Garrison Keillor at my Beck and Call

A while back, I was delighted to discover the Prairie Home Companion [link corrected] website. “At last!” I thought to myself, “I’ll be able to listen to PHC when I have time, rather than having to try to catch it at the painfully inconvenient times NPR insists on broadcasting.” I was thwarted, however, as they were only posting little selected bits of each show online that I didn’t have the patience to click through, knowing I’d still be missing a lot.

I sent the webmaster a grumpy email, and recieved a gracious reply, explaining that while they thought it was a great idea to have the entire shows available online for listening, they didn’t have enough drive space — an answer I was reluctantly forced to accept.

Well, since then, evidently disks have become cheaper or their budget has become larger, because the archives now feature entire shows you can listen to. Additionally, when taping is going on, you can eavesdrop on live audio or video feeds from the show. So if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a whole lot of listening to do.
