Studio B Rewind

Sundays at 7PM

WNCW's Studio B has been a happening place during the last twenty years, serving as the setting for nearly 2500 live performances. Some of the biggest names in music have performed there, including Doc Watson, Emmylou Harris, Jorma Kaukonen, John Mayer, the Del McCoury Band, Gillian Welch, and the Zombies. Our region's best performers have also been frequent visitors, like Tyler Ramsey, Michael Reno Harrell, Free Planet Radio, David Childers, stephaniesid, and more. During Studio B Rewind, we'll be mining our extensive Studio B archives and re-broadcasting the best performances and interviews.

We're taking a trip down to New Orleans with the brass band-meets-Mardi Gras Indian sound of Cha Wa, led by Big Chief Monk Boudreaux's grandson J'Wan.  And, from the archives, Trombone Shorty in an interview and performance from 2011.

We've got some home-grown bluegrass with Brevard-based Carolina Blue playing some tunes for us from their new album “Sounds of Kentucky Grass.” Also, the psycho-tropic folk of the Austin, Texas band The Deer live in our studio.

Studio B Rewind on May 6

May 5, 2016

This week on Studio B Rewind, we're going to devote just about the entire hour to an interview and performance by Grammy-nominated multi-instrumentalist David Bromberg. He took guitar lessons from Reverend Gary Davis, played with Bob Dylan, Jerry Garcia, George Harrison, and Jerry Jeff Walker, and is one of the world's leading violin appraisers. He covered all these subjects and more, and played some great music for us when he came to visit in 2009. 

It's an allstar cast this week, with Paul Barrerre and Fred Tackett playing live for us in 1999, Amy Ray from 2008, and the multiple IBMA-award winning Balsam Range from September of last year.
