Chris Thile (pronounced THEE-lee) is indeed the new host for at least the last year. The show is now called "Live From Here," not the most original name, and I do like the musical segments. The comedy, not so much.

Keillor showed his true colors when he *sued* some young kid who posted a PHC parody online. honestly, really?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/20/18 10:35am JakeGould:

Will just say this, I hated “Prairie Home Companion”’s humor when I first heard it, but then I laughed at a few shows before Garrison got kicked off.

The kind of humor that “Live From Here” engages in is distinctly midwestern. And this Brooklyn born kid can’t stand it.

“Chain of Fools” and “Rock Steady” are great!

Joe! Did you read this interview with John Landis about Aretha Franklin? Some great stuff: “So we got a piano, she sat in a recording studio, and it was Universal Studios’ recording studios in Chicago, a very old, funky studio we were delighted to be in because it was where Chess Records did all their recordings. We had a piano for her. She sat with her back to us, at the keys, and the piano and her voice was mic’d. She did it once, listened to the playback. She said, “I’d like to do it again.” She played piano as she sang, and the second take is the one in the movie.” deadline.com...

Speaking of revenge films, everyone needs to see “Death Wish” at least once: Charles Bronson’s wife is killed by a gang lead by Jeff Goldblum and the end of the film has Christopher Guest (as a cop) covering up for him.

Also, Charles Bronson’s lack of emotions at all points is pretty hilarious. Especially when he is clearly trying to get upset. He just always is the same.

Great show, Joe. Alas no Horslips or Val Doonican!!
  Mon. 8/20/18 11:51am Somebody:

Yeah, great show as always!
But seriously, what is the music that plays behind Joe when he talks? It sounds good.

I guess Scary Eire's The Dole Q doesn't qualify as a story, not fictional enough
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/20/18 11:54am Joe McG:

Bands I didn't get to: Loudest Whisper, De Danaan, Pogues, Dr. Strangely Strange...looks like there may be a Part 2 in the future...

@Joe well there is The Táin but that is a concept album, outside your remit.

@TLMonk, I'll try to be nicer to the raccoons. Maybe I'll feed Don Felder to them.

Thanks Joe!
