From our broadcast on Monday January 29th in the 3pm hour, Program Director Joe Kendrick interviewed Lucinda Williams ahead of her show Tuesday the 30th in Greenville SC at the Peace Center

Lucinda was open about her road to recovery following her stroke and her determination to get back to the stage where her fans' "presence is a gift".

Hear Joe Kendrick's conversation with Lucinda Williams, including songs Lucinda references in our conversation, along with music she refers to in this interview.

Joe Kendrick grew up far off in the woods in rural Stanfield, NC, where he acquired his first Sony Walkman, listened to both AM and FM radio from Charlotte, went to Nascar races at Charlotte Motor Speedway, attended a small Baptist church, read Rolling Stone, subscribed to cassette clubs, and played one very forgettable season of high school football. From there, Joe studied Journalism at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he was able to fulfill his dream of being a disc jockey at WXYC. He volunteered at WNCW soon after graduation.
