A Prairie Home Companion Garrison Keillor
show originally started as a morning radio show, "A Prairie Home Entertainment,"
in 1969. It was aired from Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) and lasted three hours from six to nine. Keillor targeted the office going traffic, and made a significant impact by assembling an eclectic selection of music. However, he resigned from the show in early 1971 when he thought that there was interference in his style of presenting the show and his selection of diverse music instead of the regular classical music. Fortunately, the show had become so popular by then that eventually, the management had to recall Keillor. In October of the same year, the show came on air with a new name: A Prairie Home Companion. Keillor did some brainstorming to make the show more unique and arrived at the idea of asking local musicians to come and perform live on the show. A Prairie Home Companion Garrison Keillor
was performed live for an audience for the first time on July 6, 1974, which was a Saturday night. It was truly an enthralling experience for the live audience as dexterously using satire, wit, and tongue in cheek humor, Keillor induced his audience into peals of laughter. Fictional ads zealously promoting the beneficial effects of make-believe products and services such as Jack's Auto Repair and Powdermilk Biscuits made the audience laugh until they got a stitch in their sides. The show was perfectly balanced with comic skits, music acts, and last but not the least; brilliant sound effects. And the highlight of the show was the great man himself telling "The News from Lake Wobegon"
in his uniquely lazy voice that was just perfect for story telling. This segment became a much loved part of the show with Keillor informing the viewers about the significant news from the fictional town of Minnesota, Lake Wobegon, where everything is ideal: children are all exceptional, men are very good looking, and women are confident and strong.
