This week on A Prairie Home Companion, we're back from our adventures out West. Riding home with the wind at our backs and the promise of snow in the clouds, we're powerless to continue our fantasy that summer isn't "quite" over. So turn your air conditioner off and your radio on, for another broadcast from good old Saint Paul. With our special guests, from Hawaii, Grammy award winner Taj Mahal, Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra Concertmaster Steven Copes, and sitting in with the Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, the one man string section, John Niemann. Also with us, the Royal Academy of Radio Acting: Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Tom Keith, so tune in this Saturday for another live broadcast of 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).
