This week on A Prairie Home Companion we're headed down to the Rhubarb Festival in Lanesboro, Minnesota. Where, with a few samples of the coveted "BeeBopAreeBop" recipe, we'll pucker the pie holes of purists from Pigeon Falls to Plainfield. Joining us, Texas honky-tonk legend Joe Ely with guitarist Rob Gjersoe, local ladies The Rhubarb Sisters will sing some songs about the beloved Rheum, plus longtime duo Bob Bovee and Gail Heil will pitch in a tune or two, and Rich Dworsky and The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band will kick up a cloud of dust out on the Lanesboro softball field. Also with us, The Royal Academy of Radio Acting: Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Tom Keith, The News from Lake Wobegon, and much more coming up this Saturday on A Prairie Home Companion.
