Photos from the Show
This week on A Prairie Home Companion, a summer compilation of shows from The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, including an episode of The Lives of the Cowboys with Emmylou Harris and Sara Watkins, and a young and hip Nashville duo called the Civil Wars. Plus, a few archival items from the dim mists of antiquity (a.k.a. the early '90s) with Chet Atkins, Buddy Emmons, Mary Chapin Carpenter and John Prine. And in Lake Wobegon, Marilyn Magandantz finally got fed up with Gene's chuckling. She moved to Florida, dyed her hair red, and changed her name.
