Town Hall Spring and Fall
This week on A Prairie Home Companion our last springtime compilation program before we're live again next week at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, including bits and pieces from our spring and fall runs at The Town Hall in New York City. Raúl Melo sings Puccini's "Che Gelida Manina," Nellie McKay sings "I Want to Get Married" and Brad Paisley sings "I'm Still a Guy." Plus, Guy Noir hosts a papal visit to the Big Apple and a message from Bob's Bank (Save at the Sign of the Sock!). And in Lake Wobegon, Darlene down at the Chatterbox Café has been visiting online chat rooms and it's been getting a little racy. It's finally spring and love is in the air, this week.
Audio available Sundays at noon.
