A Prairie Home Companion in Eugene

A Prairie Home Companion came to the Cuthbert Amphitheater in Eugene this weekend (Saturday June 6th). If you don’t know what PHC is, it’s an old time radio show hosted by Garrison Keillor. The show features funny segments like The News From Lake Wobegon (Keillor’s fictional home town), stories of Guy Noir (private detective), other great stories, live music, and guests. This weekend’s show featured guest musicians Elvin Bishop and Sam Bush, along with the Portland Cello Project. It was a great show with clear 82° weather; we got a lot of sun.

There were some cycling related jokes in this episode. It turns out Guy Noir is called to Eugene to help organize a “Naked Motorcade” to show that motorists are vulnerable too.
Here is the script, and MP3 of this segment.
