A Prairie Home Companion at Hollywood Bowl

Kevin and I spent a fabulous Friday evening at the Hollywood Bowl. A few glasses of perfectly chilled white wine under a blissful summer night … this is definitely my definition of a fun Friday night, especially after a busy work week.

Ever since I discovered NPR a few years ago, it became the only radio station that I listen to. I’m in love with all the quality programs on KPCC 89.3 FM, but there are no shows I like more than a weekly variety show, A Prairie Home Companion. I’ve wanted to watch it live for a while now, and I jumped at the opportunity when the show came to Hollywood Bowl last weekend.

Actor Martin Sheen was a guest star, along with an amazing opera singer Ellie Dehn, a bluegrass artist Sara Watkins, and singing sisters Jearlyn and Jevetta Sttele … and they were all amazing. And Garrison Keillor was as splendid as I expected.

A side note:  We took a shuttle from the Universal City metro area to Hollywood Bowl ($5, what a deal).  In the bus, there was a kind man who passed out gardenia he picked from his garden to the ladies.  The scent of the flower was so sweet and melodious, I became an instant fan of this lovely white tropical plant.

I love summer in Los Angeles.
