Host a Listening Party for Garrison Keillor's Last Show


We all knew the day was coming, now it's almost here! After 42 years as host and creative force behind A Prairie Home Companion, Garrison Keillor will hang up his red shoes July 2nd. We know you'll want to tune your radio and listen during your Independence Day weekend celebrations.

If you'd like to take the celebration up a notch, you can host your own Listening Party. Our friends at A Prairie Home Companion have assembled a Listening Party Starter Kit, complete with:

  • Party tips and instructions
  • Trivia Questions and games
  • PHC Selfie signs
  • Recipe Cards (Mother's meatloaf)
  • Powdermilk Biscuit and Catchup Advisory Board labels
  • PHC placemats

The kits are digital, so you can pick and choose which items you'd like to use at your party. To get yours, contact our Membership department - membership@wcqs.org or call us at 828-210-4800.
Join us in gathering 'round the radio to celebrate the iconic Garrison Keillor!
