          The first 10 people to be inducted into the West Virginia Music Hall of Fame were announced in Charleston yesterday. And it was a real musical smorgasbord, including an avant-garde classical composer, the man who wrote the hit “Lean on Me,” and a country star who’s been dubbed the “King of the Novelty Song.”
