Celebrate the warmth of Christmas Day-listening to Garrison Keillor, the Royal Academy of Radio Actors, The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band and sound effects wizard Fred Newman, live from New York City in a very special Christmas show. In fact, Garrison's special guests will be poet Sharon Olds, author Ian Frazier and playwright and author Paul Rudnick. Musical guest will be pianist Rob Fisher.

Prairie Home Companion

Here's the word from Garrison: "I and some writers I especially admire will talk about Christmas when we were kids and read some writing about our respective families." It will be about, he says, "sweet reminiscence" of Christmases of past. This is one Prairie Home not to miss, an incredibly rare treat for the gang and listeners alike.

The show will come from the intimate, 449-seat Merkin Concert Hall at Kaufman Center.
