We recently aired an interview Martin Anderson did with Richard Thompson - RT as he is known to his many fans, remains one of WNCW's most revered songwriters and guitarists. We've created a podcast so you can listen to it again or check it out if you missed it. His new music will be featured on Peak of the Week, Thursday night, at 9pm with Renee Denton.

Yes she's the Texan fiddler married to Jason Isbell with her latest album recorded in Nashville by producer Dave Cobb. But throw out all your presumptions of what she'll sound like, because Amanda likes to keep you on your toes, which is one of the things we love about her. "I wanted the songs to have atmosphere,” Shires says. “That the album was going to be sort of poppy, and that I was doing that to bring some sunshine into the world, cause it’s pretty dark right now.” Her busy tour schedule rolls her through Asheville on Friday night.

Studio B Rewind Host Kim Clark will share the "philosphunk" style of local singer-songwriter Samara Jade, along with her fellow musicians, this Sunday on SBR, at 7pm. We'll hear harmonious tunes from Jade's new album Wave of Birdsong. And, Kim Clark has chosen another fantastic session out of the WNCW Studio B Vault. We'll go all the way back to 2001 and listen to music from Modereko - a band led by Bruce Hornsby's and Phil Lesh's drummer John Molo. Our host says it's gonna be smokin' good!
