Mountain Stage After Midnight: November 15 & 16
Winter is coming. Jack Frost is nigh. Santa Clause is coming to town. Whatever way you say it, it's cold outside, so stay inside, curl up next to the fire and listen to some heart- and ear-warming tunes on "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 that'll alternate order each night.
Tune in for some good tunes and great times this Saturday November 15 and Sunday November 16 on “Mountain Stage After Midnight."
