Shows

Coming up this week on A Prairie Home Companion, a show devoted to our four-legged friends: our pets. We'll hear a few tunes from the trusty Bertha's Kitty Boutique Songbook, including "Cat You'd Better Come Home," "The Haydn Cat," and "The Conscientious Cat." Stephanie Davis sings "Goodnight Little Cowpup," Greg Brown sings "Like a Dog" and -- in great French tradition -- the Cafe Boeuf now allows dogs. Guy Noir investigates the disappearance of a fish named Kevin, Dusty and Lefty are in the hoosegow for accidentally shooting a pet cocker spaniel, and we'll hear Rossini's little-known seldom-heard "Cat Duet." In Lake Wobegon, Mr. Hoppe gets a new terrier, Loretta, who rides shotgun in his car wearing her seat belt, of course.
