Local Public Radio station WNCW recently celebrated its 28th birthday. For almost three decades the popular station, located on the campus of Isothermal Community College in Spindale, NC, has provided an award winning blend of Americana music with DJs playing a wide variety of folk, bluegrass, jazz, rock, country, reggae, Celtic, world and indie music. Pair that up with National Public Radio News, and you can easily see why the station has an enormous fan base of grassroots listeners, supporters, underwriters and sponsors.
Host Joe Kendrick brings in a fresh batch of new music for you, including jazz, funk, bluegrass, Americana and Celtic, with a Segue Of The Week going back to British guitar legend Bert Jansch’s 1979 album Avocet. DJ For A Day sees our own Stephanie Webb and Kim Henson prepping us for our Fall Fund Drive in a conversation highlighting what weeks (make that months) of preparation go into the event, and what is new for our lineup of thank-you gifts this time around. Many of these songs featured in the episode are on our thank-you discs available during the fund drive as well.
