Positively West Virginia
Episode 141 - Michael Lipton - WVHoF

Michael Lipton is the Director of the West Virginia Music Hall of Fame, located in Charleston, WV. In addition to being an entrepreneur, Michael is also an accomplished electric guitar player.

The WV Music Hall of Fame was founded in 2005 as a non-profit organization dedicated to documenting and preserving the rich and lasting contributions West Virginians have made to all genres of American music. One of their primary goals is to provide education through themed displays, curriculum development and interactive sessions with students and teachers in schools around the state. Another part of their mission is to establish a permanent facility to house the Hall of Fame and an accompanying museum to exhibit and archive recordings and memorabilia.
