April 22, 2006
This week, A Prairie Home Companion travels to the Mayo Civic Center Arena in Rochester, Minnesota. We may need a complete physical to be sure we can handle the excitement of our featured guests, Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris, who will be performing duets from their forthcoming album "All The Roadrunning."
Also with us the glowing gospel voice of Ms. Jearlyn Steele, the Royal Academy of Radio Acting: Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Tom Keith, the News From Lake Wobegon, and last but not least, sitting in with the Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, "Mr. Wonderful," Andy Stein. Join us this Saturday for A Prairie Home Companion!
