This week on A Prairie Home Companion, we've got barrels of SPF 50 on hand for our visit to the Neal S. Blaisdell Center in beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii. With very special guests, the legendary and seldom seen Hawaiian band Na Pali, traditional Hawaiian songstresses Puamana, slack-key guitarists Danny Carvalho and Owana Salazar, as well as Minnesota's own mandolin maestro, Peter Ostroushko. Also with us, the Royal Academy of Radio Acting: Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman, the Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, the News from Lake Wobegon, and much more. Join us this Saturday, for a live broadcast from Honolulu, Hawaii.
