Prairie Lope Companion

We'll be taking breaks this week from editing Ace's August trip to post from the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson. Saturday, Ace visited with Garrison Keillor after a live broadcast of National Public Radio's Prairie Home Companion.

Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius was a guest star in the broadcast. Prairie Home Companion cast member Sue Scott is seen at right.

The show was a sell out; here, audience members sing along.

Kansas Jazz performer Kelly Hunt, always popular in the Hutchinson area, also guested.

Dig Garrison's shoes.

Violinist Elana Fremerman - between her, Hunt, Sebelius and Scott, this was an attractive stage.

"Powdermilk Biscuits" is a fictional sponsor of the program.

A familiar Keillor gesture.
