Mountain Stage After Midnight: Stephen Kellogg, Fitz & the Tantrums, Billy Joe Shaver


Some say Froot Loops, others say Corn Flakes, and then there’s that whole All-Bran thing, but our preferred Kellogg has been and will always be Stephen.

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 32 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 September 19 and Sunday September 20 on “Mountain Stage After Midnight.”

Did you know Fitz and the Tantrums performed Money Grabber on the Mountain Stage back in 2011?

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 (btw, Stephen Kellogg returns to the Mountain Stage this November!).
