WNCW's Music Mix with Martin Anderson

Weekdays at 9am

Martin mixes up music from Bluegrass, Jazz, Jam bands, Singer/Songwriters, Blues, and Celtic genres to give you a crossroads of music that you won't hear anywhere else on the radio.

Features throughout his music block include:

  • Birthday/Anniversary spotlights of musicians you know, or didn’t know you knew
  • “Ten O'Clock Doc” tribute to Doc Watson Mondays at 10AM
  • Art Break at 11:30AM
  • NPR Headlines at the top of each hour
  • Occasional interviews & performances from touring artists

Rod is a Rutherford County native, now living in Winston-Salem, with a new double-disc recorded in Charlotte. Wyatt has extensive experience in Nashville's music scene, as an executive with the likes of Keith Urban and Paul Thorn, which probably adds to his reputation as a great storyteller. They both are accomplished singer-songwriters and acoustic guitarists, and they both perform Wednesday evening at Isis Restaurant & Music Hall.
