As Don Henley's long-time writing partner, JD Souther has had his hands in some of the most memorable pop songs of all time,  including "The New Kid in Town" and "Best of My Love." But here, Souther teams up with Mountain Stage favorite Nellie McKay to cover another legendary songwriter: Cole Porter's standard "Every Time We Say Goodbye."

2015 was a big year for Mountain Stage. We began a beautiful friendship with public radio music discovery machine VuHaus. We created a new, bite-size podcast called Mountain Stage 2 Go.

  On this West Virginia Morning, we get an update on the trial of Don Blankenship, including testimony from former coal miner Bobbie Pauley. Beth Vorhees also speaks with West Virginia University journalism professor John Temple about his new book American Pain. Also, JD Souther recruits Nellie McKay for a cover of Cole Porter's "Everytime We Say Goodbye."

Mountain Stage loves to travel. In just a few weeks, we’ll be hitting the road for shows at Davis & Elkins College, Abingdon’s Barter Theatre and Grand Marais’ North House Folk School. But before we do, let’s get in the ramblin’ spirit with some good ol’ archived trips.

Saturday is West Virginia Day! In our opinion, the best way to celebrate the Mountain State of West Virginia is with some music from…. well… you know… Mountain Stage.

Broadcast from 1am-5am Saturday and Sunday mornings here on West Virginia Public Broadcasting, 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.

Tune in this Saturday June 21 and Sunday June 22 for some archived music goodness on Mountain Stage After Midnight.

There’s a reason why artists like Tim O’Brien, Kathy Mattea and Nellie McKay keep coming back to the Mountain Stage year after year. Between the good home cooking (provided by the lovely Judy Byrne) and the jam band togetherness of our finale song, each show feels like a musical family reunion of sorts.
