This week on A Prairie Home Companion, it's our Second Annual Year-End Rewind with a compilation of 2008's memorable moments. We'll revisit the debuts of Nick Lowe, Nellie McKay and tenor Raul Melo. Yo-Yo Ma will toast the New Year, Martin Sheen will take on the role of James Joyce in an episode of The Lives of the Cowboys, and Brad Paisley sings a tune about leaving the toilet seat down. Guy Noir goes on Pope Patrol during the April 2008 papal visit to New York, and Ruth Harrison turns down a chance to sail the globe with a swarthy romance novelist. All that, plus we remember the Tollerud's trip to Costa Rica.
