Keith and Cathy Shockley travel from Knoxville, TN, to volunteer for WNCW's late-night show, ARC Overnight. This is exceptional, but what makes their story even more memorable is that Keith is legally blind, and hosts the show with Cathy working alongside him as co-producer.
Sarah Jarosz will come to WNCW's Air Studio this Friday afternoon for a live interview.
Earlier this year, she released Follow Me Down, which received a Grammy nomination for Best Engineered Album. Sarah recently played at Jazz Fest in May, Bonnaroo in June, and just wrapped up a tour with Vince Gill. She has also spent time this summer teaching at the Mark O'Connor/Berklee Summer String Program.
I have listened to WNCW for about as long as it's been on the air. I had listened to the lower end of the dial due to not really liking radio "personalities", their corny rambling and lack of musical knowledge. Once I found WNCW, it has not been changed on my truck radio. I do admit listening to WWOZ out of New Orleans online frequently when I first come home from work, but given the choice, WNCW is by far the best. Thank You.
