Breakdowns In The Food Supply Chain And Our Mountain Stage Song Of The Week On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, we hear about breakdowns in the food supply chain from suppliers to grocery stores, including Buzz Food Service in Charleston, which is trying to alleviate the problem by training new, local butchers. Folkways reporter Zack Harold has the story.

Also, in this show, this week on Mountain Stage, it’s an archive special. It was recorded in Huntington in 2002. Renowned vocalist Holly Cole has our Song of the Week. It’s a performance of “Cry (If I Want To)” originally released on Cole’s 1996 album titled It Happened One Night.
