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."

La Vida Boheme plays upbeat music on somber themes. The Venezuelan rockers' last album, Será, came as student protests were erupting in their home town of Caracas. The band's booking agent was murdered; their tour manager was kidnapped. The four members of the group locked themselves inside their apartments. They would later describe the record, which won a Latin Grammy, as "the soundtrack to an apocalypse."

Two separate high-profile incidents broadcast this week highlighted the criticism black women regularly face in the workplace and spurred many to share their own experiences on social media.

When President Trump signed an order to roll back climate policies, he promised more jobs for coal miners.

"My administration is putting an end to the war on coal. Gonna have clean coal, really clean coal," Trump said in making the announcement at the Environmental Protection Agency headquarters Tuesday.
