On this West Virginia Morning, we visit the world of independent pro-wrestling in Appalachia. We shared the mic this week with one of our colleagues here at West Virginia Public Broadcasting, Adam Harris. He’s spent the past two years recording wrestling shows in Boone County for an episode of Inside Appalachia. In this morning’s preview of that episode, we’ll hear Adam Harris speaking with Dave Allen, who was the ring announcer at the time for All Star Wrestling.

And we hear the Mountain Stage Song fo the Week -- a throwback to classic southern soul music from a modern-day band, our Song of the Week comes from Alabama's Saint Paul & the Broken Bones, who perform "Flow With It” live on Mountain Stage.
