ARC Overnight Feature

Markey Austin

Join WNCW's Joe Kendrick as he talks with Markey Austin about her memories of the early days of ARC Overnight, the wave of alternative and regional music from the era, and her return to the airwaves October 7th with co-host "Mad Dog" Sherril Ward as they celebrate the 20th anniversary of ARC on the air.

Markey is now president of Charlotte graphics design company Community Marketing Services, and although her work schedule now is oriented towards daytime hours rather than the wee hours of the morning, she still keeps a hand in the music scene by seeing shows and listening to WNCW. This conversation airs Wednesday morning September 25th just after 12 a.m. on Rob Daves' ARC Overnight show; stay tuned for more interviews with former ARC hosts and founding members as we approach its 20th anniversary.

Joe Kendrick grew up far off in the woods at 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.
