colorful art work for Toubab-Krewe Band
Toubab Krewe

Asheville's Toubab Krewe has their first album in nearly four years with “Stylo.” They played some tunes from it for us in a live session from the Ellington Underground last week. If you missed it, here's your chance to check out their amazing blend of West African and American Southern vibes. Plus, from the vaults, banjo master (and record label executive) Alison Brown, who played live in our studio back in 2006.

Spring has sprung, the weather is getting warmer (kind of) and our semi annual fundraiser is right around the corner! We are excited, as usual, to welcome our WNCW friends and family members to Studio B, April 8-14, 2018. Long time fans and volunteers know we celebrate these events by creating a friendly, fundraising environment complete with good eats, lots of coffee and great music. During this week we need volunteers to help answer phones and take pledges from folks who wish to support WNCW. We've been doing this for 29 years and with your help, we can keep doing it!

We are thankful for the opportunity you give us to be a part of your daily life.  We consider it a privilege that you tune in at home, in the car, at work, and wherever you go.  Our commitment to bringing a diverse and original mix of music to the airwaves remains strong. 

Welcome to Episode 32 of our exploration of some of the most notable songs to arrive in our mailboxes and inboxes lately here at grassroots radio. We’ve got everything from favorites like Wood Brothers and Calexico to the long-awaited return of North Carolina’s (and now more New Orleans’) own Squirrel Nut Zippers, several instrumental stand outs, and a Segue Of The Week with a dark classic from the band Portishead.
