December 26, 2009 rebroadcast with Renee Fleming, Odetta, and The Boys of the Lough
This week on A Prairie Home Companion, as our cast and crew continue to snowshoe their way out of the great snowy East toward San Francisco, we've assembled a holiday highlight show to cover the gap. Soprano Renee Fleming sings "Hard Times", our dear departed friend Odetta sings "Poor Little Jesus", and The Boys of the Lough perform "The Christ Child's Lullaby." Plus, a choir of singing sheep in The Lives of the Cowboys, Buster, The Dog of Christmas, a conversation with the Big Man himself, Santa Claus, and our traditional Silent Night sing-a-long. Join us this week for a no cost, no stress, day after the holiday show, with plenty of pickled herring, Pinnekjott, and good cheer.
