This week on A Prairie Home Companion, we continue our seasonal stopover at the Town Hall with special guests, the prolific resophonic guitarist and the most recorded dobro player in history, Jerry Douglas and his band. We've got the 44th poet laureate of the United States, a Distinguished Professor of English at the City University of New York since 1968, Billy Collins. Also with us, the Royal Academy of Radio Acting: Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman, the News from Lake Wobegon, and sitting in with the Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band, the cunning commander of catgut Andy Stein. Join us this Saturday for a live broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion from the heart of Broadway, in New York City.

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).
