This week on A Prairie Home Companion, we'll limber up for this week's election exercise with a brisk live broadcast from the Fitzgerald Theater. Joining us, the voice that makes the bluegrass green, Larry Sparks and The Lonesome Ramblers, plus Grammy winning singer, songwriter, and soul-miner Shawn Colvin and her Texas trio. Also this week, The Royal Academy of Radio Acting: Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Tom Keith, The News from Lake Wobegon, and Pat Donohue finally gets that vacation in Milwaukee he's been angling for.
