An Author’s Take On Ecological Disaster And Our Song Of The Week, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, Mason Adams speaks with Kentucky poet laureate Silas House about his book “Lark Ascending,” one of Inside Appalachia‘s summer read picks. In the book, House explores a future that’s reeling from ecological disaster.

Also in this show, Randy Yohe reports on lawsuits over a hidden camera in the West Virginia State Police women’s locker room that continue to pile up.

And, our Mountain Stage Song of the Week comes to us from Los Angeles-based mini-roots orchestra Dustbowl Revival. We listen to their performance of “Let It Go.”
