"After Midnight" finale from Mountain Stage

Sep 18, 2013

The Mountain Stage finale is always something special and something that you often don't hear on the radio broadcast of the show. 

We were lucky enough to have a camera at a recent Mountain Stage and we captured this nice version of JJ Cale's "After Midnight". Cale performed on Mountain Stage in 1996 and recently passed away.
