Health Legislation And John Inghram Has Our Song Of The Week On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, there have been a number of health issues discussed by the state legislature this session, from reducing the cost of insulin to women’s health. Appalachia Health News Reporter Emily Rice spoke with The Legislature Today host Bob Brunner about some of the bills she’s been following.

Also, in this show, our Mountain Stage Song of the Week is by bassist, songwriter and vocalist John Inghram, who has appeared on Mountain Stage alongside several artists over the years. He steps out as the front man and songwriter for his own band on this week’s show. John’s self-titled debut album, released in May 2022, features the single “Palisades,” which we’ve chosen as our Song of the Week.
