Mountain Stage After Midnight- July 12 & 13


In the mood for some great late night jams? Look no further than this weekend’s pair of “Mountain Stage After Midnight” performances, broadcast from 1am-5am Saturday and Sunday mornings here on West Virginia Public Radio. It’s all part of the improved radio schedule that we know you’ll appreciate, and we’re excited to be sharing the best memories from Mountain Stage’s 31 year history with our late night listeners. Each week, we’ll hand-pick two of our favorite episodes and they’ll alternate order each night.

Here’s what is in store for you Saturday July 12 and Sunday July 13 on “Mountain Stage After Midnight.”

First, an episode from October 2000 featuring Irish folk supergroup Solas, American banjo player Alison Brown, Canadian folk band The Paper Boys, singer-songwriter Ryan Adams, and rootsy group Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks. We taped this show in “the other Charleston” (in South Carolina). 

Next, you’ll hear an episode featuring the late/great Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, American folk/blues artist Chris Smither, blues singer Tracy Nelson, Canadian guitarist Sue Foley, and California singer Chuck Prophet.
