A Prairie Home Companion

Saturdays, 5-7 PM

A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor®

Hosted by Garrison Keillor, A Prairie Home Companion is the #1 public radio entertainment show in the country.  Airing from the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, Minnesota, and other raucous spots across the country, it’s known for its musical guests, especially folk and traditional musicians, as well as Keillor's comedic storytelling segment, "News from Lake Wobegon."

Merely Torres-Garcia has been living in a hotel room in Hartford, Conn., with her husband and two kids after losing part of her house in Puerto Rico to Hurricane Maria. She said spending the Christmas season in the northeastern cold has been hard for her family. But on Saturday night, in the noisy atrium of Hartford City Hall, it felt a little bit like Christmas on the island.

"My kids are happy. We feel like home in here right now," she said.

Let's take a moment to remember the Chicago Jazz pianist Willie Pickens, who died last week at age 86.
