Friday Feature of the Week

  • Don Pedi, host of Close To Home
    Blue Ridge Public Radio
    Close To Home has been on public radio in Western North Carolina since the 1980s. When it came to finding a new home for this old-time and folk music show, WNCW was the perfect fit. Close To Home host, Don Pedi talked with Paul Foster about the show, his love of the dulcimer, and his excitement for this new opportunity.
  • Western North Carolina resident Otto Vazquez was Paul's guest to discuss the ongoing film project about his novel, "The Rebirth of Kool." The story's character, Kool, gives up a life of bootlegging to open a Jazz nightclub in East Los Angeles. The novel takes place during the real-life Zoot Suit Riots of the 1940s, which makes this story both dangerous and thrilling.
