe Kendrick talks with David about Blaze, his Musical Magazine, his Weekend at Kanuga, his upcoming Charlotte & Ashevill

Live Friday the 28th at 2pm: CATHERINE RUSSELL

The winner of numerous jazz awards since her 2006 debut, singer Catherine Russell is in the area for a rather rare concert performance in Tryon Friday evening.  Her father Luis was Louis Armstrong's longtime collaborator and music director, and her mother Carline Ray worked a lot with Ruth Brown and Mary Lou Williams among others, and Catherine herself has supported artists ranging from David Bowie to Steely Dan to Paul Simon...so we'll have one or two degrees of separation from just about everyone Friday afternoon!  Her new r

Live Friday the 21st at 11am: AARON BURDETT

This week Studio B welcomes two great regional acts with albums being released this week...Saluda's Aaron Burdett returns for another live session, this time with his 5th album, but first on Asheville's Organic Records.  The album features a who's who of great area talent, and, with the exception of a new version of his "Going Home to Carolina" (which won Our State magazine's "Carolina Songs" songwriting contest), all new original material from this great wordsmith.

Live Monday the 17th at 11am: TONY JOE WHITE

The voice, and the groove, and the imagery, all conjure up the swampy bayou blues for which Tony Joe White has become known.  Since his debut in 1969, which featured his first hit "Polk Salad Annie", White has written and recorded timeless songs, whether for himself or for others such as Elvis Presley, Dusty Springfield, Hank Williams, Jr., and Tina Turner.  "Rainy Night in Georgia": that's him.  His latest release is called Hoodoo, and we are honored to welcome White to WNCW for a live chat and a few songs.

Live Thursday the 13th just past 11am: THE CROW QUILL NIGHT OWLS

We had such a good time with Blind Boy Chocolate and the Milk Sheiks last month, we thought we'd bring in another vintage jugband/stringband from Asheville this week: the Crow Quill Night Owls.  Kit "Stymee" Stovepipe has a wonderful knowledge of 1920's and '30's tunes and styles, and he's joined by Windy City Alex on the tenor banjo, banjo-lele and kazoo, Baylin Adaheer on the washtub bass, and others.  They play 5 Walnut in Asheville pretty regularly, and are at the Emerald Lounge on Valentine's Day.
