April in New York

The Assad Brothers

This week on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor, a spring rebroadcast of a show originally from April 2011 at The Town Hall in New York City. The Assad Brothers play "Palhaço," Robin and Linda Williams join Garrison for a Hazel Dickens tribute, The DiGiallonardo Sisters sing "Somewhere Out There," and a host of special guests help us celebrate Shakespeare. In Lake Wobegon, Pastor Liz organizes an outdoor procession to celebrate Holy Week.

We're testing out a brand new audio player that will work on phones and other devices!

Listen to this week's show and let us know what you think. (Audio available Sundays at noon.)
