Mountain Stage After Midnight- August 30 & 31


Want to hang out with some great live performance radio this Labor Day weekend? Of course you do! To celebrate the end of summer, “Mountain Stage After Midnight” is serving up some delicious performances straight from the Mountain Stage archives. 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.

Tune in for two great 2010 performances that will air Saturday August 30 and Sunday August 31 on “Mountain Stage After Midnight.”

First you’ll hear a April 2010 performance from the WVU Creative Arts Center. This show features alt-folk super-group Jakob Dylan & Three Legs (featuring Neko Case & Kelly Hogan), indie folk duo The Watson Twins, quirky pop outlet Clare & the Reasons, Swedish singer-songwriter The Tallest Man on Earth, and American folk rockers April Smith & the Great Picture Show. See the playlist.
