This week: we’re back in New York City to wrap up our live broadcasts for the year with another show from The Town Hall, with special guests Steve Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers, Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer, and Marina Franklin. Plus: a hot-off-the-presses Song of the Week and a few musician birthday highlights from Chris Thile and the band (singer Aoife O’Donovan, Richard Dworsky on keys, drummer Matt Chamberlain, guitarist Chris Eldridge, Alex Hargreaves on fiddle, and bassist Tim Lefebvre); a selection or two for the holidays; and scripts and scenes from the Royal Academy of Radio Actors, Serena Brook, Tim Russell, and Fred Newman. Tune in on your local public radio station or watch live (Saturday, 5pm - 7pm Central Time) at prairiehome.org!
