    In 1981 and ’82, the cast and crew of A Prairie Home Companion toured and performed all over the United States, from Boston to Ashland, Oregon, from Los Angeles to Lansing, Michigan. This recording is a scrapbook of those live shows – music and laughter from a long-ago journey.

    This 45 minute disc is classic Garrison Keillor, complete with musical performances by the Butch Thompson Trio, Robin and Linda Williams and the Bon Temps Zydeco Band. Also hear the first-ever recitation of Garrison Keillor’s poem, “Ode to Oregon.”

    About the Author:

    Garrison Keillor is America’s favorite storyteller. For more than 30 years as the host of A Prairie Home Companion, he has captivated millions of public radio listeners with his weekly News from Lake Wobegon monologues. Keillor is also the author of several books and a frequent contributor to national publications including Time, The New Yorker, and National Geographic, in addition to writing his own syndicated column. He has been awarded a National Humanities Medal from the National Endowment of the Humanities. When not touring, he resides in St. Paul, Minnesota.
