A Prairie Home Companion has been entertaining live audiences since 1974, featuring comedy sketches, music, and Garrison Keillor's signature monologue, "The News from Lake Wobegon."
Step aboard the Saturday afternoon train to music of the world in the folk tradition.

As part of our dedication to timeless music, High Plains Public Radio continues to bring you classical music every weekday afternoon. National hosts Valerie Kahler and Julie Amacher bring decades of classical music background to the show, plus a wealth of stories and information.
Classical Guitar Alive! will be back on the air November 3rd.
Tony Morris is heard each week by radio listeners of over 200 stations across the United States, and world-wide via internet broadcasts as the host of the Classical Guitar Alive! program. The program enthusiastically promotes classical guitar-related music, performers and composers from many nationalities and cultures while integrating the work of American composers and performers.
Sunday Baroque features Baroque and early music written before 1750. Composers such as Bach, Vivaldi, and Handel were the cornerstones of this era, with favorites including The Water Music, Royal Fireworks Music, and the Brandenburg Concertos. Hosted by Suzanne Bona, Sunday Baroque celebrates the current wealth of recorded music with great performances by yesterday's and today's best performers.
Click and Clack, the Tappet brothers, diagnose car problems and crack a lot of jokes every week on Car Talk. It's a call-in style show where the long-time mechanics don't know what kind of call they'll get. Callers describe the odd noises and behavior of their cars and the brothers arrive at a diagnosis and give some advice.
