Best known as the host of “The Prairie Home Companion,” a weekly public radio show, this storyteller-songwriter-performer talks about his first book of verses, “Oh, What a Luxury.” Listen in for a little singing about a lady from Nashville, tales from his first job in radio, and growing up in Minnesota.



Top authors are interviewed on this 10-minute program that captures their words about their books and ideas and often the story behind the story. The show, hosted by Diana Korte and engineered by Gene Korte, is in its 20th year of production.
