This week on A Prairie Home Companion, a sour mash of shows from Kentucky and Tennessee, with Sam Bush, Patty Loveless, The Memphis Horns, and Alvin Youngblood Hart. Writer Bobbie Ann Mason talks about the importance of radio, Guy Noir gets pulled into a sibling dispute over the production of organic bourbon at the family's distillery, Ruth Harrison resorts to hypnotism in an attempt to subdue the overzealous president of the library board, and in Lake Wobegon there's a new bartender at the Sidetrack Tap.
Audio available Sundays at noon.
