Publisher's Summary

"It's been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon, my hometown..." Garrison Keillor first did his monologue in 1974 to an audience of 20 in a St. Paul theater. Today, more than 2.2 million people tune in each week to hear the tall tales and sweet stories about the citizens of this small Minnesota town. It's a town where "the women are strong, the men are good-looking, and all of the children are above average." Keillor's monologues capture the nuances of country life and of growing up American with eloquence and subtle humor.

      "downcut?"

      In the middle of the story, the podcast ends. There no familiar "well, that's the news from..." close. At the end of a sentence in the midst of the tale, along comes "Audible hopes you've enjoyed this program." Wha happened?
