A Prairie Home Companion: There Is A Winding Down

This week on A Prairie Home Companion, we kick off our summer repeats with a classic recorded all the way back on November 23, 1985 at the Bridges Auditorium at the Claremont Colleges in Claremont, California. Willie Nelson sings a few tunes with our band (featuring Chet AtkinsJohnny GimblePeter Ostroushko, and Butch Thompson), andTom Keith performs his version of "Turkey in the Straw," plus, music from El Mariachi Los Galleros de Pedro Rey, and saw player David Weiss. In Lake Wobegon, Senator K. Thorvaldson's mysterious love Laura comes to town to meet his family.
