August 24, 2013

This week on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor, we rewind to September 2010 and our broadcast from the Minnesota State Fair Grandstand. Sara Watkins sings "I'll Be Home," Jearlyn and Jevetta Steele join Garrison on "Swing Down Chariot," The Cactus Blossoms harmonize on "Crazy Arms," and the Anoka High School Marching Band performs "Danse Macabre." In Lake Wobegon, fall begins to settle in.
