December 29, 2007 rebroadcast with Terry Gross, Martin Sheen, James Taylor, Wilco, Randy Newman, and Carole King
Coming up this week on A Prairie Home Companion, we'll revisit the bits of 2007 that we remember fondly, and possibly one or two we'd like to forget. There were plenty of memorable firsts this past year, including: public radio host Terry Gross in an episode of Guy Noir, Martin Sheen singing a Quaker folk hymn, and James Taylor with "Something In The Way She Moves". Also on the highlight reel, windy city rockers Wilco, piano man Randy Newman, and legendary singer-songwriter Carole King. So sit back, check the freshness date on your egg nog, and get ready for a visit from the ghosts of broadcasts past. Also with us, The Royal Academy of Radio Acting: Tim Russell, Sue Scott, Fred Newman, and Tom Keith, The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, and The News from Lake Wobegon.
