This week, we usher in the season of lights with our holiday show from 2022. James Beard-nominated West Virginia chefs Mike Costello and Amy Dawson serve up special dishes with stories behind them. We visit an old-fashioned toy shop whose future was uncertain after its owners died – but there’s a twist. We also share a few memories of Christmas past, which may or may not resemble yours. You’ll hear these stories and more this week, Inside Appalachia.Continue Reading Take Me to More News
“Aw man, [band] AND [artist] were on your show in [year]? That sounds amazing. Why wasn’t I there!”
If this sounds familiar to you, that’s because it’s a symptom of Mountain Stage fever, a music fanatic habit that comes about whenever we pull out the Mountain Stage archives and show off our 30+ year history of live performance radio.
This weekend, get ready to ooohhh and ahhhhh over a pair of 2009 shows featuring Regina Spektor, Yo La Tengo, Indigo Girls and more on Mountain Stage After Midnight.
Broadcast from 1am-5am Saturday and Sunday mornings here on West Virginia Public Broadcasting, Mountain Stage After Midnight takes the best episodes from the show’s 32 year history and shares their memories and songs with our late-night listeners.
Join us this Saturday September 5 and Sunday September 6 for Mountain Stage After Midnight for a great set of shows.
First, an episode from September 2009 featuring Indigo Girls, Chris Smither, Jill Hennessy, Alison Brown Band and Gary Jules.
Then an October 2009 episode recorded at the WVU Creative Arts Center in Morgantown with WVU Arts & Entertainment featuring Regina Spektor, Yo La Tengo, Sonny Landreth (who’s returning to the Mountain Stage this fall!), Will Hoge and Great Lake Swimmers.
