American Public Media has been begging Garrison Keillor for years not to retire from the weekend Prairie Companion show – a novelty in that it is broadcast live, usually from the theater in Saint Paul Minnesota.
He was going to retire in a few months, but he just revealed he had a brain seizure during the show two weeks ago. There is some brain damage, but he plans to keep on doing the show until the agreed on date.
A long time ago, I created a poll asking people if they know the origin of the Prairie Home Companion program name. Outhouse was a popular plausible guess. My real guess was it was a reference to the Bible. Here is a hint – if you were looking for legendary guitarist Les Paul, he can be found there.
