Garrison Kiellor – Prairie Home Companion Host
Both Bonnett and I first listened to Garrison Kiellor’s morning radio while getting ready for our day of high school in Little Falls, Minnesota. It was aired starting in 1969 on Minnesota Public Radio and broadcast from St. Johns University in Collegeville, MN. In 1974 Kiellor started his live radio show, A Prairie Home Companion, which expanded his use of live music in the radio studio to a larger scale production. Like his initial morning radio show, the Saturday evening broadcasts feature an eclectic blend of music and humor.
“A good newspaper is never nearly good enough but a lousy newspaper is a joy forever.
“A lovely thing about Christmas is that it’s compulsory, like a thunderstorm, and we all go through it together.”
“Cats are intended to teach us that not everything in nature has a function.”
“A girl in a bikini is like having a loaded pistol on your coffee table – There’s nothing wrong with them, but it’s hard to stop thinking about it.”
“God writes a lot of comedy… the trouble is, he’s stuck with so many bad actors who don’t know how to play funny.
– Garrison Keillor (1942- )
