A Prairie Home Companion

  • Hosted by Garrison Keillor

The only live music and variety show aired nationwide today, A Prairie Home Companion features comedy sketches, music, and Garrison Keillor.

The end of an era is just around the corner. For over three decades A Prairie Home Companion, hosted by Garrison Keillor, has been a fixture on KUNC. Now Garrison is retiring, with his last broadcast taking place from the Hollywood Bowl July 2, 2016.

If you're a regular public radio listener, you may hear Garrison Keillor every morning reading other people's poems on The Writer's Almanac. Now, the Prairie Home Companion host has decided to share some of his own poems for a change.

In an age of brevity, Garrison Keillor is a man who isn’t afraid to deploy a comma (or 21) to construct a point.
