This week: a star-studded rebroadcast of our June 2013 visit to the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Scottish-Australian institution and world-class songwriter Colin Hay sings "Overkill" and tells the story of why everyone's always "Looking for Jack," and our Royal Academy of Radio Actors gets an infusion of Hollywood royalty, with Paula Poundstone, Martin Sheen, and Lily Tomlin lending their voices to Guy Noir and The Lives of the Cowboys. Plus: Jearlyn and Jevetta Steele light up the California night with "Are You Ready for a Miracle?" and Garrison delivers a poignant tribute to a family cat. In Lake Wobegon: a few tales of graduation ceremony pranks from over the 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.
