Listen to Bell X1 perform "Four Minute Mile" Live on Mountain Stage


Like their fellow Irish rockers U2, Bell X1 take their name from another iconic aircraft – the first to fly faster than sound – flown by Lincoln County native Chuck Yeager. In fact, the first time Bell X1 visited Mountain Stage, they asked only half jokingly if Yeager might be in the audience. This performance is taken from the band’s second appearance on the show in 2011, and opens this weekend’s special Irish Tribute edition of Mountain Stage.

Listen to entire show this Sunday at 2 pm on West Virginia Public Radio, or on one of 130 stations around the country.
