Put down the mixtapes and turn on West Virginia Public Radio this weekend to hear the best live performance radio, courtesy of “Mountain Stage After Midnight.” Broadcast from 1am-5am Saturday and Sunday mornings here on West Virginia Public Radio, “Mountain Stage After Midnight” takes the best episodes from the show’s 31 year history and shares their memories and songs with our late-night listeners. Each week we’ll hand-pick two of our favorite episodes and they’ll alternate order each night.

Join us as we flashback to performances from the year 2011 for Saturday August 16 and Sunday August 17 on “Mountain Stage After Midnight.”

First you’ll hear a November 2011 performance from self-proclaimed “song-doodler” Katie Costello, country crooners The Sweetback Sisters, post-bluegrass band Bearfoot, retro-pop group Fitz and the Tantrums, and American rock-and-rollers Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers. See the playlist.
