Greetings and welcome to episode eight of WNCW’s new music podcast, On The Way Up. Today we get in the time machine for a trip back to the 1960s, jazz style, we make a couple stops in North Carolina, dive into one of our perennial favorites Tedeschi Trucks Band and their new live double disc, and for our “Segue Of The Week”, we go from new Canadian soul to some latter day doo-wop and glam. It really works, just wait for it.

In this episode, we get to a couple of great regional releases, dive into the latest from one of our all-time favorites in Marty Stuart, plus get an ear for the return of iconic indie band The Feelies, and we’ll go back to the early 1970s for a big hit on our “Segue Of The Week”. There’s also the segment “DJ For A Day” where I show a bit of what life behind the microphone is like, this week going back to the Purple Prose theme with a juicy promotional piece to give you a case of the old eye-rolls.
