Salt Lake City

A Prairie Home Companion started production in 1974. Live every Saturday night from 5-7 p.m., A Prairie Home Companion featured comedy sketches, music, and Garrison Keillor's signature monologue, "The News from Lake Wobegon." Today, some 4 million listeners on more than 600 public radio stations coast-to-coast and beyond tune in to the show each week. Keillor has been honored with Grammy, ACE, and George Foster Peabody Awards, the National Humanities Medal, and election to the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
A Prairie Home Companion's Radio Romance Tour 2013 hits the road coast-to-coast this summer, starring host and writer Garrison Keillor, singer Aoife O’Donovan, comedian Fred Newman, Rich Dworsky and The Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band with guitarist Pat Donohue and violinist/mandolinist Richard Kriehn, two hours of duet singing, absurd improv with sound effects, Guy Noir Private Eye, poetry, outright foolishness, and the News from Lake Wobegon.
