February: The ebb of Minnesota life. With frozen pipes, a dark cloudy sky, and a self-described vampire running for Governor, it seemed like a good time to get out of town for awhile. So this week, we’ll go to the beautiful Bayfront Amphitheater in Miami, Florida. Featuring jazz luminaries Vince Giordano, Butch Thompson, and Dan Barrett, Cuban chanteuse Aymee Nuviola and her band, and sitting in with the Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band, Andy Stein. Also with us, the Royal Academy of Radio Acting, the News from Lake Wobegon, and much more this week on A Prairie Home Companion.

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).
