FIFTH ANNUAL JOKE SHOW|
Lena and Lettie Jokes
Lena and Lettie are taking their postprandial stroll past the
shops in their small town. Barber Bob has closed shop for the
day and is out back in the alley, standing by his incinerator,
burning the trash, floor sweepings and hair from the haircuts
he had given that day. As the incinerator burns, the early evening
breeze wafts some of the smoke over the building and to the sidewalk
in front where Lena and Lettie happen to be walking at the moment.
Lovingly selected from the earliest archives of A Prairie Home Companion, this heirloom collection represents the music from earliest years of the now legendary show: 1974–1976. With songs and tunes from jazz pianist Butch Thompson, mandolin maestro Peter Ostroushko, Dakota Dave Hull and the first house band, The Powdermilk Biscuit Band (Adam Granger, Bob Douglas and Mary DuShane).
