Shows

This week on A Prairie Home Companion, as we embark on our maiden voyage through the Western Caribbean, we bring you another sampler show featuring bits and pieces from two shows we did at the Fitzgerald this past fall. Singer-songwriter Neko Case sings "Middle Cyclone," Jeff Tweedy of Wilco sings "Deeper Down," Patty Loveless sings "The Bramble and the Rose," and sibling duo Jearlyn and Jevetta Steele belt out "Baby, I Love You!" In The Lives of the Cowboys, Dusty threatens to end their partnership and take a job on a fishing boat, and a message from Beebopareebop Rhubarb pie regarding the revolutionary "thermal thong." Plus Connie Evingson, Guy Noir's bad luck with the lottery, and a story about Garrison's time as the student manager of the Golden Gopher football team at the University of Minnesota.
