This week: a look back to our October 22 broadcast from the Fitzgerald Theater in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats perform “Wasting Time” and “Out on the Weekend,” Anäis Mitchell sings “Why We Build the Wall” and “Clyde Waters,” and John Hodgman shared a few thoughts on beards and septic systems. Plus: Chris Thile’s Song of the Week, “Dates”; our Royal Academy of Radio Actors with a few new Grandparent names and Bertrand Falstaff Heine’s review of this season’s snow tires; and a rollicking medley of Swedish fiddle tunes.

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.
