Sticker Shop Celebrates W.Va. And Nick Lowe, Los Straitjackets Have Our Song Of The Week, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, Elizabeth Elswick couldn’t find a lot of merchandise to represent her home state of West Virginia while she was growing up. But today, she represents Appalachian culture and sayings through her sticker shop. Folkways Reporter Maddie Miller brings us this story.

Also, in this show, our Mountain Stage Song of the Week comes to us from Nick Lowe and Los Straitjackets. We listen to their 2019 performance of “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding” – a song from their EP, Love Starvation/Trombone.
