August 26, 2006 rebroadcast with Paula Poundstone, Roy Blount, Jr., Vince Giordano, and Spider John Koerner
This week on A Prairie Home Companion, it's jokes, jokes and more jokes: Ole and Lena jokes, light bulb jokes, blonde jokes, man-walks-into-a-bar jokes, knock-knock jokes, lawyer jokes... You get the idea. It is our special Joke Show compilation broadcast, (from April and November of 2004) featuring Paula Poundstone and Roy Blount, Jr. Paula bravely steps to the mic for a duet with Garrison about friendship, and Roy appears as a "Cowboy Consultant" in an episode of The Lives of the Cowboys. The King of the Bass Sax, Vince Giordano, sings a great old Jelly Roll Morton song called the "Hyena Stomp." And Spider John Koerner sings about his early, rebellious days back in the 60's with a song called "Good Time Charlie." In Lake Wobegon, there was talk of renovating Wally, the talking Walleye. And Arlene Bunsen had to send letters of apology to everyone who came to her Easter dinner. More about that this weekend, along with some great music from The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band and expertly delivered jokes from The Royal Academy of Radio Actors: Sue Scott, Tim Russell and Tom Keith.
