DOES THIS BUS GO TO DULUTH?

This week on A Prairie Home Companion, we're embracing the winter cold and heading up to the DECC auditorium in Duluth, Minnesota. We'll fight the frigid temperatures with some smoldering honky-tonk from Joe Ely and Joel Guzmán, and singer-songwriter Heather Masse will melt our hearts with a song or two. As always, we'll have the Royal Academy of Radio Actors with us: Sue Scott, Tim Russell, and Tom Keith; and of course, Rich Dworsky and The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band will be there too.
