    Randy Newman's debut performance on Austin City Limits will receive an encore broadcast when ACL, the longest-running live music television series in history, airs the 2011 episode dedicated exclusively to his work on PBS stations across the United States this weekend.

    "With songs that run the gamut from heartbreaking to satirical and a host of unforgettable film scores," says the show, "Randy Newman has used his many talents to create musical masterpieces widely recognized by generations of audiences."

    Newman's Austin City Limits debut first aired in November 2011, the same week his latest album, Live in London, was released on Nonesuch Records. The set list for this Saturday's show features 17 songs from throughout Newman's career, including favorites like "Short People," "Political Science," and "You Can Leave Your Hat On," each of which he performs on the Live in London CD+DVD as well. To pick up a copy of Live in London, head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD+DVD orders include a free download of the music at checkout.
