A Morgantown-Based Band Gets Back Together On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, the state has a rich musical history, and in the late 1990s and early 2000s, Morgantown-based band The Argument was a proud part of that tradition. But after almost a decade of touring and a few appearances on Mountain Stage, the band went their separate ways.

Now, after close to 20 years of inactivity and most of the members moving away from the state, The Argument is releasing new music. Reporter Chris Schulz sat down with The Argument’s Chris Russell and Scott Simons to discuss collaborating online, and Morgantown’s enduring impact on their music.

Also, in this show, The Allegheny Front, based in Pittsburgh, shares its latest story about the requirement to lease state lands in Ohio for fracking.
