ARC Overnight

Monday-Wednesday & Friday: Midnight - 4am; Saturday & Sunday: Midnight - 5am

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.

Tune in to ARC Overnight with host Rob Daves this Tuesday night/Wednesday morning in the midnight hour for Joe Kendrick's interview with the Asheville, NC instrumental duo Ahleuchatistas. Their seventh release, Heads Full of Poison, has won critical acclaim from DownBeat, The New York Times, and NPR, to name just a few.

Twenty years ago, WNCW signed off the air at 2 a.m. each weekday before coming back on air at 6 a.m. in the morning. A group from Charlotte came over to Spindale and changed all that in the fall of 1992, bringing ARC Overnight to the airwaves and making WNCW a 24-hour station.
