The News from Lake Wobegon podcast is updated every Monday, (unless it's a holiday weekend).
Due to rights restrictions and existing contracts, we are unable to produce a podcast version of each week's entire show. However, since GK is the only one performing during the monologue "The News from Lake Wobegon," we are pleased to make that availablenow as a free podcast.

How do I get podcasts?
To subscribe to a podcast, you first need software to detect and download the audio, such as iTunes or Juice Receiver. Each podcast provides a URL to tell the software where to get the new audio content. All podcast software includes a field where you paste the URL of the podcast and a Subscribe button or other way to indicate you want to automatically download new things to listen to.
Lovingly selected from the earliest archives of A Prairie Home Companion, this heirloom collection represents the music from earliest years of the now legendary show: 1974–1976. With songs and tunes from jazz pianist Butch Thompson, mandolin maestro Peter Ostroushko, Dakota Dave Hull and the first house band, The Powdermilk Biscuit Band (Adam Granger, Bob Douglas and Mary DuShane).
