...am I the only one that mutes the show for the first 15 - 20 minutes, because that's always when Garrison Keillor sings?

I also wish that the show had a greater variety of musical guests. I was actually kind of glad when Odetta finally died (I'm a terrible person) so they would stop having her come on and mangle classic spirituals, after which Keillor would use his high cooing voice to illustrate the depth of his regard for her talent. There are lots of great singer-songwriters and bands out there who are making contemporary music that would be perfect for that show, but we usually get some combination of Scottish or Celtic bands, New York opera singers, or Americana traditionalists doing medleys.

My favorite part is when he breathes into the microphone. So sexy....

And lets not forget the pain of Guy Noir for a half hour of every episode.

I appreciate that he writes the whole thing, but he needs some new material.

This discussion is making me hungry for a piece of Bebop Rebop Rhubarb Pie.

I've tried to like it. I really have. But it's never clicked with me. The whole show feels a bit off, not quite what I'm looking for.

On the other hand, I love The Vinyl Cafe with Stuart McLean on CBC Radio. That's what I hope for from PHC but don't find there.

I like Garrison Keillor's singing.

I mute the first 5 minutes of Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour so I don't have to listen to Michael Johnathan sing.

I muted this thread. What the hell are you all blathering about? Oh wait, I don't care.
