A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION 10th ANNIVERSARY

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Garrison Keillor

Contemporary Culture • 1.75 hrs. • Audio Program • © 1984

Keillor visits his "hometown" of Lake Wobegon, where "the women are strong, the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average." He mixes homespun philosophy with humorous bits such as "Shows That Are No Longer With Us"--like "Lutheran Whispers," the side-splitting "Parade of Products "(Mr. Pickle, Bertha's Kitty Boutique), and the bouncy, toe-tapping sounds of the Night o' Rest Motel Chorus and Orchestra playing such "classics" as "Don't Pass Your Kisses Around." It's all perfectly paced, impeccably put together, and as cozy, warm, and comfortable as an old pair of slippers. A true collector's item. M.T.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
