Mountain Stage After Midnight- September 27 & 28


2007 was a great year: the final “Harry Potter” book was released, we were introduced to some plucky teenagers in “Juno,” Steve Jobs made an announcement about something called an iPhone, and Mountain Stage Radio Show featured some top notch perfomers, as we’ll hear on this week’s “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.

Tune your dials to West Virginia Public Radio this Saturday September 27 and Sunday September 28 for some great performances on “Mountain Stage After Midnight.”

First you’ll hear a 2007 performance from punk rock icon John Doe, American pop-folk songwriter Luke Temple, country-punk singer Sarah Borges, legendary roots-rocker Chuck Prophet (who just released a new record, “Night Surfer,” this past week), and Afropop-by-way-of-Berlin artist Zap Mama.
