Where the Sky is Blue
This week on A Prairie Home Companion, our final winter rebroadcast, a blast of warmth originally from June 2013 at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Colin Hay sings "Send Somebody," Lily Tomlin and Martin Sheen join us for a few scripts, Paula Poundstone ponders life in L.A., and Jearlyn and Jevetta Steele ask "Are You Ready for a Miracle?" In Lake Wobegon, high school graduation brings to mind tales of senior pranks from years past.
Audio available Sundays at noon.
