We'll listen to Fireside Collective burnin' up Studio B right after the 4th of July, playing tunes from their album Life Between the Lines – and a couple of surprising covers. Also, in celebration of the new album by the Los Angeles indie band Dawes, we'll jump in our time machine and check out a 2012 session with them.

People who dream of working in radio and television are told, as soon as they begin studying the intricacies of broadcasting, that they’ll need to complete an internship if they truly want to work in the business. Most station coordinators want people to have solid, real-life experience in the biz before they’ll consider taking a chance on hiring new employees.

Join Local Color Host Renee Denton for a Studio B Session, Monday, July 23rd, with the Asheville Indie Duo, TINA AND HER PONY. These classically trained musicians share signature sounds of delicate, haunting harmony and exposed instrumentation on the cello, tenor ukulele and acoustic guitar. They're inspired by artists like Doc Watson, Joni Mitchell, Bonnie Raitt, Nick Drake, as well as Appalachian musicians such as Loretta Lynn, The Carter family, Elvis Presley, Radiohead, Russian composers and yes... Johnny Cash! This is gonna be a good one.

eTown Host and Co-founder, Nick Forster, talks with WNCW's Program Director, Joe Kendrick, about the show eTown, the upcoming event eTown On The Road with Josh Ritter & Mandolin Orange, being part of the band Hot Rize and more.
