This week on A Prairie Home Companion we'll visit St. Louis and bring you a live broadcast from the fabulous Fox Theater, designed in the unique Siamese Byzantine style, and built in the 1920's as a silent movie palace. This week's special guests include, a terrific jazz / pop vocalist and songwriter Erin Bode, and the Guy's All-Star Shoe Band fills out its sound with an expert St. Louis horn section, including Dave Bargeron, Jon-Erik Kellso, Kathy Jensen, and our own Andy Stein on baritone sax. Also with us, the Royal Academy of Radio Acting: Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman, with the continuing adventures of Guy Noir Private Eye, The Lives of the Cowboys, and who knows what else, live this week from St. Louis.
