Prairie Home Companion Turns 40

by Tony Shea on July 7, 2014


Prairie Home Companion, the beloved radio show, turned 40 over the weekend. Hosted by Garrison Keillor, the show has always been a homespun slice of American life, with its perennial cast of characters including Guy Noir Private Eye, Dusty and Lefty, as well as news from the fictional town of Lake Wobegon. To commemorate the 40th anniversary, Keillor wrote a sonnet to sum it all up.
