The Debate Over Greyhound Treatment And Rodney Crowell Has Our Song Of The Week, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, humane treatment is one of the central issues driving the national push to end greyhound racing. Part two of our new four-part radio series, “Greyhound Racing In W.Va. — Last Of A Dying Breed,” takes us to the veterinarian’s office and the breeder’s farm.

Also, in this show, renowned singer and songwriter Rodney Crowell has our Mountain Stage Song of the Week with his performance of “Weight of the World.”
