On June 25, WCMU Public Radio (Mt. Pleasant) will celebrate Garrison Keillor and his 40+ years with “A Prairie Home Companion.”
The date will be the second to last show with Garrison as host, and the station is hosting a benefit dinner and a listening party at the Bovee University Center on the campus of Central Michigan University.
The party will kick off at 4:30 p.m. with live music from the Palooka Brothers, followed by a traditional cast meal of Mama Keillor’s meatloaf, hot dish, powder milk biscuits, rhubarb pie, and a cash bar. At 6:00 p.m. guests will settle in and enjoy the live broadcast.
Tickets are being sold online and all proceeds benefit CMU Public Radio.
