This week on A Prairie Home Companion, the staff is on its annual ice fishing retreat to the mighty Lake of the Woods, and so we're revisiting two shows that we did from The Fitzgerald Theater. Roy Blount Jr. and Chuck Mead of BR-549 will give a talk on the philosophy of honky-tonk music, and Dusty and Lefty make an appearance at St. Paul's Winter Carnival. Plus, Nellie McKay's debut performance, Becky Schlegel, Suzy Bogguss and an episode of The Lives of English Majors.
