This week, it's a live broadcast performance of A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor from the Elliott Hall of Music at Purdue University. With special guests, tough-as-nails stringband Old Crow Medicine Show, and the University's ambassadors of song, the Purdue Varsity Glee Club. Plus, the Royal Academy of Radio Actors; Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and sound effects man Mr. Fred Newman, The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, and the latest News from Lake Wobegon.
  • Old Crow Medicine Show

    With a little luck and a whole lot of talent, Old Crow Medicine Show went from playing their slash-and-burn brand of old-time music on the streets of Boone, North Carolina, to bringing down the house at the Grand Ole Opry. Now based in Nashville, Grammy winners and recent Grand Ole Opry inductees Critter Fuqua, Kevin Hayes, Morgan Jahnig, Gill Landry, Chance McCoy, Ketch Secor, and Cory Younts are bringing audiences to their feet coast to coast and then some.
  • Purdue Varsity Glee Club

    Since their first performance - with 11 voices - in 1893, thePurdue Varsity Glee Club has brought recognition and honor to the university. These days, under the direction of William E. Griffel, the 50-plus members are always on the go. Over the years, they have traversed the U.S., performed at five presidential inaugurations, and represented Purdue University on multiple European tours and trips to Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and China.
