Not Much to report from Lake Wobegon

Have you ever listen to the news from Lake Wobegon by Garrison Keilor. He is an awesome narrator and if you should get a chance to listen to some of his stuff, you absolutely won't be disappointed.
I especially love to listen to him on a stormy day or late in the evening when I am getting ready to go to sleep. He has a great voice and it is very melodic and soothing.
He is funny and whimsical and a real joy to listen to.
I haven't listen to him for a while so I just ordered his best four disc grouping called Spring, Summer, Winter,Fall on Lake Wobegon.
He has many other great stories and fun to just sit and listen like old time radio.
If you have a couple minutes to listen, sit down and take a break and listen to one of his stories.

 A young narrator chronicles his coming-of-age in Minnesota's Lake Wobegon, a fictitious small town where all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average. Based on the enormously popular "Prairie Home Companion", Keillor's show on public radio, this collection of stories of modern Midwestern life skyrocketed to the top of the bestseller lists in the mid 1980s, and remained there. In this small Minnesota town, "all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average." The book won the collective heart of the country, and critics found it impossible to refrain from quoting sizable portions of it in their reviews.
