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.

16Featuring Bonnie Raitt singing duets with Keb’ Mo’, Randy 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.

We are rocked to the core to hear of the passing of our dear friend, bandmate and musical genius, Mike Finnigan. He fought his long illness with the same fearlessness and ferocity he brought to every part of his life. Our deepest condolences go out to Candy, Kelly, Bridget and all his family.

Mike was one of the most powerful, virtuosic soul/gospel/blues singers and Hammond B3 players you’ll ever be blessed to hear. Respected and emulated by musicians the world over, his legacy of staggering
performances across his 60+ years career will stand the test of time. He stopped our show nearly every night. There was simply no one like him.

He was whipsmart, incredibly articulate and funny as hell. He was as devoted to his beloved family and friends as he was to helping so many struggling to get and stay sober. He and his wife Candy were instrumental in my own sobriety and I will be forever grateful.

Rest in peace, dear Mike. I know you’ll be shaking that Heavenly Choir to new heights as only you can do.

Here’s a clip from our 2013 Slipstream tour, where he tore up the place every night with Ray Charles’ iconic “I’ve Got News for You.”
