Once More from the Top

The Derailers

This week on A Prairie Home Companion, while the 1978 Winnebago is being tuned up for the remainder of our live broadcast season, we'll rebroadcast this season's opener from The Fitzgerald Theater. The Derailers bring a little Texas honky tonk to Minnesota with "She Left Me Cold," Ira Glass appears in an episode of Guy Noir as a fugitive named Irwin Krpsntzch, Jearlyn and Jevetta Steele bring the house down with "Soothe Me," and Garrison and Holly Jones sing "Duquesne Whistle." In Lake Wobegon, Mr. Lofgren's orchard produces an exceptional harvest of his "Julia" apples.
