Mountain Stage After Midnight: The Fruit Bats, Mavis Staples, Todd Snider


Memorial Day Weekend and the livin’ is easy, especially when we’ve got your late nights covered with superb live performance radio. But don’t take our word for it: hear it for yourself 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 31 year history and shares their memories and songs with our late-night listeners.

Stay up late to hear rock’n and roll’n sets Saturday May 23 and Sunday May 24 on Mountain Stage After Midnight.

First up is a 2010 show from WVU’s Creative Arts Center. It features Lizz Wright, The Holmes
Brothers, Deolinda, Raul Midon, The Paper Raincoat and The Fruit Bats.
