Our great friend, multi-instrumentalist, singer, storyteller and TV host David Holt returned to WNCW earlier this month to talk about his new, third season of his television series that highlights great roots music from our region.

Thursday, November 1st, 10-11am: David Holt

Oct 28, 2018

Multi-instrumentalist, singer, storyteller, and TV host David Holt returns to WNCW to talk about his new, 3rd season of great roots music from our region, "David Holt's State of Music." He and Martin Anderson will spin tunes from some of the musicians in this series' spotlight.

It's a holiday homecoming this week, with live performances by some our favorite regional artists. We'll go back to December 2014 for a holiday-themed visit from Morganton's Michael Reno Harrell, rewind to just before this past Thanksgiving for an uplifting session with Asheville's David Wilcox, and listen to vintage studio B performances by Caldwell County's Harris brothers, Asheville's David Holt, the Lazybirds from Boone, and Knoxville's RB Morris. Join host Kim Clark for Studio B Rewind, every Friday at 6pm, only on WNCW, the best station in the nation.
