This week: The Old Scout is back at the mic for a live broadcast from the Fitzgerald Theater on Exchange Street in Saint Paul, Minnesota. We'll have a six-string clinic from the master himself, Leo Kottke, and high-octane bluegrass from Della Mae, up from Nashville by way of Boston. Plus: the Royal Academy of Radio Actors -- Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman -- will be on hand for scripts and scenes about winter life in Minnesota; music director and pianist Rich Dworsky conducts our rock'n'roll radio orchestra (Bernie Dresel on drums, bassist Larry Kohut, Richard Kriehn on mandolin and fiddle, and Chris Siebold, guitar); and we'll have an update on two weeks' worth of happenings and News from Lake Wobegon. Join us over the airwaves or watch live (Saturday, 5pm Central) at prairiehome.org!

Classical MPR's broadcast of Metropolitan Opera live will briefly pre-empt the start of A Prairie Home Companion on January 5, March 2 and May 11. For the complete broadcast, join MPR News on Sunday at 11 a.m.
