This week on A Prairie Home Companion, we'll welcome the Grammyt Award winning Cajun institution known as BeauSoleil with Michael Doucet, and prolific world jazz trombonist and composer, Roswell Rudd. In honor of the late, great jazz chanteuse Blossom Dearie who died last week, Heather Masse will sing "Peel Me A Grape" on the show. We'll also have opera legend Vern Sutton. And, since it'll be Valentine's Day, we're going to read the winners from our Valentine's Day Poem and Song Contest too. Also with us, The Royal Academy of Radio Acting: Mark Benninghofen, Sue Scott, and Tom Keith, The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, and The News from Lake Wobegon. It's all live, this week from the Fitzgerald Theater in downtown St. Paul.
