Calling the Herd! One of our favorite bands returns to the WNCW airwaves, this time from the stage of the Don Gibson Theatre in Shelby, NC. We'll air an interview between Joe Kendrick and Jeb, Tara & the gang in Donna the Buffalo, recorded during their soundcheck before their Saturday December 1st show there. They've got a great new album, so let's Dance in the Street!
