a prairie home companion

November 1, 2006

I’m not old enough to truly old enough to enjoy the golden days of radio, or even the slightly patina-ed days of radio, when the dust collected on top is higher than the number of listeners. However, I am old enough to know a little show from St. Paul, MN, called A Praire Home Companion.

For the simple at heart. For the quiet of mind. For those that love life. For those that love music. For those that love to laugh. I stumbled across this show when I was in high school, and used to listen to it fairly religiously. Ripe with old time religion and the delicate charm of the Northern folk, this show has been able to stir my heart in the best ways. The host, Garrison Keillor, is a wonderful writer, and his placated stare could never be more real to every emotion he tells us.

Give it a listen, even if it’s just for the commercials from people such as The Ketchup Advisory Board, Xanax Salad Sprinkles, or The Council for English Majors. I highly recommend it. Especially if you like things.
