Old Sweet Songs [Audio]

On July 6, 1974, about a dozen people made their way to the Janet Wallace Auditorium at Macalester College in St. Paul for the first broadcast of a new radio show. Things went pretty well, so Garrison Keillor and his team produced another show, then another . . . close to 500 in the first 10 years alone. Today "A Prairie Home Companion" is heard by more than 4 million listeners each week on 590 public radio stations. This new collection looks back at the early days, when guests included people like Bill Hinkley and Judy Larson, pianist Butch Thompson, mandolin maestro Peter Ostroushko, Dakota Dave Hull, and the first Powdermilk Biscuit Band: Adam Granger, Bob Douglas, and Mary DuShane. Ads from "sponsors" sing the praises of Bertha's Kitty Boutique, Jack's Deep Valley Beds, and, of course, Powdermilk Biscuits. Bits and sketches are sweet nostalgia; monologues revisit Lake Wobegon as it was years ago. A treat for longtime fans, this collection will also delight newcomers who want to know what all the fuss is about.
