Our favorite blues singer/bassist/gas can guitarist from Pelzer, SC returns to Studio B this week! It's always a blast catching up with Mac about his memories of playing with Muddy Waters and James Brown back in the day, and all the various projects he and his band are involved with here in the Carolinas these days.  Their upcoming gigs  include Sierra Nevada on Wednesday, the Spinning Jenny on Friday, and Sparkle City Rhythm & Ribs in Spartanburg on Saturday the 1st.

This weekend, Studio B Rewind Host Kim Clark will bring us archival audio from sessions with Jane Kramer, along with Chris Rosser and Elliot Wadopian, playing songs from Jane's brand new album “Valley of the Bones.” She says we'll also rock out with Daniel Ramano and his band, who performed live for us this past January, and we'll rewind all the way back to 1999 when the legendary Clarence Gatemouth Brown stopped by for a visit. It's all on Studio B Rewind, this Sunday, and every Sunday, at 7pm on WNCW.

Studio B Rewind Host Kim Clark says we'll be listening to former New York Dolls guitarist Aaron Lee Tasjan, and his band, this Sunday. The group's latest album, Karma For Cheap, was one of our favorites from 2018 and came in at #46 in our Top 100. Our host will also share music from a session recorded last summer - a stellar performance and interview with Upstate South Carolina legends David Ball & That Carolina Sound... keeping the music of Uncle Walt's Band alive.

We officially have our new Crowd Around The Mic Volume 22 in our hands... you can have it in your hands too by making a pledge today! It's an amazing compilation of many of our Studio B performances from artists that dropped by WNCW in 2018. We hope you like it - we do! If you click on the slideshow in this post you can see all the artists that are featured in this incredible collection.
