December 30, 2006|
This week on A Prairie Home Companion, we'll wrap up our 2006 New York engagement with American bebop jazz pianist and vocalese singer Bob Dorough, jazz singer Prudence Johnson, and the Guy's All-Star Shoe Band will seem ten feet tall with the addition of early jazz superhero Vince Giordano and the mad hatter of violin, Andy Stein. We'll also have the Royal Academy of Radio Acting: Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman, the News from Lake Wobegon, and much more this Saturday from the Town Hall.
And if that weren't enough, there's another 3-hour show recorded live from Nashville on New Year's Eve.
