    This collection contains scores and parts from the 1989-1993 period during which radio host Garrison Keillor took a hiatus from the weekly variety show A Prairie Home Companion and started a new radio show called American Radio Company. The program featured sketches and live musical performances similar to those of A Prairie Home Companion, but with a New York cultural focus (it was broadcast from the Brooklyn Academy of Music rather than from the Fitzgerald Theater in Minneapolis) and greater musical diversity. The house band for this period was "The Coffee Club Orchestra" led by music director Rob Fisher, with much of the music arranged by composer and music director Russell Warner.
