An environmental watchdog group is claiming some companies in West Virginia are using diesel fuel in their fracking fluids without the proper permits. Craft Brewers are celebrating their industry at two festivals in West Virginia this weekend, but they're hoping the events bring attention to the legal needs of the industry not just their businesses. Antiques Roadshow's executive producer Marsha Bemko discusses the show's first time in West Virginia and Brett Dennen has this week's Mountain Stage Song of the Week.
