This week on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor, we kick our run of summer repeats with a show originally broadcast from The Town Hall in New York City on April 9, 2005. Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks play "You Shake That Thing," Odetta sings the "Weeping Willow Blues," pianist André Watts performs Chopin's "Nocturne in C Sharp Minor," and Andy Stein joins The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band on fiddle and saxophone. In Lake Wobegon, the high school prom coincides with the local farmers' manure-spreading week.
Audio available Sundays at noon.
