A Life In Rock

Thurs 8-10pm EST; Sun 8-10pm EST

A Life In Rock started on WOVV in September 2015 after I had made many visits to the island…After decades spent as a performer, in Australia primarily, the premise of my radio show is to feature a good deal of Aussie classic rock most of which is unknown to American audiences. That, combined with across the board International classic hits, album tracks and “B” sides makes up A Life In Rock which emanates from my home studio in Pittsburgh as well as a number of live shows from the WOVV studio mostly duetting verbally with Tommy Hutcherson, well known WOVV stablemate!!!

Island Morning Mix 

Tues 8-10am EST; Sat 8-10am EST

“Eclectic as Always” – “The music of the BETTER part of the Twentieth Century” –  “The Hits from the Twenties through the Nineties” … familiar phrases that I use during my WOVV spot, “Island Morning Mix,”. I’m one of the veterans here at WOVV and a hopeless Yankee from the Philadelphia area. Yet, I spend about 3 months of each year in Ocracoke. Tune in to see what’s up on Tuesday and Saturday mornings…I think you will be hooked!

John Simpson

Classic Cuts & Such 

Tues 2-4pm EST; Sat 6-8pm EST

Greetings and welcome to WOVV Radio. As an on air personality-Carolina John- broadcasting each Saturday from 6-8pm with a rebroadcast of that show Tuesday 2-4pm. I play a variety of music from swing to modern, with rock from the 70’s and 80’s. Growing up on Ocracoke, I was a southern rock fan, but enjoyed all styles of music, especially live music. I have been broadcasting my shows since September 2013. This past year I became a WOVV board member. I encourage you to get “Tuned in and Turned On” and enjoy the shows.

LeAnne Astin

Sound Crossings 

Wed 8-10pm EST; Sat 3-5pm EST

Every week, LeAnne Astin and her husband/producer Ted choose a show theme based on what’s happening on the island or around the OBX, then put together a playlist of amazing and rarely heard music based on the theme.  From rock to reggae, psychedelia to psychobilly, funk to folk, swing to soul, blues to bluegrass, gospel to glam…show tunes, kids music, parodies and novelties, too…almost anything is on the table.  They also throw in musical history, fun facts, and more than a few bad puns.  It all adds up to a sometimes cool, sometimes strange, but always interesting and eclectic mix.

Showell Blades

The Eclectic Blanket

Tues 8-10pm EST; Thurs 5-7pm EST

I’ve been doing The Eclectic Blanket on Tuesday from 8-10 pm remotely for a couple of years and my focus is on everything and nothing in particular: on most non-classical genres and featuring songs mostly done after 1960: blues, folk, jazz, country, rock, pop, bluegrass, electronica, soul, disco, new age, punk, new wave, experimental, world music, and anything else I happen to like or have just heard (the primary criteria and I hope you like it). While I’m guilty of playing hits, I try to focus on deep cuts and stuff you maybe won’t hear on commercial radio and always identify the songs and often tell a little bit about them, and sometimes do a theme, when I’m not being totally random and merely following one song with another because that’s what the song I just played reminded me of (I may be A.D.D.). At some point, I may come up with a Classical Music show and start going live in the studio.

Tommy Ascher

The Killer B Show 

Fri 8-9pm EST; Sun 4-5pm EST

Playing some of my favorites and, hopefully, some of yours, too…since 2012.

Tom Cain

Down Creek Blues

Sat 9-10pm EST; Sun 6-7pm EST

Down Creek Blues has been a staple of the WOVV program mix since early 2011. I play a wide mix of the old-time blues performers, the well-known greats, and the up-and-coming blues artists of today. Sometimes I sneak in a little jazz as well! You’re also likely to hear me show up in the studio at other random times to play a wide mix of what I like, particularly old rock & roll. Keep listening!!!

Tommy Hutcherson

The Rockin’ Radio Show 

Tues 4-6pm EST, Fri 9-11pm EST

I started my Rockin’ Radio Show in May of 2013 spotlighting on Classic Rock, Blues and killer older tunes.  I have a passion for live music and playing drums and have played live music on the island for over 30 years.  I served on the board of directors in 2014 & 2015, Co-Chaired the board in 2016 and now I’m Chairman of the Board for 2017.  I love WOVV and devote much time, energy and passion into making our Radio Station the best we can be. Please support local radio and please advise me of challenges that may need attention, without you we are not on the air.
