In this episode, you will hear the latest from New Zealand’s Tami Neilson, Canada’s Corb Lund, we will get to some wonderfully twisted roots music from artists like Danny Barnes and Sierra Hull, and turn it up a notch with new rock from Best Coast, Maya De Vitry and Greg Dulli. We also welcome Joni Deutsch to our segment “DJ For A Day”, as we have a conversation about how Joni and her colleagues at WFAE in Charlotte are still making radio happen amidst all the upheaval from the coronavirus. All that and more, plus a Segue Of The Show from De La Soul’s watershed debut.

  The 2018 International Bluegrass Music Award Ceremony was held last week in Raleigh, North Carolina at The Duke Energy Center for Performing Arts. The event was hosted by one of WNCW's favorite bands, HOT RIZE. Many of the IBMA musicians are long time friends of our grassroots, listener-powered radio station and we want to take time and congratulate the winners - Job well done!
