October 6, 2007
This week on A Prairie Home Companion, some of us may be feeling the chilling melancholy of a long winter ahead, so we invited hot jazz singer Inga Swearingen, soulful steel guitarist Cindy Cashdollar, sweet soul singer Jearlyn Steele, and improv-jazz drummer J.T. 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. So join us this week on your local public radio station for A Prairie Home Companion, live from the Fitzgerald Theater.
