January 15, 2011 broadcast with Sara Watkins, Abigail Washburn, and Tom Brosseau
The last time anyone can remember our host taking a break from his lifelong duty to radio hosting, Gerald Ford was President. This Saturday, he's going to sit back and relax while Sara Watkins intros the guests, cracks the jokes and plays a little string music all her own. With special guests, claw hammer-banjo jammer Abigail Washburn, and American musical storyteller Tom Brosseau, expect Guy Noir, the deep winter News from Lake Wobegon, and the Royal Academy of Radio Actors; Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Tom Keith. So fear not, the youngster comes with her fiddle finely tuned, the greatest band in radio--The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band--and a California tan.
