Listeners will find Lutheran jokes aplenty in this collection of songs, sketches, and stories, all dealing with religion, from "A Prairie Home Companion." Songs like "I'm a Lutheran" and "Lutheran Polka" are the most offbeat treats. "Church Directory," about a photo project that goes horribly wrong, is the funniest of Garrison Keillor's four "News from Lake Wobegon" monologues included. There's also a Guy Noir sketch, with Keillor's barely hard-boiled detective tracking down a New Year's Eve party video. Anyone who has ever considered what Minnesota Lutherans do for fun and recreation—and that includes most of Keillor's listeners—will enjoy this themed assortment of tidbits from his long-running radio show.
