Tomatoes, Our Song Of The Week And ARC's First West Virginian Co-Chair This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, many family traditions are passed down from generation to generation throughout the Appalachian region, but there is a unique story of a particular tomato plant cultivated in West Virginia. Also, we have a story about Gayle Manchin who is the first West Virginian to serve as federal co-chair of the Appalachian Regional Commission.

We also feature Eric Church performing “Sinners Like Me” for our Mountain Stage Song of the Week.
