September 14, 2013

To: Adam
It's great to have you home for a few days in Minnesota, where the musky are strong, the walleye all tasty, and the northern are all above average.
—Scott Gregory

To: Roy and Donna Johnson
Happy 60th wedding anniversary from Erik & Sandy and Julie & Steve!

To: Mom & Dad, Buz and Dody Steward
Dear Mom and Dad: Happy 69th Anniversary. We LOVE YOU MORE THAN EVER !
—Jim & Cindy Steward

To: Multiple, if possible, see note
(If possible, please include both below. If not, because of the 25 word limit, disregard the Thanks part to Chris) Thanks Chris, for tickets that spared a 7am wait-in-line on this 1200 trip we made without tickets secured in advance. To Troy, whose 5 day-minted, finally official divorce was the impetus for this celebration, I say: I can’t wait to “meatloaf in the street” with you!
—Susan Gralla

To: Michael Margherita
Happy 25th Birthday Michael at Tulane Law. Surprise! We're going to see Garrison Keillor when he comes to New Orleans. See you then! Love, Mom
—Karen Scheible

To: Susan Endres
Hi Susan, greetings from sunny St. Paul to you, Brandi and Tom. You as a Prairie Home Companion-Fan for decades will know best what it means to hear and see the show live in the Fitzgerald Theater. Wow!! Thanks for the nice time at Brandi&Tom's wedding in West Point.
—Constanze and Wolfgang Bayer

To: Andrew Haven
Dad and Carol, thanks for making the trip to my new home in the Twin Cities and for believing in this professional English major. It only took a decade and several rounds of grad school, but I finally got that grown-up job!
—Kristen Haven

To: Matt
Greetings and kudos on your recent graduation. You may have a PhD now, but I get to eat my fill of meatloaf really, our accomplishments are equal.
—Robyn N

September 12, 2013

To: Scott
Happy Birthday to my best chance for happiness! Whoever thought we'd be celebrating in St. Paul, dancing in the street and eating meatloaf?
—Jody Hucko

September 11, 2013

To: Paul
I've been listening to A Prairie Home Companion since almost the beginning, for over three decades, and I have yet to convince someone to send greetings to me in all that time, not even when I got my Ph. D. or when I got married. So Paul would like to send congratulations to himself for getting his tenure application in at Spelman College. Anyone got a deal with that?
—Paul Camp

September 9, 2013

To: Mom
26 days since I tied the knot. Brought him to watch this show, and dance in the streets. It’s not my fault he didn’t read the fine print! Love you!
—Charis Yaniz

To: Denny and Sylvia
Happy 54th Anniversary. Enjoy the meatloaf supper and hopefully dad can practice his Lutheran line dance with kindred spirits. Love you. Berit
—Berit Pedersen

Announce an engagement, admonish the babysitter, celebrate a birthday, or just say hi. At each live show, we collect greetings from the audience and from the Web site for Garrison to read on the air.

Each week's greetings will be collected and posted with that week's broadcast in the archive, and may be selected to be read on the air. To see your greeting, go to "Old Shows" and find the week you submitted it.
