This week we continue our Minneapolis micro-tour with a big show at the Orpheum Theater (a famous vaudeville house, where a ticket to see the Marx Brothers was only 47 cents!), featuring blazing Country star Brad Paisley, VocalEssence with choirmaster Philip Brunelle, and the dulcet vocal tones of Prudence Johnson. Also with us, the Royal Academy of Radio Acting: Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Tom Keith, the Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, and much more. Join us on the Westside this Saturday, where we can leave the 20-foot neon "APPLAUSE" signs on the truck and people still cheer.

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).
