Wow. It's hard to believe it's been almost three decades since WNCW first went LIVE - on the air, back in 1989. In just a few weeks, we'll open our Fall Funder on our "Big Three-Oh." The station actually went on the air for the first time on October 13, 1989 - Friday The 13th to be exact, and we haven't stopped yet thanks to our listeners and the thousands of supporters of great public radio. Speaking of...

We'll feature Dawn Landes in a solo acoustic session spotlighting tunes from her new album “Meet Me At The River.” Also, we'll hear music from Darling West, the Americana band from Norway with a great new album, plus we'll remember the late Tony Joe White by listening to him in Studio B back in 2014. Join Host Kim Clark for Studio B Rewind every Sunday at 7pm.

We had a great time taking these images in Studio B while hanging with the band Yellow Feather. The group calls Old Fort, North Carolina home. It's a small town located in the Blue Ridge Mountains, just eat of Asheville, NC. We were fortunate to share this LIVE Studio B Session with our listeners earlier this year. And, we've also been able to feature one of the Country/Americana band's songs, "Lucille" on our new Crowd Around The Mic CD Volume 22.

She's sold more than 12 million records, won 27 Grammys, nine Country Music Association Awards, 14 International Bluegrass Music Association Awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards AND two Gospel Music Association Awards. We've been playing her music on WNCW for almost three decades! She'll be in Cherokee, NC this Friday, September 21st at Harrah's. Showtime is 9pm. More Info
