Dreams on a Little Island

Renee Fleming
Renée Fleming
March 23, 2013

This week on A Prairie Home Companion, one last spring rebroadcast before we head out on the road, a show originally from The Town Hall in April 2012. Renée Fleming sings "Hallelujah," Punch Brothers perform "New York City," and Heather Masse and Aoife O'Donovan sing "Time's a Hoax." Plus, Dusty and Lefty provide security on Governors Island, and in Lake Wobegon, Pastor Liz is stopped by the Highway Patrol after a boring blind date.

First Word
(Mar. 25, 2013)

First word typed on this spanking new machine is the one at the beginning of this very piece: "First." Just out of the box; what you are reading here is the virgin paragraph. (For whatever that's worth these days.) (Said...

Guy Noir and the Straight Skinny by Garrison Keillor

The old private eye bursts into print, trying to find the answer to the persistent question: how can I be made young and becoming? Shots ring out on the 12th floor of the Acme building, thugs beat down the door, and Guy and Sugar are reunited at last.
