Public radio station Michigan Radio (91.7 FM) and Olympia Entertainment will welcome America's favorite storyteller, Garrison Keillor, to the Fox Theatre on Saturday, May 30 at 5:45 p.m. for a special live broadcast performance of A Prairie Home Companion.

The May 30 show will feature live performances and comedy skits by Keillor and the Prairie Home cast. Keillor will weave local humor into the show and share his signature monologue, "The News from Lake Wobegon," with Detroit audiences.

A native Minnesotan, Garrison Keillor began working at Minnesota Public Radio in 1969. In the summer of 1974, he hosted the first live broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion, a program now heard weekly on over 580 public radio stations by over 4 million listeners. The celebrated radio variety show regularly airs Saturdays at 6 p.m. on Michigan Radio (91.7 FM Ann Arbor/Detroit, 104.1 FM West Michigan and 91.7 FM Flint), and is repeated at 12 p.m. on Sundays. Keillor is also the author of 13 books and winner of numerous awards for his broadcasting and literary work.

Keillor has received numerous awards for his broadcast and literary work, including: membership in the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters (2001); The National Humanities Medal (1999); and a Grammy Award for the recording of Lake Wobegon Days (1985). He is the host of the daily program The Writer’s Almanac and the editor of several anthologies of poetry, most recently, Good Poems: American Places.

A Prairie Home Companion is produced by Prairie Home Productions, and is presented and distributed by American Public Media. The program is sponsored nationally by Ford and Holiday Vacations.
