Program

In 1974, Garrison Keillor hosted the first broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion in St. Paul. The show ended in 1987, resumed in 1989 in New York as The American Radio Company, returned to Minnesota, and in 1993 resumed the name A Prairie Home Companion. Over 3 million listeners on more than 450 public radio stations now hear the show each week. In 1994, he was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame at Chicago's Museum of Broadcast Communications.  This one-of-a-kind performance by Garrison Keillor will also feature some of the finest musicians of our region, performing works that reflect its character and cultural traditions.
