ARC Overnight

ARC stands for Alternative Radio Coalition, which an ambitious group of radio enthusiasts from Charlotte began in 1992. Their mission continues to this day with anchor host Rob Daves and an array of volunteers spinning a mix that embraces the commitment to diversity and depth heard during our weekday mix, only with a completely different set of artists and styles.

Lincoln County based singer-songwriter Lily Tallent talked with (volunteer) Jaclyn. Lily talked about working on her first album. The interview features three original songs and a different take on an old favorite.
