Mon, 17 Oct 2016 10:00:00 -0600This week: we're celebrating the beautiful Minnesota autumn weather with another live broadcast from indoors at the Fitzgerald Theater on Exchange Street in downtown Saint Paul. We'll have music from Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats -- a blast of rock'n'roll with roots in Missouri, the Rocky Mountains, and the classic Stax sound -- and folksinger, songwriter, and composer Anaïs Mitchell; plus expertise and observations from writer, comedian, and adjudicator John Hodgman. Our host Chris Thile will debut a new song, hot off the press, with a little help from The First-Call Radio Players (Richard Dworsky on piano, guitarist Chris Eldridge, Brittany Haas on fiddle, Sarah Jarosz singing and playing banjo and octave mandolin, bassist Paul Kowert, and drummer Ted Poor); and our Royal Academy of Radio Actors, Tim Russell, Serena Brook, and Fred Newman, will round things out with a few scripts and sponsor messages. Grab yourself a Powdermilk Biscuit or two -- heavens, they're tasty and expeditious! -- and join us down at the public radio end of the dial, or watch live (Saturday, 5pm - 7pm Central Time) at prairiehome.org.
