Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion revitalized radio in 1974 with the intimate and eclectic public radio program, A Prairie Home Companion. The weekly broadcasts showcase Keillor’s gift as a writer, storyteller, producer, and performer, and are listened to by over four million Americans. With rich and meandering reports of the life and times of the fictitious Midwestern town, Lake Wobegon, A Prairie Home Companion features comedy sketches, music, and Keillor’s signature monologue. The program is heard by 4 million listeners each week on more than 600 public radio stations, and abroad on America One and the Armed Forces Networks in Europe and the Far East.
