This weekend we're broadcasting live from the Ravinia Festival 2005 in Highland Park, Illinois. There'll be a lot of powerful female vocalists there with us: The Mila Vocal Ensemble, The Ditty Bops, our good friend Prudence Johnson. Plus, Howard Levy on harmonica, Andy Stein on violin, Garrison Keillor with the News From Lake Wobegon, and more. Join us.
