Isothermal Community College

It’s nearly impossible to explain the exceptional talents of EmiSunshine, the 14-year-old singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Madisonville, TN. While the music of this “modern-day Janis Joplin” has been described as “old-timey,” she adds her own unique, contemporary blend of roots music that is equal parts Americana, bluegrass, gospel, and country, with a sprinkling of blues, delivering vivid emotion with every spirited yet haunting note. She'll be at the Isothermal Community College Performing Arts Center, Saturday, October 6th. Showtime is at 7:30pm  

A part of Isothermal Community College is The Foundation Performing Arts and Conference Center, where each season a fantastic lineup of guest performers visit the area to perform.  WNCW's Friday Feature Interview of the Week had a visit from Foundation Director- Russell Wicker on August 3, 2018.  Listen as Wicker goes over the 2018-19 lineup, featuring some familiar names in the music business. 

WNCW 88.7 FM and The Foundation will again present “Goin’ Across the Mountain Live” in honor of WNCW’s acclaimed Saturday afternoon bluegrass show. Headlining this year will be Rhonda Vincent and the Rage. Opening the show will be Carolina Blue, a Brevard, NC based, traditional bluegrass and gospel band.

People who dream of working in radio and television are told, as soon as they begin studying the intricacies of broadcasting, that they’ll need to complete an internship if they truly want to work in the business. Most station coordinators want people to have solid, real-life experience in the biz before they’ll consider taking a chance on hiring new employees.
