If there’s one thing in music that practically everyone knows something about, it’s living legend Dolly Parton. And if there’s one thing in music that few people know anything about, it’s how film soundtracks are made. Both of these are a given; like the sun rising and setting, there is music in movies, and there is the transcendent career of Dolly.

On Tuesday, December 4th, one of Brevard, North Carolina's favorite singer/songwriters, Dave Desmelik, returned to WNCW, this time with an Army of Love! Laura Blackley, Jane Kramer, Alexa Rose, Mike Guggino, & Mike Ashworth joined him for a very special session, to play music and talk about the band's benefit concert to help raise awareness about pediatric illness. The event will be held at 7:30pm - Sunday, December 9th at The Grey Eagle in Asheville, NC.

We officially have our new Crowd Around The Mic Volume 22 in our hands... you can have it in your hands too by making a pledge today! It's an amazing compilation of many of our Studio B performances from artists that dropped by WNCW in 2018. We hope you like it - we do! If you click on the slideshow in this post you can see all the artists that are featured in this incredible collection.
