All But Gone

This week: our penultimate live broadcast of the season, from the Koussevitzky Music Shed at Tanglewood in Lenox, Massachusetts. Sarah Jarosz joins us with her arsenal of instruments for songs and duets with the host, and she'll be back with us in late July for our big cross-country tour. Rachel Manke is traveling light with her ukulele, and Peter Rowan adds some Old School bluegrass straight from the Big Mon tradition. Sara Bareilles and Nadia DiGiallonardo team up to belt Broadway melodies out into the Berkshires, and radio drama abounds with The Royal Academy of Radio Actors — Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and sound effects man Fred Newman. Rich Dworsky and the crisp quartet of Richard Kriehn, Jonathan Dresel, Larry Kohut and Chris Siebold will deliver summer stuff for the live broadcast, and work on remaining hydrated for the big non-broadcast sing-along that always follows our Tanglewood show. Add the mid-summer happenings in Lake Wobegon and it's all right there on your local public radio station this Saturday evening. Tune in.

Post to the Host
The Blind Cave Pigs of Lake Wobegon
June 9, 2015

To the Host: Hello Mr. Keillor! For 35 years I've wondered: Did the people of Lake Wobegon manage to avoid the wrath of the Blind Cave Pigs? Or did the descendants of the wild pigs manage to break through the cellar walls, and exact some measure of revenge for having been driven underground by the menfolk of the town? I know the men did that to make the area safe for the children, but did it last? Many thanks if you can clear up this enduring mystery!

Listened to the show Saturday and it was not bad. Spent a good amount of time going through the kitchen cupboards, cleaning and wiping and pulling out things I haven't used for years so I might include them in the garage sale I'm having this week...
