Shows
This week on A Prairie Home Companion, it's our annual New York Christmas broadcast. Like a 10ft. Douglas fir laden with dazzling ornaments, we'll have an abundance of brilliant talent, including the most celebrated figure in folk music, Odetta, Broadway behemoth Walter Bobbie, conductor and pianist Rob Fisher, and Tony Award winning actress-singer Kristin Chenoweth. Plus, we'll welcome a very special mystery guest, a noted American composer, who will premiere an original holiday opus for neglected orchestral instruments. Also with us, the Royal Academy of Radio Acting: Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman. Sitting in with The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, fiddler on the loose, Andy Stein. Join us this Saturday for a special holiday show from the Town Hall on West 43rd street.
