This week: we look back to the fall of 2013 with a rebroadcast originally from the Fitzgerald Theater in downtown Saint Paul, Minnesota. Central Time troubadour Pokey LaFarge sings "Close the Door" and "All Night Long"; Heather Masse and pianist Jed Wilson perform "Everybody's Cryin' Mercy" and "Hey, That's No Way to Say Goodbye"; and Joe Newberry stops by with his tunes "The Darker the Night the Better I See" and "Singing As We Rise." Plus: Guy Noir meets a few irritable nursery rhyme characters, a message from Raoul and His Cool Car Service, and guitarist Dean Magraw delivers a little early autumn warmth on "Watchdoggin'" with help from Rich Dworsky and the band. In Lake Wobegon, Laurel returns to town from Long Beach, California, after 22 years.

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.
