About this title


A collection of songs submitted to the "Department of Folk Songs" on the popular radio show "Prairie Home Companion" includes sea chanteys, lullabies, Native American ballads, parodies, and nonsense songs

From Library Journal:

On his highly acclaimed radio program, Garrison Keillor asked listeners to send in their favorite folk songs. The songs had to be "ones you have heard from someone else" and "to which you remember the words mostly." His request laid the groundwork for this collection of true folk songs: those passed from one person to another and subject to change. The collection, which contains over 400 songs from the show's archives, is unlike any folk song book likely to be found in public libraries, offering not the traditional classics but campfire classics ("Goober Peas"), schoolyard favorites ("Greasy Grimy Gopher Guts"), and enigmatic reworkings like "While Shepherds Washed Their Socks." With musical notation for many selections and a laugh on every page. Tim LaBorie, Drexel Univ. Lib., Philadelphia
