Ten years ago today, February 6, 2005, was my first show as an intern at Mountain Stage. I drove that morning from Radford, Va. to begin officially logging hours for a 460-hour internship to complete my Music Business degree. It was a Super Bowl Sunday - Eagles vs. Patriots - and Mountain Stage had a characteristically diverse line-up for the live audience in Charleston that night: Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks, Hot Club of Cowtown, Chuck Prophet, The Duhks and Amos Lee .
