A Prairie Home Companion
A Prairie Home Companion is a recorded live show featuring comedy sketches, music and more from host Garrison Keillor and company.
"We're all used to disappointment and heartbreak in Lake Wobegon. We're all used to being left behind, of course, it's the story of our lives." Clint Bunsen tries to help a skunk out of a live trap, the host recalls an autumn morning that changed him forever, and Eloise Krebsbach sends her boyfriend to chemical dependency treatment, in a monologue from October 2009.
"This was the week when the weather turned, just came all of a sudden. This last week, the wind shifted around from the North and you could feel that the temperature dropped about 20 degrees." In a monologue from October 2004, the host wades into frigid water to help Uncle Dean and Aunt Evelyn retrieve the dock, and considers Kafka while visiting Prague. Cousin Larry visits relatives in Norway.
"It's been cold and windy there and on the verge of turning warm and sunny, and just when you think it will, we get a little bit of snow, typical for Minnesota at this time of the year." Regulars visit the Chatterbox Cafe to complain about their lives and Carl Krebsbach reminisces about an early relationship with Anne Marie Meister, a monologue from April 1995.
