West Virginia Public Radio ... building trust every day.
If you listen to Mountain Stage on a regular basis, then chances are you're an avid listener of Public Radio in general. Like all the programs you hear on your local public radio station, Mountain Stage depends on the contributions from its listeners. Though public radio programming is always and will continue to be a free service, it certainly is not produced without cost. Nationwide, stations are holding their fall fund drive campaigns and as a listener to Mountain Stage, we hope you'll consider a donation if you haven't done so already.
You can contribute to your local station or provide a donation in the name of Mountain Stage through a pledge to WV Public Broadcasting, the network that produces Mountain Stage.
Live audience at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, WV.
We like to think Mountain Stage is unique because you don't hear live performances on the radio much at all. Mountain Stage provides our audience with a unique performance setting and then we share that experience nationwide through NPR and around the world on the Voice of America. We also provide a comprehensive ARCHIVE of the show for those of you who like to listen on the go, and we upload our segments every week to NPR.org/MountainStage so you can listen to each guest individually.
We even produced a special "Best of" Fund Raising Edition of Mountain Stage that you may hear during this pledge season. We tried to pick a wide variety of artists and styles, music from around the world, some established guests and some emerging artists, all of which presented in the spontaneous and exciting live performance setting that Mountain Stage provides. Click here to see a list of the songs we chose for our fundraiser episode. Music by Neko Case, Martin Sexton, Todd Snider, Steve Earle, Rosanne Cash, Nellie McKay and so much more is included in this two-hour special.
We hear from listeners all the time who appreciate what we do and we always appreciate your feedback. Our listeners and audience, be it live in Charleston or on the radio, are the ones who make our show possible. If you have the financial means to do so and feel that Mountain Stage is an important part of your listening routine then we hope you'll become a member today.
