In the mountains of western North Carolina, one radio station reigns supreme: WNCW, a public broadcasting station owned by Isothermal Community College in Spindale. We’re so obsessed with the station that we’ve devoted a whole episode to it. Host John Huey is back for the Season Two premiere to catch up with WNCW’s music director, Martin Anderson, about the station’s devoted following and the eclectic sounds—old and new—that go out over its airwaves.
