This week on A Prairie Home Companion, it's our season kick-off event at the Fitzgerald Theater, featuring Austin's hangdogs of honky tonk The Derailers, Nashville's hardest working dobro player Jerry Douglas, and the Virginia Vagabonds Robin and Linda Williams. Also with us, Prudence Johnson, Rich Dworsky and The Guy's-All Star Shoe Band, and the Royal Academy of Radio Acting; Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Tom Keith.
Following the live broadcast, Mr. K. hosts our 7th Annual Meatloaf Supper & Street Dance (rain or shine!) on Exchange Street in front of the theater. We'll be serving up $5 suppers, plenty of dance tunes and even some cash prizes. Contests this year include:

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).
