    Whenever I have read parts of the Bible, I always imagine God to talk in this author s voice Also, there should be a law passed that Garrison Keillor is the ONLY man allowed to talk on the PA system at planetariums.

    I m just not sure that the novel is Keillor s best form This has his trademark quirky characters and settings, but after a couple of hundred pages, I got weary of all the quirkiness.

    Full disclosure here I love this book because I enjoy Garrison Keillor s work, and because like him I love the romance of radio as it was For a few years in my youth REAL rock and roll arrived in my small town they were big on Beautiful Music and Easy Listening there, and Baptist church services on Sunday after dark, when the AM powerhouses like CLKW and WCFL would start to come in The Grand Ole Opry which is still on from WS...

    WLT A Radio Romance by Garrison Keillor covers the maverick days of radio much as The Rocky Mountain Moving Picture Association by Loren D Estleman does for the early days of filmmaking in Hollywood With all his years in radio, Keillor excels at pointing out the oddities of running a small radio station and the dangers of competing against the big networks WLT s history is believable even down to the detail that the call letters stand for with lettuce and tomato Where WLT falters is in the WLT A Radio Romance by Garrison Keillor covers the maverick days of radio much as The Rocky Mountain Moving Picture Association by Loren D Estleman does for the early days of filmmaking in Hollywood With all his years in radio, Keillor excels at pointing out the oddities of running a small radio station and the dangers of competing against the big networks WLT s history is believable even down to the detail that the call letters...

    Perhaps Garrison Keillor felt he needed to balance his depiction of tranquil, bucolic Minnesotan life in the Lake Wobegone books Perhaps he felt the need to say things in a book that he couldn t say on the air in his radio show Perhaps he was simply expressing frustration at the dwindling influence radio variety shows have had over the pas...

    I ve gotten sort of bored of this book at least I did a year ago when I last put it down I think I may give up on it soon, because the other option would be to start over from the beginning I was about halfway through, and the idea of slogging through it all again just isn t at...

    This may have been a good book, but I couldn t get past the pubescent male humor of the first 2 chapters, so I quit reading it I really loved Lake Woebegon Days, so was especially disaapointed with this book.

  8. says:

    There s a good story here, perhapsthan one, but it gets bogged down to me Perhaps it is that there isthan one story like it feels like and Keillor never decides which he wants to tell Perhaps it sthat I just didn t like the style and others would find it fine I did enjoy much of it, but over...

    Lake Wobegon it ain t Chronicles the rise and fall of radio station W L T and various characters connected therewith Funny sometimes bizarre , ribald and definitely not sweet Is this Keillor s reaction to people s mistaking Lake Wobegon for reality or is it the way radio really is behind the ...

    Funny and entertaining Downsides were the frequent and unnecessary X rated scenes and a randomly introduced character being followed by the narrative for the rest of the book, when the day to day happenings of the radio station seemedeffective in my opinion.
