'Prairie Home Companion' returning to Duluth this fall
Public radio’s most Minnesota-centric program will return to Duluth as part of its 40th anniversary celebration.
The show featuring Garrison Keillor started celebrating the milestone this past July with a three-day anniversary celebration at Macalester College — where it first aired live in 1974; the first show attracted about 12 people to the audience. These days it plays for thousands in addition to airing on 600 radio stations around the country, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
“A Prairie Home Companion” played at Symphony Hall in 2012 and featured Trampled By Turtles as its musical guest. There is no word yet on the November show’s lineup.
