Can you believe that's Garrison Keillor 40 years ago?

This July 4th weekend A Prairie Home Companion observes its 40th anniversary with a three-day celebration a stone's throw from the hall where its first live broadcast took place on July 6, 1974, on the campus of Macalester College.

A stellar assortment of guests will join Garrison Keillor, Rich Dworsky and The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, plus the acting company of Fred Newman, Tim Russell, and Sue Scott, for a special three-hour national broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion out under the trees.
