'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.

Get to know this great Gulf Coast Soul band from Houston! The 8-piece band has been busy these last couple years, playing 300+ gigs including NPR's Tiny Desk, The Daily Show, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. They pile in to Studio B for a session (weather permitting!) before playing in Asheville Tuesday and Wednesday, supporting Thievery Corporation at The Orange Peel.

WNCW welcomes Asheville, NC-based band TRAVERS BROTHERSHIP to Spindale, NC this afternoon. The soul/funk/rock/jam emsemble will share music from the group's up coming album "Let The World Decide," which will be released December 8, 2018.  The effort was produced at Echo Mountain Recording Studio and The Eagle Room, both located in Asheville!
