June 7, 2008

This week on A Prairie Home Companion, it’s a garden fresh hot dish of shows from the Greek Theater, in Los Angeles.

We’ll march our phalanx of pen-wielding English majors into the Greek Theater in Los Angeles, bringing Minnesotan cultural exchange to the coastal peoples of the Pacific. With special guests, blue-eyed soul sister Bonnie Raitt, actor and ‘flower in the gun barrel’ Martin Sheen, and gospel-singer Jearlyn Steele. Also with us, The Royal Academy of Radio Actors: Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman, The Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band with Rich Dworsky, and The News from Lake Wobegon. Join us this weekend, on your local Public Radio station.


Featuring Bonnie Raitt singing duets with Keb’ Mo’, Fred Newman singing a song for his beloved New Orleans, and Martin Sheen taking on multiple dramatic roles: a crotchety Irishman, a slippery movie producer, and a difficult tour bus operator. Paula Poundstone and Erica Rhodes also sit in with the Royal Academy of Radio Actors, and in Lake Wobegon — the story of Herman the Human Lightning Rod, survivor of seven atmospheric discharges.

Congratulations to Blues Hall of Famer Bonnie Raitt who was honored at last night's GRAMMYs with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

“To be validated by my peers… it’s a very big celebration and I’m very grateful.” On being an inspiration and influence to other musicians, like Sheryl Crow who was inspired to play guitar after hearing Raitt play for the first time, she says “it’s hard for me to imagine because I still feel like I’m just starting out. It’s been 50 years, but you know people have been really kind. So many more women are playing lead guitar - Prince’s band, Beyonce’s band, all the late-night bands who have women musicians. It’s fantastic.”
