Wouldn’t You Like Some Rhubarb Pie?

Today’s post is brought to you by my dearest sister, who upon discovering that I have not, in fact, reviewed A Prairie Home Companion, decided to make sure that I would do so by repeatedly reminding me to.

A Prairie Home Companion is a radio show that broadcasts live from various auditoriums all over the world. It combines excellent cheery bluegrass-style country music with hilariously silly comedy sketches and the occasional interview with country music artists.

While I do actually enjoy the country music played on the show, it’s the comedy bits in between the music that really bring the show to the next level. Usually, Garrison just talks about some really ridiculous subject or another while the sound guy runs around in the background trying to keep up with sound effects.

Which brings me to my next point – the sound effects man. He is my sister’s hero. The sound effects man can do ANYTHING. He can make insect snores. Insect snores! That’s got to be a sound effect that is really hard to get. Plus, he makes a pretty good impression of a British man being thrown into a lake.

According to the official website, show host Garrison Keillor started the show on July 6, 1974 in a creaky auditorium in a little college somewhere. It’s since grown to have 4 million listeners world wide. The show is so popular, that it is sponsored by a number of great American companies, including Powdermilk Biscuits, Bebopareebop Rhubarb Pie and Pie Filling, The Bon Marche Beauty Salon and the American Duct Tape Council.

So go check out A Prairie Home Companion at their website http://prairiehome.publicradio.org/. While you’re at it, why don’t you have a slice of some nice, delicious Bebopareebob Rhubarb Pie?

(Incidentally, this post has been sponsored by Bebopareebob Rhubarb Pie and Rhubarb Pie Filling, nothing gets the taste of humiliation out of your mouth like Bebopareebob Rhubarb Pie.)
