This week on A Prairie Home Companion we're driving deep into Washtenaw County to bring you a live broadcast from the Hill Auditorium in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We'll have big-time country artist Suzy Bogguss on stage, and Powerhouse Americana duo The Milroys will drive down from Ferndale and sing a few tunes. As always, we have the Royal Academy of Radio Actors; Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman, The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band with a special pair of guest shoes, Howard Levy and Joe Savage, and The News from Lake Wobegon.

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).
