Next Broadcast:

Randy Newman, Margo Price, and Alice Wetterlund
This week: we're back at the Fitzgerald Theater in Saint Paul, Minnesota for one more hometown broadcast before we head off on the road for visits to Pasadena, San Diego, New York, and beyond. We'll have composer, singer, arranger, and pianist Randy Newman for songs full of wit, warmth, and well-honed satire; Margo Price brings her crackling band up from Nashville to turn the Fitz into a honky tonk for an evening; and Alice Wetterlund, originally of Minnesota and now making her home out in California, joins us for a bit of comedy. Plus: the third Song of the Week this season from host Chris Thile; Tom Papa is back with an update from Out in America; music from public radio's finest variety show ensemble (singer Madison Cunningham, pianist and music director Rich Dworsky, drummer Matt Chamberlain, guitarist Chris Eldridge, Brittany Haas on fiddle, and bassist Paul Kowert); leaves crunching, overhead geese, apple-cheeked conversation, and more autumn hallmarks from our Royal Academy of Radio Actors (Serena Brook, Tim Russell, and Fred Newman); a fresh selection of musician birthdays; and a song request straight from you, the listeners. It's almost more entertainment than can comfortably fit into two hours, but we'll do our very best.
