'Gospel Roots of Rock and Soul', hosted by Cece Winans, will air on WNCW-FM 88.7 every Tuesday night in February between 8-9pm.  It is a four-part documentary series illustrating the influence of Black Gospel on early rock and soul music. The hour examines the history and foundation of Black gospel from spirituals and how those songs informed the gospel music of the great gospel quartets including The Dixie Hummingbirds, The Pilgrim Travelers, The Golden Gates, The Caravans, and The Soul Stirrers featuring Sam Cooke.

The mountains of North Carolina are rich in music traditions, both old and new, but no other musical community’s roots reach as far back in this region’s heritage as those of the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians. To their ancient ceremonial music, the Cherokee have added new traditions in bluegrass, old-time, and gospel music.
