Behind the Mic: Asheville FM hosts dozens of weekly shows that run the gamut of musical styles and tastes (you name it, they've got it). But don't take our word for it; take theirs. Xpress brings you this weekly feature — direct from the DJs — highlighting a few of the station's stellar offerings.

Here are the facts: We are on a beautiful ball of dirt that is hurtling through space while some force, totally beyond our ability to comprehend, creates us, keeps us breathing and eventually removes us. If we live to be 100, that leaves 36,500 days to enjoy it. Common Ground explores this reality and how to make the most of that time with heart-to-heart excerpts from Prem Rawat's addresses on peace, along with interviews, discussions and music — all coming from a desire to simply enjoy being alive. Hosted by Jim Forward on Sundays from 1-2 p.m. Photo by Max Cooper
