This week on A Prairie Home Companion we'll navigate the Rocky Mountains to bring you a live broadcast from the War Memorial Opera House in San Francisco. With this week's special guests: a champion of American roots music and brilliant performer, Maria Muldaur; San Francisco's all-gal urban old-time teardown The Stairwell Sisters; and joining the Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, the rainy day man, Andy Stein. Also with us, the Royal Academy of Radio Acting: Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman, the News from Lake Wobegon, and much more. Join us this Saturday, live from the Golden State.

Lovingly selected from the earliest archives of A Prairie Home Companion, this heirloom collection represents the music from earliest years of the now legendary show: 1974–1976. 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).
