Two different updates on Garrison Keillor
Well, his sense of humor is certainly intact. He described his stroke symptoms at the time as something like a combination of four martinis and a visit to the dentist's office. He also said he's gotten a lot of advice from friends to call it a day, retire, but says he's not ready to do that. "Work is what I do," he said.
That being said...another article in the Minneapolis-St Paul Star Tribune indicated that he might only do the show for a couple more years. He said he'd like to see the show continue as more of an acoustic-music showcase, with him as producer. What? No more "News from Lake Wobegon?" No more "Adventures of Guy Noir," and "The Life of the Cowboys?" Unthinkable.
The new season kicks off Saturday, September 26 at 6 PM live from the Fitzgerald Theater, and of course you can hear it right here on WSCL 89.5 FM and WSDL 90.7 FM, with a repeat Sunday at noon on WSDL 90.7 FM.
