January 12, 2008 rebroadcast with Joe Ely, Joel Guzman, The High Flyers, Molly Ivins, Tish Hinojosa, The Derailers, and Roy Blount, Jr.
Coming up this week on A Prairie Home Companion, the January thaw on the frozen tundra continues (for now) and to keep the heat turned up we'll revisit the live music capital of the world: Austin, Texas. Featuring Joe Ely, Joel Guzman and The High Flyers all plug in and belt out some fine Texas honky-tonk. Plus, we remember our dear friend Molly Ivins who was on the show with us. We've alsog got songstress Tish Hinojosa sings "Estrellita," The Derailers rock the house and Roy Blount Jr. spins a little southern humor. The cowboys, Dusty and Lefty, ride into town along with The Guy's-All Star Shoe Band and The Royal Academy of Radio Acting. So sharpen your spurs and get ready for a little Texas heat this week.
