El Camino Real

Jearlyn Steele

This week on A Prairie Home Companion we escape the heavy burden of late February snow by heading to balmy San Diego, for a live broadcast performance from the San Diego Civic Theatre, with bright-eyed Bluegrass ambassadors Sara and Sean Watkins, the United States Navy Band Southwest, and from the Department of Gospel Music Studies, Jearlyn Steele. Plus, fiddler and mandolin player Richard Kriehn sitting in with Richard Dworsky and The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band: Pat Donohue, Gary Raynor and Peter Johnson. Plus, The Royal Academy of Radio Actors (Sue Scott, Tim Russell and Fred Newman) and the latest news from the buried plain.
