Prairie Home Companion on Ice!
class=img_thumbleft>Okay, not exactly on ice, more like near ice. The cast and crew of Minnesota Public Radio's popular program will set sail Friday, July 14, from Seattle on Prairie Home Cruise II, a week-long journey to Alaska with stops in Juneau, Glacier Bay, and Ketchikan, among others. An announcement from host Garrison Keillor on the PHC website entices would-be travellers with "all the things that people said they enjoyed about Cruise I--the group singing, the plethora of intimate musical performances, the workshops, the naturalists, the star-gazing, the late-night carousing in the Crow's Nest, the Amateur Night..." Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, the Royal Academy of Radio Actors, and Robin and Linda Williams are confirmed, with other entertainers to be announced. No word on whether Guy Noir will coordinate the shuffleboard tournament. Any particular radio show you'd go cruising for?
