July 22, 2006
This week on A Prairie Home Companion, it's another steamy summertime rebroadcast featuring two shows from our February 2004 micro-tour through the South. The first stop: Hot Springs, Arkansas and then on to Spartanburg, South Carolina for Valentine's Day. Both shows feature the lightning-fast pickin' of Mr. Sam Bush. The legendary Doc Watson takes the stage, and Cindy Cashdollar sits in with The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band. Guy Noir heads south from St. Paul in search of a bad batch of grits, and of course there's the latest news from Lake Wobegon. Also with us, the Royal Academy of Radio Acting: Tim Russell, Sue Scott and Fred Newman.
