Some Super Bowl counter programming: A Prairie Home Companion with guest New Orleans musicians

I was listening last night and heard two musicians from the Big Easy (also coincidentally the home of this year's Super Bowl football championship) : Topsy Chapman; Butch Thompson and His New Orleans Orphans. Video highlights and full audio here. At the beginning of the show Garrison Keillor announced the show would have a New Orleans music celebratory theme but I don't remember if GK or anyone mentioned the Super Bowl that'd be the night after (PHC is performed live at St. Paul, Minn. Saturday nights 5pm-7pm CT and carried live on Minnesota Public Radio & most East Coast NPR stations).

From the PHC site here's where to find the New Orleans music in the full audio mp3 file:

00:13:32 GK intros Topsy Chapman
00:15:22 Do You Know What it Means to Miss New Orleans- Topsy Chapman and band
00:31:06 PSA script
00:34:12 GK talks with Topsy Chapman
00:35:27 Them There Eyes- Topsy Chapman and band
00:39:22 GK talks to Topsy about singing at New Orleans funerals
00:39:49 Just A Little While to Stay Here- Topsy Chapman and band
01:19:50 Country Boy Down in New Orleans- Pat Donohue and Shoes
01:23:10 GK talks about tonight's masked ball
01:23:52 Guy Noir script
01:32:03 GK talks about New Orleans funerals
01:32:36 Funeral Sequence- Butch Thompson and his New Orleans Orphans with Shoes
01:37:01 Abbey script
01:42:04 His Eye is On the Sparrow- Topsy Chapman and band
01:47:22 Wild Man Blues- Duke Heitger and Butch Thompson
01:51:30 Plumbing script
01:53:12 If Ever I Cease to Love- Charlie DeVore and band, credits, Just A Little While to Stay Here

If you'd like to listen to the show on the radio or streaming DURING the Super Bowl, Tunein.com lists these stations as carrying the show Sundays from the 6 to 10pm ET hours when the game occurs (I checked station websites to verify as tunein can get out dated quickly)

6pm-8pm (ET): WVIK (Rock Island, IL); WHRV-HD2 "SpeakEasy" (Norfolk, VA); WMKY Morehead State Public Radio (Morehead, KY...and Morehead State is alma mater of two-time Super Bowl champ/NY Giants QB now NFL on CBS broadcaster Phil Simms!)
7pm-9pm (ET): WFIU-HD2 Public Radio from Indiana University (Bloomington); WLRN-HD2 "Xtra HD" (Miami, FL)
8pm-10pm (ET): WHYY (Philadelphia, PA); WVIA (Scranton, PA)
