On West Virginia Morning, we’ll meet Dave Tabler who heard so many jokes about being from West Virginia, he began a website and podcast to defend it.  We’ll also meet Uncle Dude of Pocahontas County.  His nephew explains how his uncle mastered bluegrass music after contracting polio as a child.  Ashton Marra reports on Gov. Tomblin's new effort to reform the state's juvenile justice system.
