World’s Largest Teapot And Kathy Mattea Has Our Song Of The Week, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, what you find along the way on summer road trips can be as interesting as where you’re going. Inside Appalachia Associate Producer Zander Aloi has this story about a world-famous roadside attraction in the town of Chester.

Also, in this show, our Mountain Stage Song of the Week comes to us from Grammy-winning musician Kathy Mattea before she became the full-time host of Mountain Stage. We listen to her 2013 performance of “Coal Tattoo,” written by fellow West Virginian Billy Edd Wheeler and appears on her 2018 album Coal.
