Here's the latest in our occasional series  called Songs We Love.  It's a look at the stories behind the songs we're playing on WUNC Music.  That's the new music stream from North Carolina Public Radio.  (WUNC's Songs We Love is also available as a podcast.)

Today we launch WUNC's Songs We Love Podcast. It's where we look at the stories behind some of the songs in rotation on our 24-hour music discovery stream, WUNC Music.  

One song that's in the WUNC Music mix right now is "Black Leaf" by John Paul White.  

White used to be in the band The Civil Wars but has since branched out on his own. His song "Black Leaf" is one recorded for his solo album "Beulah."

In this first podcast, Eric and John Paul talk about music inspiration, song writing and more.

The 2016 North Carolina State Fair kicked off last weekend and the list of bands playing this year is quite impressive. Here's a list of our top picks.

(Hear music by these bands and more on WUNC Music, our new streaming and HD2 music channel.)
