Garrison Keillor: The Man on the Radio in the Red Shoes

Since 1974 humorist Garrison Keillor has been producing his weekly radio program "A Prairie Home Companion" in which he weaves folksy stories of his fictional hometown of Lake Wobegon with bluegrass/country styled music. "The Man on the Radio in the Red Shoes" is a documentary that is as irreverent and down-to-earth as the man and his radio program. As we listen to his wonderfully descriptive monologues, watch humorous old time radio skits, and listen to unpretentious, cozy music it brings us back to a simpler time of our youths and is evident as to why Keillor's program and style of humor has been so long standing.
