    I heard a promo for today's A Prairie Home Companion's show that said Alison Balsom was was going to be on the show today. Usually comes on at 6pm. Hope I heard correctly.:-)

    Heard her playing and interview. Played some jazz flavored pieces with a cello and piano and the Artunian in the middle segment. Great playing by all and she evidently was a hit with the crowd.:-)

    For anyone else who, like me, missed the original broadcast, you might be interested in knowing that the show archive files are now available on The Prairie Home Companion web site.

    Just an FYI, Alison will be appearing in Milwaukee with the MSO on March 28th and 29th. I am hoping to get to see her.
