Garrison Keillor: The Man on the Radio in the Red Shoes
Regarded by many as America's foremost humorist and likened by others to a late 20th century reincarnation of Samuel Langhorne Clemens and Will Rogers, Minnesota-based Garrison Keillor commenced his popular public radio series A Prairie Home Companion in 1974. In each weekly three-hour broadcast, Keillor utilizes folk music, often parodistic playlets, satirical product endorsements and gentle short stories to both send up old-time radio programs and conjure up an enchanting view of middle Americana. Created as an episode of PBS's popular American Masters documentary series, Peter Rosen's Garrison Keillor: The Man On the Radio in the Red Tennis Shoes looks beyond the mythos of A Prairie Home Companion to profile Keillor biographically and examine his unusual litany of contributions to American pop culture.~ Nathan Southern, All Movie Guide Rated No Rating .
