Overview

Commercial Radio by Garrison Keillor


A word or thirty from the sponsors of public radio’s enduring Saturday-evening staple, Commercial Radio features the best bits (and questionable marketing strategies) of many Lake Wobegon establishments. In addition to missives from longtime supporters such as the Catchup Advisory Board and the American Duct Tape Council, special messages from the Minnesota Diminishment Clinic, the Professional Association of English Majors, and many others peddle unique wares and unexpected services. Combining catchy slogans, memorable jingles, sometimes-seamless segues to product promotions, and the spirited aural antics of Tom Keith, this first-ever collection of sponsor ads is a true treat for aficionados of A Prairie Home Companion, which attracts more than three million listeners every week. All tracks are recorded from live broadcasts.
