Prairie Home Companion for January 13, 2018
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
[Program Website]

A beloved variety show with homespun stories, skits, music, poetry, special guests and the news from Lake Wobegon.

Garrison Keillor began A Prairie Home Companion on Minnesota Public Radio in 1969. The show has been in production ever since (except for the couple of years in the late eighties when he moved to Denmark.) Keillor remembers, "When the show started, it was something funny to do with my friends, and then it became an achievement that I hoped would be successful, and now it's a good way of life."

Today, A Prairie Home Companion is heard by approximately 3.9 million U.S. listeners each week on over 511 public radio stations, and is heard abroad on America One and the Armed Forces Networks In Europe and the Far East.

Each week you can hear excellent musicians, and favorite characters like the Ketchup Couple, Guy Noir - Private Eye, and of course Garrison’s signature News from Lake Wobegon. There are also pretty good jokes like this one: A man walks into the doctor's office. He has a banana in one nostril and a carrot in the other. He has a piece of celery in his right ear and a potato stuck in his left ear. He says "Doctor, I feel terrible." The doctor says "Well, your problem is obvious. You're not eating right."
