Shows

Coming up this week on A Prairie Home Companion, we're back at The Town Hall in New York's eerily quiet Theater District. The very Nina Simone-ish Inga Swearingen keeps the jazz flowing again this week with her sweet California style, and Flatlander Joe Ely rides the West Texas wind up from Lubbock with his pal, Joel Guzman (a.k.a. El Pequeno Gigante). They're mixing up country, jazz and traditional Mexican for a piquant concoction that'll keep your neighbors guessing. Also with us, star of stage and screen, actor Tony Roberts. And as always, we'll have Rich Dworsky and The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, The Royal Academy of Radio Acting: Sue Scott, Tim Russell and Fred Newman, and The News from Lake Wobegon. We've steered clear of the writer's strike, the stage hands' strike, and if St. Paul Private Investigators Local 13 reaches a settlement this week, we'll have the latest from Guy Noir. It's all coming up this week, on A Prairie Home Companion.
