“Oh, hear that old piano, from down the avenue.
I smell the banana bread, I look around for you
My sweet, sweet old someone, comin’ through that door
It’s Saturday an’
The band is playin’,
Honey, could we ask for more?”
~ Garrison Keillor, REAL SONG THEME TUNE
Even though I no longer live in St. Paul, Minnesota, I am transported to one of my favourite places, Uncle Bob’s house. It is where I first began to enjoy the sounds and stories of Garrison Keillor. It is why I still put the Prairie Home Companion on the radio every Sunday afternoon. It is to help your young ears understand that there is more to the radio than Justin Bieber, Shaun Mendes and Katy Perry.
A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY, UNCLE BOB! 89! YOU ARE A SUPERSTAR! xo
