@Dudley Bowring,
He said, "I like talking to myself, and the microphone gives it a kind of dignity."

@Dudley Bowring,
I like him too. He writes for Salon sometimes, or used to. I listen to him on NPR often.

He is a national treasure.

We can get his Prairie Companion radio shows over here, and I love his Lake Woebegon books.

@McTag,
His voice is comforting to me...We listen to him all the time.

@Dudley Bowring,
I like him too, but don't hear him very often. When I used to, sometimes I'd need to pull over the car and stop and listen.

He does have a very soothing voice -- like molasses, or something. Sometimes he says stuff on his radio show that makes me laugh out loud.

@FreeDuck,
Yes, but I can rarely remember what was so funny.

@Dudley Bowring,
I grew up in Minneapolis (70's-80's).

@Dudley Bowring,
his books are always enjoyable - no matter how many times i've read them - one of his books often sits on the nighttable .
he doesn't go for belly laughs but makes me smile and nod my head .

@Dudley Bowring,
I used to quite like listening him on the radio. Can't pick him up here in Toronto. Now I find I can't tolerate his voice.

However, I've discovered that I like his writing. Wobegon Boy is my current beach reading. I've been laughing out loud quite a bit when he gets into the 'growing up Lutheran' parts. It makes me think of home.

I used to listen to Prairie Home Companion, too. Never quite unerstood if it was real or not.

I don't hear him on radio these days.

@margo,
I've read some short pieces in the NYer by him, but, being me, I forget what. (I tend to remember some of Calvin Trillin's pieces better.. expecially the one on tripe.)

I always feel comforted and reassured when I listen to Garrison Keillor.

@Sglass,
We catch him on Saturdays sometimes...My FIL has many of his tapes - so when we travel we listen to them...the boys even like them...
