As the host and creator of NPR's bullwark program "A Prairie Home Companion," Keillor himself says that the show got to be more fun when they realized that it was not great American literature. This CD is full of nostalgia. Garrison tells us about a school bus driver who steered with his knees while nipping out of a bottle. Guy Noir, Private Eye, is here as well as Dusty and Lefty the cowboys who are great, but my least favorite. I do love the ten-minute Macbeth, the tales from Lake Wobegon, and the great music by the Shoe Band, which is definitely a favorite of mine. You get two hours of live broadcast from this great radio show which I, for one, never miss. There’s a movie?
