From live broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion.

After the birth of Garrison Keillor's daughter, the stories, songs, and sketches on A Prairie Home Companion took on a distinctly parental bent. This new collection gathers the warmest, funniest, most affectionate examples: dance tunes and comedy with sound effects; songs featuring Chet Atkins, Leo Kottke, Beaussoleil, and other guests; Ian Frazier's much-requested "Lamentations of the Father"; and Garrison's version of "The Princess and the Pea." Garrison says, "I test-played this album for my daughter, who is three, and she jumped around a lot."

Filled with stories, sketches, and songs recorded from live broadcasts, Definitely Above Average will delight parents and children everywhere.

    About the Author:

    GARRISON KEILLOR is America’s favorite storyteller. For more than 35 years, as the host of A Prairie Home Companion, he has captivated millions of listeners with his weekly News from Lake Wobegon monologues. A Prairie Home Companion is heard on hundreds of public radio stations, as well as America One, the Armed Forces Networks, Sirius Satellite Radio, and via a live audio webcast. 
     
    Keillor is also the author of several books and a frequent contributor to national publications including Time, The New Yorker, and National Geographic, in addition to writing his own syndicated column. He has been awarded a National Humanities Medal from the National Endowment of the Humanities. When not touring, he resides in St. Paul, Minnesota.

    From AudioFile:

    These songs and sketches are taken from live broadcasts of "A Prairie Home Companion" and, as such, qualify more as a concert than an actual book. It doesn't matter what the format is, though, because Keillor is a very funny fellow. Tape One contains musical selections of old children's favorites, twisted versions thereof, and some new material. Tape Two has sketches that aren't really for children, but certainly capture the fun of dealing with young ones. Most of the material is funny and warm and, in the case of "Lamentations of the Father," dangerous to listen to while driving. It is utterly priceless. Keillor fans might have heard some of these, but for the rest of us they provide a welcome diversion. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
