Summer Squamish

Brandi Carlile

This week on A Prairie Home Companion a mix of two shows we did earlier this year from Seattle, Washington with The Wailin' Jennys singing "Bird Song," Pat Donohue with "Red House" by Seattle-born Jimi Hendrix, and in The Lives of the Cowboys, Dusty and Lefty have jobs with "Foam on the Range" coffee. Brandi Carlile sings "Folsom Prison Blues," Nellie McKay celebrates Doris Day and The Henriettas come up from Berkeley, California to sing "Woe Is Me." Plus, Garrison recites a poem by Raymond Carver and in Lake Wobegon, the smell of freshly mown grass becomes Proust's madeleine, conjuring up memories of young love on a summer afternoon.
