Kayak
COLOR MAY VARY

Good day! Today is Thursday and that means it's Dagger Kayak giveaway day!  A "Roam 9.5 Kayak" is being donated to WNCW from our friends at Confluence Outdoor in Greenville, South Carolina. Those who have already made a donation, and those who make a tax-deductible donation before the end of the day today are automatically entered to win! The drawing will be held Thursday evening, May 21 at 6pm. Pre-drive donations are counted in this drawing. Note: Color may vary on kayak.

We have been excited to pair these items up for you since we first designed them a few months ago! We'll have this offer available until the end of the fundraiser, when we shut her down at 7pm, Saturday, May 23, 2020. The WNCW Guitar Bundle includes the phenomenal Crowd Around the Mic, Vol.23, the new WNCW Guitar Shirt and a snazzy new WNCW Sticker for a pledge of $190. This is a "Call In Only" offer.

It's our largest collection of Studio B Sessions that we have ever produced! As you can see from the image, there are some incredible artists featured on this three CD compilation. It's truly a treasure trove of musical goodness. There are 45 sessions, recorded mainly in Studio B, so if you're missing our live sessions, here's a way to own 45 of them. It will be retired after this fund drive, so get it now while you can!

This Spring Fundraiser, we have some fabulous special offers thanks to local business who have donated fishing trips, waterfall rappelling treks, kayaks, and a handcrafted guitar.

We'll begin our giveaways Monday, May 18 at 8am in the morning. When you make a donation, you will automatically be entered into each contest, when you donate before the deadline. Call us at 800 245 8870 or click on the DONATE button on wncw.org.

Saturday, May 16 at 8pm: The Muddy Waters Reunion Band

May 15, 2020

On this week's "Saturday Night House Party", we wrap up our weeklong series of some of our favorite Studio B sessions with one of our most memorable ones. Mac Arnold, Willie Big Eyes Smith, Kim Wilson, Steady Rollin' Bob Margolin... Wow. The day we hosted these four giants of the blues, who collectively have played with SO many legends over the years, was a very, very special day for us.

Check out the podcast from this session:

Our series of rebroadcasting favorite Studio B sessions continues on Saturday with this first of two: the award-winning Rhonda Vincent and her world-class band The Rage was a lot of fun to have here back last year! Enjoy it during our 2nd hour of "Goin' Across the Mountain."

Here's the podcast from this session:

Another favorite band of ours whom we're honored to have welcomed on more than one occasion is the Avett Brothers. This interview/performance we have for you, another that hasn't aired since it was live (4/12/04), was around the time "Mignonette" came out, when the band was still just the trio of Seth, Scott, and Bob.

Greetings! It's that time again - Our Spring Fundraiser has begun! We have some incredible thank you gifts lined up for our funder from some super talented artists and business owners residing in, and around, the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina. Jay Lichty is one of those folks, and one of the best guitar and ukulele luthiers in the country. We're lucky to call him a friend of the station.

We've been fans of fellow North Carolinian Tift Merritt since her first album "Bramble Rose" back in 2002. This Studio B session we'll air from 2008 was recorded around the time her album "Another Country" came out in February of 2008.

Wednesday, May 13th at Noon, from May, 2003: Andrew Bird

May 11, 2020

In the absence of live Studio B sessions, we thought we'd revisit some of our favorite ones from years' past. Join us Wednesday as we rebroadcast this one from the innovative singer/songwriter/violinist Andrew Bird.
