* EverybodyOwnsAFord: Non - ProductPlacement variation; Every ''Lutheran'' drives a Ford; every ''Catholic'' drives a Chevy, the local dealers being members of those two churches respectively. Oh, and don't even think of buying the wrong make (or, heaven help you, ''foreign''), lest you fall victim to a [[BananaInTheTailpipe potato up your tailpipe]].

* '''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 [[ShaggyDogStory Shaggy Dog Stories]] and some dogs turn out shaggier than others.

* FictionalProvince: Lake Wobegon isn't just a fictional town, it's the county seat of a fictional Minnesota county called Mist County. Supposedly Mist County is what happened when the initial surveyors of Minnesota missed a chunk of land. The mapmakers didn't want to go back and redo all their work (i.e. putting Lake Wobegon on the map), so they fudged the map to ignore Mist County.

The radio show was [[SoundToScreenAdaptation adapted into a film]] (famed director RobertAltman's last) in 2006 - starring an EnsembleCast and Garrison Keillor AsHimself - which was generally well-received. It has its own page [[Film/APrairieHomeCompanion here]].

** 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".
