Add this recording of skits and songs to your collection of prized recordings from "A Prairie Home Companion." Keillor's infectious humor and good writing, and a talented cast, make a program old and young can enjoy. A particular treat in this set is a "bonus" tape from one of Keillor's Joke Shows. Lamenting that "they don't tell jokes the way they used to," Keillor supplies listeners with a repertoire to learn and retell. Audio programs may have a new calling--it's so much easier to learn a joke by listening a couple times than by reading it! Roy Blount, Jr., and Paula Poundstone join Keillor in the tellings, and while they don't all come off, the zingers are there to be loved and retold.
