A Prairie Home Companion is a live radio variety show hosted by Garrison Keillor featuring comedy sketches, music, and Keillor's signature monologue, "The News from Lake Wobegon."

The host finds his own book at the Hedlunds' garage sale, Lake Wobegon High School valedictorian Louise Larson celebrates graduation, the Halvorson-Josephson wedding is called off, and a few thoughts on Father's Day.
"It's been chilly, been cloudy this whole week but we're used to it. It doesn't really matter." Lake Wobegon High School's class of 2013 graduates, tales of graduation ceremony pranks from years past, and thoughts on being a commencement speaker.
"It was cloudy and chilly here this last weekend--Memorial Day weekend, which was a sore disappointment to people..." Myrtle and Florian Krebsbach take a trip to Iowa, Amy Tollerud graduates high school and prepares to leave for college, and Clarence Bunsen has an automotive encounter with a June bug.
"It's been rainy out there It's been raining most of the week and so everything is blossoming and blooming. Everything is green." Father Wilmer hosts a picnic at Our Lady of Perpetual Responsibility, the Lake Wobegon Whippets open their season, and the story of Wally "Old Hard Hands" Bunsen.
"It's a gorgeous, gorgeous fall here. Gorgeous nights--warm days, cool nights." Pastor Liz hosts a bonfire and Mr. Lofgren's orchard produces an exceptional harvest of his "Julia" apples, in a monologue from September 2012.
