AllMusic Review by

Radio Songs collects 19 performances from harmonious husband and wife folk legends Robin & Linda Williams, all of which are culled from the riches of Garrison Keillor's popular NPR radio program A Prairie Home Companion. The duo first appeared on the show in 1975, and while the selections that populate Red House's Radio Songs compilation may only reach as far back as 1993 ("Other Side of Town" with the Hopeful Gospel Quartet), the timelessness of both the music and the show itself keeps everything awash in the same sepia-tone glow. Fans who are already familiar with the duo's impressive repertoire will love having a copy of the live versions of longtime favorites, but many of the tunes on Radio Songs were performed only once, making this essential listening for devotees of both APHC and Robin & Linda Williams.
