Feedback on A Prairie Home Companion, Cheri Lawson

Apr 25, 2016

We begin with a call to the listener comment line from Phyllis from Prestonsburg.  She's responding to a request for comments about the changes underway with A Prairie Home Companion now that Garrison Keillor is getting ready to retire, “I'm heartbroken that Garrison Keillor is leaving.  My opinion on the replacement is still not formed yet but, when I heard the replacement host and program, it just wasn’t the same.

I would much prefer to hear old programs, even if I have to do something on the computer. Garrison has a right to retire. I certainly support that but it’s making me very sad.”

And this comment came from our friend Lee in Lexington, “Cheri Lawson is doing a superb job of hosting the 5:00 to 6:00 segment today. Her voice is mellifluous. Her enunciation is crystalline and she can read the most stilted lines and make them sound as if they are casual, spontaneous conversations. I hope to hear her again.”

We’re always interested in your feedback.  Write to us at: WEKU@eku.edu, post on Facebook or send a tweet @889weku or leave a voice message at 859-622-1657.

Then tune in for Listener Feedback again next Monday morning at 6:49 or 8:49 or at 5:33 in the afternoon during All Things Considered on 88-9 WEKU.
