Coming to you this week from the beautiful state of Georgia, where spring has sprung like a bell's been rung, we'll welcome special guests, the "first couple" of old-time country music, Norman and Nancy Blake, performing with old-time master fiddler James Bryan and his daughter, guitarist and singer, Rachel Bryan. Also with us, the Royal Academy of Radio Actors: Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman, the Guy's All-Star Shoe Band with Richard Dworsky, and the News from Lake Wobegon. It'll be all peaches and cream this week on A Prairie Home Companion.

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).
