a story of Southern agriculture

A Prairie Home Companion: Farmers, Stickers that sell and joking about Minnesota

I enjoy the radio program “A Prairie Home Companion”.  They’re in the South for a few weeks, so I thought I’d pull a few things from their YouTube channel for us to enjoy.

On the APHC site, Garrison Keillor, the show host, recalls

 “When the show started, it was something funny to do with my friends, and then it became an achievement that I hoped would be successful, and now it’s a good way of life.”


It’s a good way of life for me, too.  Radio programs take me back to a different time.  APHC is a favorite because…

…well, I have an inner Garrison Keillor that loves making up songs and laughing.  About 4 million people every week get their inner GK & company fix, so there’s no shame.  Just listen along! 

We’re glad to have you down South for a few weeks, Mr. Keillor!



P.S. My apologies to my Minnesota friends. 🙂

    You can’t beat Garrison or Guy! He makes some good points about the disconnect between those who raise food animals and the perceptions of some consumers without being overbearing.
