This week on A Prairie Home Companion, we're uncorking a live broadcast from The Milwaukee Theater. With special guests, the legendary wanderers from Waukesha; The BoDeans, and the most famous American performer ever to wear a bow tie and panama hat, Leon Redbone. Also with us, The Royal Academy of Radio Actors: Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman, The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, and The News from Lake Wobegon.
