Continued Debate Over Mountain Valley Pipeline And Our Song Of The Week On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, Curtis Tate speaks with Suzanne Mattei of the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis for her perspective on the ongoing debate over construction of the Mountain Valley Pipeline. Ultimately, the pipeline may get built, but some energy analysts question whether the pipeline is even needed.

Also, in this show, the legendary icon of cosmic cowboy country music Ray Wylie Hubbard has our Mountain Stage Song of the Week. We listen to Hubbard’s performance of “Desperate Man,” which closes out his studio album, Co-Starring Too with guest-stars Band of Heathens. In this version, you’ll hear the Mountain Stage Band backing Hubbard.
