KSUT is very pleased to bring Mountain Stage back to the Four Corners, after a hiatus of several years.  It’s a two-hour weekly exploration of the exciting and spontaneous world of live performance, offering very cool contemporary music, seasoned with tradneko mountain stageitional and roots musicians, all captured in front of a live audience.

Host Larry Groce is still aboard, since its beginnings in 1983. Mostly recorded at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, WV, the show also travels and has visited major music cities around the country. It was picked up for distribution by NPR last year as part of their expanding interest in popular music.

The longest running radio program of its kind, Mountain Stage continues to honor tradition and embrace innovation with the diverse cast of performers it showcases each week.  Plus, it’s great to have some music back on KSUT on Sunday afternoon. We’ll begin broadcasting it April 4 from noon-2 PM.  That day’s lineup includes Mark O’Connor’s Hot Swing, Jorma Kaukonen and David Bromberg, Among the Oak and Ash and more.

We have chosen to replace Michael Feldman’s Whad’Ya Know, as it just wasn’t a good fit. A two-hour quiz show, followed by another, was a bit much for Sunday listeners. The very popular Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me remains safely in its slot at 2:00 PM.

Yay! Back in the early 1980s, I would plan my time in the kitchen, for canning tomatoes and salsa, to coordinate with hearing Mountain Stage on KSUT. I don’t can anymore, but I look forward to hearing Mountain Stage again.

so glad it’s back. An old favorite of mine, I’ve missed it.
