from the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul
|The fall 1999 season saw the advent of live online chats from backstage at the Fitzgerald Theater in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota. As A Prairie Home Companion was being performed and broadcast, Sue Scott, Tim Russell, Tom Keith, and show staff and guests chatted and answered audience questions - read their comments in these chat transcripts.|
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).
