Deconstructing Divas

Hosted by Maconโ€™s own Downtown Ambassador, Scott Mitchell and The Creekโ€™s Ashley Doolin, Deconstructing Divas is a show dedicated to the women who founded the backbone of Americana Music. These incredible womenโ€™s songs and stories are often over looked and forgotten; dismissed with the passing of time. On the hour-long program, Scott and Ashley will remind the listener of these amazing women that paved the way, fought for air play, and dug their high heels into the stage and left a mark in history. Deconstructing Divas will showcase one Diva per episode and highlight their music.

Join us every Sunday at noon for Deconstructing Divas.
