A West Virginia Morning Love Story

West Virginia Morning

This morning, we’ll hear the love story of a couple who met in Mexico, and then moved to West Virginia nearly 70 years ago. Our listeners might recognize the voice of Frank Stowers. Stowers is a part time host of our classical music programming. Inside Appalachia producer Roxy Todd sat down with Frank and his wife of 67 years, Emita Stowers, to hear their story.

The interview is part of this weekend’s episode of Inside Appalachia. This episode is a special Valentine’s show- dedicated to Appalachian Love stories. Listen Sunday morning at 7 and again Sunday evening at 6 here on West Virginia Public Broadcasting.

Morgantown, West Virginia native Charles Wesley Godwin’s song “Coal Country” is out Mountain Stage Song of the Week. A song to remind us that the coal’s impact reaches far beyond Appalachia, broadening the definition of what many think of as “Coal Country.”
