LAWRENCE — Radio personality Garrison Keillor will perform March 9 at the Lied Center of Kansas University. In a solo performance, Keillor will present “Stories From Lake Wobegon” about his experiences growing up in the Midwest. His live radio variety show, “A Prairie Home Companion,” is heard each week by more than 4 million listeners on 590 public radio stations. The highlight of each radio program is Keillor’s second-half monologue called “The News From Lake Wobegon,” a fictitious small town in Minnesota based in part on Keillor’s own childhood experiences. The show has been broadcast for about 36 years. Keillor was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame at Chicago’s Museum of Broadcast Communications and he’s become a cultural icon often lampooned by other shows. Tickets are $42 for the public and $21 for students and youth and are on sale at the Lied ticket office, (785) 864-2787 or (785) 864-2777 TDD; Murphy Hall box office, (785) 864-3982; and on-line at lied.ku.edu.
Tuesday, Feb. 15, 1:30 p.m.
