Zach Wiles

Bluegrass in the Backwoods & Advertising Sales

Zach Wiles, a proud native of Southwest Virginia, was born and raised in Lee County. Although still in his mid-20s, he is an old soul who has drawn much of strength of character from older generations in the area. A great deal of his current identity took shape in his teen years. It was then that he developed his love for the outdoors, for history, and for bluegrass music. Zach’s zest for music launched him on what has become a life-long obsession of collecting 45 rpm vinyl records, 8-track and cassette tapes, and long play albums. From his elders, he has mined countless stories – ones that you won’t find in the history books – that helped shape his understanding of the music and the area that he calls home. Zach lights up the airwaves with Bluegrass in the Backwoods on 101.9 WSWV every Wednesday evening from 6:00 PM until midnight.
