Loudon Wainwright III

Brian Blauser / Mountain Stage


Longstanding Mountain Stage alums Justin Townes Earle and Loudon Wainwright III are releasing new records this week, so it only seems right to open up the Mountain Stage archives to reminisce over their past performances with the help of “Mountain Stage After Midnight." Broadcast from 1am-5am Saturday and Sunday mornings here on West Virginia Public Radio, "Mountain Stage After Midnight" takes the best episodes from the show's 31 year history and shares their memories and songs with our late-night listeners. Each week we'll hand-pick two of our favorite episodes and they'll alternate order each night.

Mountain Stage returns to your dial this weekend with an episode featuring one of America's finest, funniest, and poignant songwriters, Loudon Wainwright III. Hitmaker Paula Cole performs her most beloved songs, along with a few new tunes. You'll also hear from The Overmountain Men, Paleface, and The Sea The Sea, which includes singer-songwriter Mira Stanley, who practically grew up backstage at Mountain Stage alongside her father Ron Sowell.
