    November 07, 2017 — Charleston, Kanawha

    From garbage mogul, acclaimed journalist, newspaper publisher, film composer… while always making his bed as a working musician… A whacky trip down memory lane down Michael Lipton”

    After growing up in Miami, FL, Michael Lipton moved to rural Calhoun County, WV, in 1973. While there he played in the group Big Money and started King Pin Trash Service, the only trash collection service in the county. In the mid-eighties, after his house was struck by lightning and burned to the ground, he moved to Charleston where he began writing for The Charleston Gazette and freelancing for a number of national music magazines including Creem, LA Weekly, Launch, Spin and Yahoo Music. Lipton served as the editor and co-publisher of the statewide entertainment paper Graffiti for 15 years until it was sold to Ogden Publications in 2004. He won an Edward R. Murrow Award and Columbia School of Journalism Award for his music on Trey Kay’ radio documentary, “The Great Textbook War.” Lipton has also scored three feature films produced and directed by Danny Boyd, documentaries, and short films. In the late 1980s, he was hired as the electric guitarist in the house band for the NPR show “Mountain Stage.” He founded the West Virginia Music Hall of Fame in 2005 and continues to serve as Executive Director. In addition to producing all of the WVMHoF’s projects, events and induction ceremonies, he produced the feature documentary, “WV My Home: Musicians and the Mountain State Experience” which was funded in part by the WV Humanities Council and the WV Legislature.
