Garrison Keillor, With, read by the author and idge Audio $ (0p) ISBN Just when you thought it couldn't get any funnier This edition of the Pretty Good Joke Book includes all the puns, one-liners, knock-knocks, and knee-slappers of its predecessors, plus dozens more. Includes every joke (yes, even the groaners) from all of the almost-annual .

That’s because millions listened each week to Keillor’s heartwarming stories and songs on “A Prairie Home Companion,” the acclaimed radio show he created and hosted for over 40 years. Many still feel close to the characters from his iconic, short stories of fictional town Lake Wobegon. A Prairie Home Companion Folk Song Book: More Than Fresh, Funny, and Irreverent American Folk Songs by Marcia Pankake, Jon Pankake and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at

Then several months prior to the book’s release, when Keillor announced his resignation from “A Prairie Home Companion,” he was simultaneously feuding with local media, making disparaging.   The film opens as “A Prairie Home Companion” prepares to broadcast for the final time. The weekend radio show, which airs on the mom-and-pop station, WLT (which stands for “with lettuce and tomato”, a throwback to the days when the show broadcast from the diner across the street), has been sold to a Texas conglomerate.
