Destination of the Day: A Prairie Home Companion, Saint Paul, MN

Destination 3 in the series "Pledge Drive"

Across North America right around 5pm CT radios change from the local sports or classical music stations to the opening song of APHC,  "Tishomingo Blues".  What started as a simple variety show has become an American institution.  Just the RUMOR that Garrison Keillor was planning to retire from the show made it to the top of many online papers.  

APHC's summer road show season is in high gear.  Upcoming performances include: Chicago-Highland Park (26 June), Grand Rapids (12 August), Lansing-East Lansing (13 August), Louisville (14 August), and the Minnesota State Fair (2 September).
