Loud Guitars and Big Suspicions
This week, another trip into the public radio vaults and a show originally from June 2009 at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Sheryl Crow plays "Hard to Make a Stand," k.d. lang performs "Thread," Martin Sheen tries to cover up a few of his early film roles, and Heather Masse sings "Midnight Sun." In Lake Wobegon, Pastor Ingqvist counsels prospective newlyweds.
Lovingly selected from the earliest archives of A Prairie Home Companion, this heirloom collection represents the music from earliest years of the now legendary show: 1974–1976. With songs and tunes from jazz pianist Butch Thompson, mandolin maestro Peter Ostroushko, Dakota Dave Hull and the first house band, The Powdermilk Biscuit Band (Adam Granger, Bob Douglas and Mary DuShane).
