Happy Friday! We're on our sixth day of our Fall Fundraiser and we have a very special offer for folks who make a pledge today, Friday, October 26th. Your donation, today, to WNCW, will automatically enter you in a contest to win a VIP Warren Haynes Christmas PreJam Package. It includes one pair of tickets to the Christmas PreJam & Jam and lodging at the Renaissance Hotel. The contest ends at 7pm. Thanks to all of you who have already pledged your support and volunteered during this fund drive. We truly have the best fans in the world and the best station in the nation!

We cannot express how thankful we are to everyone who participated in this year's Fall Fundraiser. The support and the love of WNCW fans, members, volunteers, staff, friends and family was overwhelming! We'll have more pics and lots of updates, as the funds are still coming in today. Again, thank you all from the bottom of our hearts! By the way, this is an image of "The Tones." This was their first time volunteering at WNCW. They are Monotone, Coppertone, Sparkletone and Beltone. They helped make it happen, along with more than 120 other volunteers.

Since 2004 or so, we’ve brought you a New Year’s Eve re-broadcast of Warren’s annual gathering of musicians from the eve of his big Christmas Jam in Asheville. After the surprise snowstorm that canceled this month’s Pre-Jam, we thought we’d take this opportunity to bring you a revue of some of our favorite Pre-Jam highlights of the past 18 years. Join us beginning at 6pm for sets from Warren, Marty Stuart, Gregg Allman, Galactic, the Neville Brothers, Trey Anastasio, the Bottle Rockets, Jason Isbell, Marcus King, Gov't Mule, and countless special guests.

It's our 19th Pre-Jam, in advance of Warren's 29th annual fundraiser for Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity. What began as a live Studio B session and a great opportunity for various artists to meet and jam with each other for the first time, has now become a tradition with a vibe all its own, and WNCW is honored to be able to broadcast it live for you in its entirety (with cool holiday tunes during set breaks to help get you into the Christmas spirit, 'NCW-style.) Who else will be there? Gov't. Mule? Trey Anastasio? Les Bros?

If you don't have tickets to the Christmas Jam, but still want to get involved, here are some ideas...
