Every year around this time I get an itchy foot and find myself fidgeting. Something in the air makes me want to pack a small duffel bag and leave the city limits to be free under a wide-open sky and enjoy the breeze that is so good it must have come from heaven. Something tells me this week's show will reflect a little of that.
Official September 30, 2006 show info:
This week on a Prairie Home Companion, we travel west to Montana, land of Ponderosa Pines, Blackspotted Cutthroat Trout, and Grizzly Bears the size of compact cars. We'll be broadcasting live from the University of Montana's Adams Center, in Missoula, with featured guests including Montana Singer-Songwriter Stephanie Davis, the Manhattan Maestro Andy Stein, and other special guests to be announced this week. Also with us, The Royal Academy of Radio Acting: Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman, The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, and the News from Lake Wobegon. Join us this Saturday from Big Sky Country, where we'll turn the horses loose, "...'cause you can't ride 'em in the chute!"
If you aren't in the area or can't hit the road, fire up A Prairie Home Companion's homepage to listen to the show and enjoy the company of fellow listeners here.
