Garrison Keillor ends his Prairie Home Companion show after 42 years. I was not always a fan, even though I knew those people he spoke of. I am from the Midwest and could put a name to each of those delightful people who he spoke so eloquently about.
This show grew on me as a long time friendship does. Now we had history together even if he never knew me as a member of his audience. I liked some segments more than other, but behind everything was his dry humor about his fictional town and its inhabitants and they drew me in.
As a lifelong listener to Public Radio, I look forward to his next endeavor. Goodbye and good luck in all aspects of your future.
