This week on A Prairie Home Companion it's a reunion of the "Neale Diamond Trio", as guitarists Phil Heywood and Dan Neale sidle up next to our own Pat Donohue to compare manicures and guitar licks in a finger-picking free for all. We're also happy to have master vocalists Prudence Johnson and Vern Sutton on board to give Garrison a few tips. We've also nabbed several cast members from the Minnesota Opera's production of The Grapes of Wrath going on just down the street. Guy Noir will be working the stage door and a new case for Presidents' Day, and sitting in with the Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, Minnesota Jazzman Butch Thompson and the Manhattan Maestro, Andy Stein. International sound effects superstar Tom Keith joins Sue Scott and Tim Russell as the Royal Academy of Radio Acting, and of course, there's always news from Lake Wobegon as the ice fishing gets interesting over a long holiday weekend. Join us this Saturday for the latest.
