This week on A Prairie Home Companion we'll revisit two shows we did from the Bayfront Amphitheater in Miami. Featuring Aimee Nuviola, Donato Poveda, Vince Giordano sitting in with The Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band, The Royal Academy of Radio Acting: Tim Russell, Sue Scott , and Fred Newman, and The News from Lake Wobegon, where we’ll hear the story of Jimmy the school bus driver. Join us this week for some Cuban music and a blast of the calor de enero.

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).
