Bates to mix up some new colors for fall. Also with us, the Royal Academy of Radio Acting; Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Tom Keith, The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band with fifth shoe Andy Stein, and The News From Lake Wobegon.

This week on A Prairie Home Companion, we mark All Saints' Day with a special Halloween sampler. The bloodthirsty un-dead are lined up for our Annual Vampire Amateur Singing Contest, Guy Noir goes trick-or-treating, and we dust off the enormous "Songbook Of Death" for a few favorites. Maria Jette sings Mozart's little-known Halloween aria, and we'll check on everyone's favorite delusional basement dweller, Larry. So check the batteries in your flashlight, be generous with the candy, and never stomp on a burning paper bag left on your doorstep. It's willowy figures in white, a squawking raven, and other creepy characters, this week on A Prairie Home Companion.
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).
