Garrison Keillor on stage.As much as Halloween is a time for laughter, fun, and spookiness it is a time to reflect upon years gone by. Halloween harkens back to a primal time in our past when unseen spirits guided and tormented our lives. We convey this past to future generations through our stories. Stories of friends and family, tales of boyhood adventures, and epics of myth and legend.

I love hearing a good story more than just about anything and Garrison Keillor is one of America's premier wordsmiths. For over 25 years, through his radio show, A Prairie Home Companion, He has been spinning tales of simpler times and places. Stories of a nearly forgotten time in our nation's history when we were carefree and un-rushed. A time when autumn nights held the mystery and excitement of the unknown.

Below are some links to Real Audio™ files featuring Halloween and autumn sketches by Garrison Keillor from A Prairie Home Companion. Be sure to listen to The Raven, arguably the single finest reading of Poe's work I have ever heard.

You can hear A Prairie Home Companion on KQED 88.5 FM both Saturdays at 6 PM and Sundays at 11 AM or you can listen to the show live both in audio and video by visiting APHC's website at http://phc.mpr.org between 6 and 8 PM ET.
