Last Week's Show // March 1, 2014
This week on A Prairie Home Companion, our final winter rebroadcast, a blast of warmth originally from June 2013 at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Colin Hay sings "Send Somebody," Lily Tomlin and Martin Sheen join us for a few scripts, Paula Poundstone ponders life in L.A., and Jearlyn and Jevetta Steele ask "Are You Ready for a Miracle?" In Lake Wobegon, high school graduation brings to mind tales of senior pranks from years past.
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).
