Shows

This week on A Prairie Home Companion, we must've been using just the right bait and tackle, because we've landed some big ones for Saturday's live broadcast from the Fitzgerald Theater, including the one who taught us you have to be cruel to be kind, Nick Lowe, the greatest television president of the 21st century, actor Martin Sheen, and the honky-tonk band that keeps Hank William's foot tapping in the grave, BR549 (Chuck Mead, Mark Miller, Chris Scruggs, and Shaw Wilson). Also with us, the otherworldly operatic voice of Maria Jette, the Royal Academy of Radio Acting; Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Tom Keith, The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band with Rich Dworsky, and The News from Lake Wobegon. Join us this week on your local public radio station for an all-new installment of A Prairie Home Companion.
