WRUR 88.5 Different Radio

Mountain Stage

Sunday 2PM - 4PM

A great deal has changed since 1964. But when rockabilly purveyor Bill Kirchen performed "The Times They Are A-Changin'" on Mountain Stage in 2017, it brought it back into focus.

A throwback to classic southern soul music from a modern-day band, our Song of the Week comes from Alabama's St. Paul & the Broken Bones. Making their second appearance on Mountain Stage with songs from the highly acclaimed second full-length album "Sea of Noise," here's "Flow With It."

Conductor, multi-instrumentalist and composer of more than 100 orchestral and chamber works, "the Renaissance man of American music" David Amram performs a stunning rendition of Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World."

This week's encore broadcast of Mountain Stage celebrates the program's 900th episode.  Our Song of the Week is the best-known hit by the hardest of hardcore troubadours, Steve Earle. Here's Earle with his band The Dukes performing 1988's "Copperhead Road."

This week's broadcast of Mountain Stage marks the return of two voices: the first in special guest host Joni Deutsch, and the second in classically eclectic pop maestro Kishi Bashi. 

In the fall of 2017, Bruce Cockburn joined Neil Young in being inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame. Our Song of the Week, "Lovers In a Dangerous Time," helps justify that distinction, and can be heard on this week's broadcast during Cockburn's sixth appearance on Mountain Stage with Larry Groce since 2004.

Pink Martini On Mountain Stage

Apr 19, 2017

Pink Martini returns to Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Clay Center in Charleston, W.Va. Originally founded in 1994 as a performance ensemble to liven up political fundraisers, the Oregon-based group has since grown into an international sensation with its cosmopolitan mix of classical, lounge and pop-jazz.
