Review:

"This unique collection of skits, songs and 'News from Lake Wobegon' monologues from the radio show A Prairie Home Companion is gleaned from over 30 years of the popular program. Longtime fans will hear some of their favorites, including 'The Lives of the Cowboys: Big Messer' and 'Ruth Harrison, Reference Librarian,' plus the toe-tapping music of the Guys'All-Star Shoe Band. Newcomers to Garrison Keillor's show will find the CDs a great introduction to this quirky Saturday night broadcast heard around the world on public and satellite radio. Other highlights include 'Bertha's Kitty Boutique,' 'The Ten Minute Macbeth' and 'Guy Noir's Movie Shoot.' The understated humor and occasional wackiness serves as both an excellent introduction for new listeners and a selective greatest hits for steadfast fans. This is a collection well worth hearing again and again." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
