For almost 40 years, "A Prairie Home Companion" has been a beloved staple of the public radio airwaves. Host Garrison Keillor combines music with skits, comedy and storytelling for an old-time radio show that makes even city people feel nostalgic for small town life.

The Prairie Home Companion “Radio Romance” tour  is coming to Wharton Center on August 4. Current State’s Melissa Benmark caught up with Garrison Keillor by phone recently to talk about the show, and what’s romantic about radio.
