In this post from the other day, I mentioned the weekly News from Lake Wobegone segment in last weekend’s Prairie Home Companion (PHC) radio show with Garrison Keillor (GK). For the uninitiated, PHC is a weekly, old-style, radio variety show. GK does a weekly monologue with homespun stories in the vein of someone catching others up on the local happenings in their hometown from the past week.
This week, he contended that children are the great traditionalists and conservatives as far as Christmas is concerned. Give it a listen here. Scroll down and click on “Segment 4” for the News from Lake Wobegone. And consider checking out the various segments with music from Jerry Douglas and his band too–great stuff.
