Save the date

"I'd be happy to do more of this, now that I know that people like to go to movie theaters and see this. But next time we'll sing some songs with the audience. I like the idea of people standing in multiplexes around the country and singing "America the Beautiful" and "My Girl" and "Ba — ba — ba — ba — barbara Ann." — Garrison Keillor

The first cinecast was so succesful, we are doing it again. On October 21, 2010, A Prairie Home Companion will be beamed into more than 500 cinemas — more information to follow.
