Happy Easter! Studio B Rewind Host Kim Clark says we're in for a special show this holiday weekend. 'This ain't no country music for hipsters or posers - it's real.' "That's what No Depression magazine had to say about Sarah Shook & The Disarmers' latest album - Years," said Clark. "You can judge for yourself on the next Studio B Rewind when we hear the live performance recorded in our studio last month."

The Spring Albino Skunk Festival is open for music, food, camping, and - as they say at the Skunk Farm, "FES - TAA - VUUL"  fun! The dates are April 11th through April 13th. It's happening in Greer, SC at the Skunk Farm.  WNCW's Program Director Joe Kendrick will be emceeing at the event and friends Tim and Ann Southard will be hanging out at our WNCW tent with other incredible volunteers. Come to the farm, see your friends, pick up swag at our tent, enjoy Spring and have fun listening to spectacular music.

Look who's coming back! One of the sweetest couples in contemporary bluegrass, and one of THE voices in Newgrass, for a wonderful union of talent and spirit.
