Garrison Keillor Audio & Video

Garrison Keillor is an American Author familiar to many as the host of the weekly Public Radio Show "A Pairie Home Companion". With his instantly identifiable voice, Keillor tells homespun tales set in the fictional Minnesota town of Lake Wobegon. For years this location has served as a fertile springboard for Keillor’s praise of the ordinary men and women that form the classical concept of the American Ideal. Keillor has spent most of his professional and personal life headquartered in St. Paul Minnesota. After graduating from the University of Minnesota, he began his career in student radio (notably, one of his first on-air appearances was to report news of the Kennedy Assasination), this led to what would later become APHC in the 70's, and has spread to work as a columnist and humorist.

His work is closely associated with midwestern-values including a working-class concept of the word "democrat". Always humble, erudite and reliably witty, Kiellor is one of the most famous radio personalities of all time. Since his work is primarily in the audio medium, his tales and other work are well represented in a variety of formats.

There are plenty of Prairie Home Companion audio collections to choose from. First of all one should look no further than the highly representative "A Pairie Home Companion: 25th Anniversary Collection" which will give you the very best of APHC's 25 years in broadcasting. If you are strictly interested in hear Kiellor's Lake Wobegon stories, then check out "Lake Wobegon Days", an audio version of his hand selected tales. Interested in other stories by Keillor? Then "Stories" is a great way to hear the author read some of his favorites, which include selections from his New Yorker articles, and best selling books such as Happy to Be Here. Whether you are looking for tales from Lake Wobegon or wish to relax with Keillor's unique take on the world, LearnOutLoud is excited to help you on your way.
