This week on A Prairie Home Companion, we're carving blue-ribbon pumpkins and drinking hot spiced cider at the Fitzgerald Theater, with very special guests, the Queen of the blues renaissance Bonnie Raitt, and firecrackers of the Canadian prairie The Wailin' Jennys. Also with us the Royal Academy of Radio Acting: Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Tom Keith, sitting in with the Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, the Manhattan maestro Andy Stein, plus an older guy in a rumpled tuxedo and red sneakers handing out the candy. Join us this Saturday for a 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).
