About Garrison Keillor
Would you like some Powdermilk Biscuits? How about a slice of rhubarb pie? Or perhaps you'd prefer witty comedic sketches, heartfelt Gospel and folk music, and some of the most delightful monologues to be heard on radio? If any of that's to your liking, then you're most certainly hungering for a bit of Garrison Keillor, the most popular and beloved radio personality today. His show A Prairie Home Companion is syndicated nationally from St. Paul, Minn. Its mixture of comedy, traditional American music, sentimentality and wisdom brings sanity and serenity to many a household. A long-standing favorite from the show is "The News from Lake Wobegon," in which Keillor lovingly tells stories about the lives and times of the folks who reside in his Our Town-esque community. With his sweet, deep voice (which alone can mesmerize even the most hard-hearted listener), he deliberately spins richly emotional and highly inventive yarns that always contain astute observations concerning the human heart and condition. This sharp insight, coupled with Keillor's distinctive brand of understated humor, makes for an engaging and entertaining listening experience.
