I am a student living here in Germany, listening to A Prairie Home Companion, but for weeks now you are rebroadcasting past shows with no sign on the horizon of an upcoming new show. Forgive me for being so rude as to ask what has happened? When do we hear new things?
Said Yama Ahamdi
My esteemed Said,
This very Saturday will come a brand new show, with the Derailers, a terrific rockabilly band from Texas, and the excellent Jearlyn Steele and all the rest of our troupe. We will not test your knowledge of German, we will not talk about Iraq, we will not assign term paper topics, just the usual fizzy warm-hearted entertainment and goofiness, though Jearlyn and I will do a duet of that glorious Albert Brumley gospel song, "I Will Meet You In The Morning." I reckon the show starts around midnight in Germany. We'll be thinking of you.
