Mountain Stage at 30: Songs From the Doc (Part Six)

I'm sad to report that this sixth 'Songs From the Doc' post marks the penultimate in the series that documents the music used in 'Mountain Stage at 30: A Radio Retrospective'.

Probably--well, not probably, most definitely--the most fun part of producing a documentary on 30 years of Mountain Stage is getting to cull through the archives of 2,000 hours of live performance radio. It's daunting, humbling, and exciting all in one. There's music recorded on virtually every format: reel to reel, DAT, miniDisc--you name it--they've got it on that medium.
