* '''The News from Lake Wobegon''': Garrison relates the goings-on in his (fictional) hometown of Lake Wobegon, Minnesota; as noted above, while it's always been a quiet week, a lot manages to happen quietly, considering the EccentricTownsfolk. This is the most beloved feature, and Keillor has written books about Lake Wobegon. The monologues are actually partially or entirely improvised based on an scenario or outline, which is why some end up as ShaggyDogStories and some dogs turn out shaggier than others.

Added DiffLines:

** The fourth of the annual "Farewell Performance of A Prairie Home Companion" shows from before the show came back for good was broadcast from Iowa, leading Garrison to write a song explaining why he chose to broadcast from there called "Why Iowa?" to the tune of the gospel hymn "Love Lifted Me".
