This week on A Prairie Home Companion, we'll layer up our geese fleece and huddle close for another live broadcast from the Fitzgerald Theater. With special guests, BR5-49 front man Chuck Mead, Bluegrass singer Becky Schlegel, singer-songwriter Nellie McKay, humorist Roy Blount Jr., The Royal Academy of Radio Actors; Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Tom Keith, and the always soleful Guy's All-Star Shoe Band. Plus, in Lake Wobegon, Clint Bunsen has been working double overtime jumping cars. So, keep your block heater plugged in, wash your long johns, and turn your radio on for some January cheer this Saturday.

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).
