This week: we're staying out East for the first live broadcast of our winter run at The Town Hall on West 43rd Street in New York City. We've got a Thanksgiving spread's worth of fantastic talent, including eloquent pianist and classical music ambassador Jeremy Denk, and the stunning a capella harmonies of girls' quartet GQ. Plus: a cornucopia of scripts and scenes featuring our Royal Academy of Radio Actors, Tim Russell and Sue Scott; YouTube sensation Melanie Torres goes head to head with sound effects man Fred Newman on a menagerie of animal calls; pianist and music director Rich Dworsky dishes out slices of radio rhythm and blues with The November Boys (drummer Bernie Dresel, bassist Larry Kohut, Richard Kriehn on mandolin and fiddle, and Chris Siebold on guitar); and the host serves up the latest News from Lake Wobegon. Pile up a plate of leftovers and we'll see you on the radio Saturday evening.

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.
