Garrison Keillor’s Travel Blog

For better or worse, I’m a major National Public Radio nerd, to the extent that most Saturday evenings you can find me (if you’re a stalker) at home listening to A Prairie Home Companion, the folksie, olde-timey radio show hosted by the inimitable national treasure Garrison Keillor. What can I say — although I grew up in New Jersey (God’s country), my folks are originally from Minnesota, so it’s my long-time ritual way of keeping in touch with my ancestral homeland.

On the subway ride to work today, I was browsing my new PHC catalog (the print edition), and because multi-channel marketing really does work, I called up the catalog and show’s web site, where I discovered Keillor’s “blog.” Granted, on the blog homepage itself, it calls itself a “travel diary,” but on the Stuff page, the link that caught my eye says “GK’s Travel Blog.” True, it hasn’t been updated since March, but judging by the archives, he did update it frequently in spurts; maybe he just hasn’t been on the road much since then. Worth keeping an eye on.

The site also blog-like musings from Russ Ringsak the show’s “resident writer and truck driver.”

  1. Not a blog: Garrison Keillor's Travel Diary

    Via Rick Bruner, I read that American writer and broadcaster Garrison Keillor has a blog. Except he doesn't. Keillor's "blog" is actually just a basic web page, built by some coder, with text presented in reverse chronological order…

  2. Thanks for the heads up on the GK blog. Funny, it wasn’t until I lived in Alaska that I found out about “A Prairie Home Companion” (I’m from and live in Minnesota).
