    I know Howard never heard of this radio show even though it's been on the air for 42 years....
    Garrison Keillor has been part of my weekends forever. Anyone else out in Stern Forum ever listen?

    yeah it was an old fashioned live radio program. His sound effects guy was also a guy named Fred. (but real, Fred, not Eric).

    I do.
    I like him- on the radio. In fact I love him on the radio.
    That fucker lived on my block and he is an grade AAA asshole in person. He is the 180 degree opposite of the character he portrays.

    When I moved out, my first apartment was his original sound guy's- a man named Tom Keith. Now he was one helluva good guy.

    I will give it a shot. I hope I like it. It's like when Star Trek the Next Generation came on, I refused to watch the first season cause there weren't the REAL Star Trek. Once I started to watch it, I liked it probably better than the original :)

    If you listen, you've heard Chris, he's on quite a bit either solo or with his current band The Punch Brothers.
    He pretty much has unrivaled abilities on mandolin from bluegrass to really difficult classical.

    Yes I've definitely heard him. I think he's been on more recently, at least I've noticed him lately.

    I would listen occasionally and it was fun
    The guy was an absolute genius crafting a whole world and the way he told stories and talked. With autotune and shit like that people don't appreciate or even recongnize true Orson Wells type talent anymore.

    I think the story is he has a touch of Downs Syndrome.

    Kinda looks more like a mild case of Peter Dinklage Head.
