Mountain Stage After Midnight- October 4 & 5

Brian Blauser / Mountain Stage

What do you get when you mix two iconic singer-songwriters with a whole lot of good music? A little something called "Mountain Stage After Midnight." Broadcast from 1am-5am Saturday and Sunday mornings here on West Virginia Public Radio, "Mountain Stage After Midnight" takes the best episodes from the show's 31 year history and shares their memories and songs with our late-night listeners. Each week we'll hand-pick two of our favorite episodes and they'll alternate order each night.

Tune your dials to West Virginia Public Radio this Saturday October 4 and Sunday October 5 for two great performances on “Mountain Stage After Midnight.”

First you’ll hear a 2008 performance recorded at the Templeton-Blackburn Auditorium on the campus of Ohio University. Hear from Colorado folk rock group Big Head Todd & The Monsters, Australian singer-songwriter Paul Kelly, Los Angeles-based multi-instrumentalist George Stanford, legendary jam band moe., and the iconic AniDiFranco. See the playlist.
