In our quest for continuing adult education ("co-elder-cation"), we've planned a field trip to the University of Texas Performing Arts Center in Austin. We'll broadcast live from the Bass Concert Hall, with special guests Cindy Cashdollar, Elana James, and Red Volkaert, known collectively as The High-Flyers, and hailing from somewhere between Route 66 and the Rock Island Railroad line, we welcome Rock n' Roll icon Joe Ely. Also with us: The Royal Academy of Radio Acting; Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman, and sitting in with the Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, the irrepressible Andy Stein.
Don't miss a hot Texas takedown, 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).
