Mountain Stage is a two-hour music radio show that first aired in 1983 and is produced by the West Virginia Public Broadcasting and distributed worldwide by National Public Radio (NPR) and the Voice of America's satellite radio service. The program is hosted by Larry Groce and showcases diverse music from the traditional to the modern. It is recorded before a live audience, usually at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, but occasionally travels to other venues elsewhere around the United States and in some parts of Canada. The funding for this display of fine music comes from various private-public means. Private funding on a larger scale is provided by Chesapeake Energy, and the law firm of Bailey & Glasser, LLP. Check the local show schedule to see exactly when Mountain Stage is performing again.
