Happy web greetings to my daughter Kristina and her boyfriend Chris on the occasion of their very first live PHC experience. It's been 28 years in the coming, since you were a little girl and we first listened to the News from Lake Wobegon together, since the PHC tapes lullabied you into dreamland. And yes Kristina, it is ok to close your eyes tonight, listen, and be transported again to where dreams come true. Love, Dad and Mom

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.
