Garrison Keillor Brings Lake Wobegon To San Diego

Aired 6/4/13 on KPBS Midday Edition.

GUEST: Garrison Keillor, Host of A Prairie Home Companion

Transcript

Sunny, surfing, laid-back San Diego wouldn't seem to have much in common with a chilly, straight-laced prairie town like Lake Wobegon. But look beneath the surface... you'll find San Diegans who wouldn't miss a weekly update from that legendary Minnesota town. Every once in a while, A Prairie Home Companion goes on the road and in July it makes a stop in San Diego. Garrison Keillor talks about his long-time radio show, heard weekly on KPBS.

Call me a jerk but I can't stand this guy. I used to think he was charming and funny, but now he just seems crass and immature. It's a tired act.
