This week on A Prairie Home Companion, we'll wake up in the city that never sleeps and make a brand new start of it. With one of the loveliest voices in Irish traditional music Karan Casey, plus the master of tone, taste, and timing, fiddler Stuart Duncan, and a titan of the jazz tuba Howard Johnson and Gravity, this is a show not to be missed. Also with us, the Royal Academy of Radio Acting: Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman, the samaritans of sole, The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, and the News from Lake Wobegon. Join us this Saturday, live from the Town Hall in the City of New York.
