Bob Log III is a sparkling spectacle of true uniqueness and talent. His performances are awe-inspiring and oh so entertaining. A magnificent one man party band, Log plays old Silvertone archtop guitars, wears a full body human cannonball suit, and a motorcycle helmet wired to a telephone receiver, which allows him to devote his hands and feet to guitar and drums. He's a human blues-bomb cannonball! Bob Log is THE MAN. Don't miss out on this show! It's worth your time, no doubt.

Come on out to The Double Crown this Friday night, for a good cause and a good time! A handful of local bands will be performing throughout the evening; the goal is to raise as much dough as possible for the folks down in Louisiana who are enduring hardship and loss due to the recent flooding of that region. Music goes from 6pm-midnight... jambalaya will be simmering and for sale, too! All money raised will be donated to disaster relief. Participating bands include: Wyatt Yurth and The Gold Standard, Chinquapin Duo, Vaden Landers, Carolina Catskins and more! Come one come all!

Tonight on UPT, we'll be getting all up in the 'jam'. We'll spread it, eat it, and call it 'jelly'.

With all the special shows we've been doing over the past couple of weeks, we've ended up sitting on some great new releases. It's time to open the floodgates and release the crackin' new tunes alongside some more aged and refined jams.

Expect a veritable onslaught of psychedelic and electronic goodness coming straight to you via the UPT connection tonight 7-10 Eastern - only at AshevilleFM at 103.3 FM locally and ashevillefm.org streaming to the world.

Come and feel the jam.
