This week on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor, our summer repeats roll on with a show originally from June 30, 2007 at the Koussevitzky Music Shed at Tanglewood in Lenox, Massachusetts. James Taylor sings "Everybody Has the Blues," violinist Jaime Laredo and cellist Sharon Robinson play a few tunes composed by Andy Stein, and Inga Swearingen joins Garrison on "I Think of You." In Lake Wobegon, the Hansens' dove-breeding business goes awry.
