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.
We start with a call to the WEKU Listener Comment Line, “I have been listening to public radio for over 25 years and I’ve listened to a lot of great stations. But, I wanted to tell you that WEKU is my favorite public radio station, actually any radio station ever.”
The caller continues, “I love the thoughtful and interesting talk you have on all day. I learn things all the time and I am so grateful that you are a presence in our community.”
Here we go again, apologizing for a technical issue, but seriously the problem with A Prairie Home companion on Saturday evening was a computer playlist error that went unnoticed when prepping for the weekend. For those who are really interested in what goes on behind the scenes, feel free to read on. Otherwise, we won't be offended.
