2016 was a big year for NPR Music and West Virginia Public Broadcasting's Mountain Stage. We celebrated 33 years of live performance radio, commemorated the 25th anniversary of R.E.M.’s legendary set, and listened to the voices of two new guest hosts

When R.E.M. appeared on NPR's Mountain Stage on April 28, 1991, they were one of the biggest bands in the world. Though when they released Out of Time, in March of that year, they decided against touring behind it, opting for media appearances instead. One of these appearances was Mountain Stage.

Mountain Stage's Larry Groce and A Change of Tune's Joni Deutsch join over 50 public radio hosts in listing their favorite songs of 2015.

Public radio hosts from across the country came together this past month to pick their favorite songs of 2015. The result? An NPR Music Best Songs of 2015 playlist, of course!  Here's a recap of that list and the music you heard this past year on West Virginia Public Broadcasting.

Heed Larry Groce's words, folks: John Mark Nelson is going places.

There's no place like public radio when it comes to discovering new and emerging music. And there's no better time than today to be a part of West Virginia's budding music scene.

That's why I was so excited to be a part of NPR's Heavy Rotation to talk about my love for Ona, a Huntington band that has been on my radar for a while but will be on the world's radar soon enough.
