West Virginia Public Broadcasting will debut two new shows early next month. On Saturdays at 10 p.m. beginning 7/5, host Joni Deutsch will link the past to the present with the best new and old, up-and-coming and classic indie pop and blues rock, and everything in-between, on “A Change of Tune.”
Deutsch, a West Virginia Public Radio announcer who also works with “Mountain Stage,” promises to “give you enough music headlines, back stories and connections to get you through your weekend.”
”Bill Lynch’s “Lost Highways” will air immediately following that, from 11 p.m. to midnight every Saturday, also beginning 7/5, and features indie rock, alternative country, Americana, rockabilly and much more, says the Charleston Gazette.
Lynch, a Charleston Gazette staff writer who covers arts and entertainment, says “Lost Highways” will cover “Songs you love, stuff you might have missed and fresh sounds from artists traveling down musical paths where other people don’t go — plus interviews with songwriters, performers and people with something to say about American music.
West Virginia Public Radio will also begin airing “Mountain Stage After Midnight” Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 5 a.m. That’s in addition to the regular “Mountain Stage” program, which is broadcast at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
