This week on A Prairie Home Companion, a mix of shows from Durango, Greeley, Loveland and Colorado Springs, Colorado with Robin and Linda Williams singing "Cool Water," an episode of The Lives of the Cowboys in which Dusty and Lefty are mistaken for yuppies, The Durango Children's Chorale with an ode to the women of Durango, and The Hot Club of Cowtown. Plus, The Haunted Windchimes sing "The Ballad of Human Progress" and in Lake Wobegon, Bruno (a.k.a. The Fishing Dog) tears through Irene Bunsen's tomato patch with devastating results.
  • Robin and Linda Williams

    "Individually their voices can melt cheese, and in duet they can do all-purpose welding," Garrison Keillor has said of Robin and Linda Williams. Singing the music they love, be it bluegrass, folk, old-time, or acoustic country, these two have carved out a more than three-decade career that has taken them from Carnegie Hall to the Hollywood Bowl. They first appeared on A Prairie Home Companion in 1975, the same year they recorded their first album. Back 40 - marking 40 years on the road and 40 years of marriage - was released in 2013 on Red House Records.
