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.
