Celebrating Body Art And Our Song Of The Week On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, each summer for a decade, the West Virginia Tattoo Expo has brought artists and enthusiasts to Morgantown to celebrate body art. This year, the convention has added a second weekend. Reporter Chris Schulz spent some time at the event.

Also, in this show, our Mountain Stage Song of the Week comes to us from Chuck Prophet. We listen to his performance of “Willie Mays Is Up At Bat,” which comes from his 2012 album Temple Beautiful. This performance also marked Prophet’s tenth appearance on Mountain Stage.
