One of the benefits ...

One of the benefits of our soon move to Rocky Mount, NC, is that we'll be able to listen to UNC's radio station. Of particular interest is Back Porch Music:


WUNC-FM's home-grown Back Porch Music is the longest continually running locally-produced program on the radio station. Each week, the program presents a wide range of acoustic-based folk music - from contemporary singer/songwriters to old-time musicians of the 20s and 30s, and from classic Celtic to blues - and beyond. Some of the artists you're likely to hear on WUNC's Back Porch Music include: Nickel Creek, Dar Williams, The Red Clay Ramblers, Doc Watson, Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, Maura O'Connell, DeDannan, Bob Dylan, Elizabeth Cotten, Pete Seeger, Cherish the Ladies, The Shady Grove Band, Jim Watson, June Tabor, Memphis Slim, John Gorka, Stan Rogers, The Carter Family, Tift Merritt, Cousin Emmy, Hank Williams (Sr.), Alison Krauss and Union Station, Jackson Browne, Etta Baker, Kate Rusby, Altan, Sonny Terry, Uncle Dave Macon, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Richard Shindell, Tim & Mollie O'Brien, and thousands of other related artists.

Back Porch Music airs Fridays and Saturday from 8p-12M (with Freddy Jenkins), and Sundays from 8p-11 PM (with Keith Weston).


Woo-hoo ... y'all!

All The Best,
