WNCW's new music podcast has lots of great new music featured here, with regional favorites from western NC like Tyler Ramsey and Rising Appalachia, and our segue of the show pairing songs written decades ago which have been covered many times, one of which is a brand new version from Charlie Hunter and Lucy Woodward.  Many of the songs on this podcast are also available on one of our Spotify playlists, titled “WNCW New Music.”

Happy Friday! We're on our sixth day of our Fall Fundraiser and we have a very special offer for folks who make a pledge today, Friday, October 26th.

You loved our Free Range Radio Chicken Sticker so much, we decided to create a WNCW T-shirt with the same idea in mind.

We have LOTS of new thank you gifts - cool stuff like our new Crowd Around The Mic Vol. 22. There's info on this homepage about the artists featured on the two-cd compilation.

We are also offering a new handmade coffee mug, new tee-shirt designs, a new hoodie, a WNCW Nalgene Bottle, fishing trips, concert tickets, cds, gift certificates and much more!

Put on your dancin' shoes and join WNCW's Spencer Jones and Vicki Dameron this Friday night at 10pm after Frank on Friday.  Here's the scoop: Jones had a really cool idea to bring in the "behind the scenes" WNCW staff members and let them have a shot at being guest hosts. Vicki "Vixter" Dameron is the first brave soul to venture out into this fantastic endeavor and the end product... this week's Friday Night Music Mix, will surely make you smile. Promise. Jones is an upbeat person who likes upbeat music and so does Dameron, a former DJ from the early days of WNCW.

People who dream of working in radio and television are told, as soon as they begin studying the intricacies of broadcasting, that they’ll need to complete an internship if they truly want to work in the business. Most station coordinators want people to have solid, real-life experience in the biz before they’ll consider taking a chance on hiring new employees.

Host Joe Greene brings us music from the roots up with tunes from Jerry Douglas, Love Canon, Circus No.9 and more. In this new WNCW program, we explore the progressive side of music, spotlighting artists that reach beyond traditional Bluegrass music. Plus, we get into songs and sounds from the younger generation of pickers adding their feelings and flavor to our roots music traditions. Hope you can take a stroll in The Tall Grass with us, Sunday evenings at 6pm.

 

After taking a little summer break, we’re back into the swing with some great women’s voices in the bands Offa Rex, Kacy & Clayton and This Is The Kit. We keep it local with Charlotte NC group The Loudermilks, get into some psychedelic funk from Mali and tip our hat to the late great Allen Toussaint, and more.
