See what WLT was "really like" before it became the radio station featured in the Robert Altman film.

In 1926, brothers Ray and Roy Soderbjerrg plunge into radio by founding Station WLT (With Lettuce and Tomato) in order to rescue their failing restaurant and become the Sandwich Kings of South Minneapolis. For the next 25 years, the "Friendly Neighbor" station produces a dazzling—not to mention, odd—array of shows and stars.

Brilliantly weaving together the real lives and radio lives of his characters, Garrison Keillor has given us a comic, poignant, and slightly steamy novel, full of romance, intrigue, tough business, and loose living.

Listener Opinions

    " This was my second reading. Keillor is a great storyteller and he sets this story in the early days of radio. Must admit that the second reading was not as humorous as the first. "

    " 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. "

    " A bit darker than much of Keillor's other works, but what I love about him is that there's sort of a dark current underneath the folksy nostagia, and I'd be interested in reading something even darker from Mr. K, 'cuz I know he has it in him! "

    " I did not finish every page of this book - only about half. I didn't hate, but I didn't love it. It was mostly just stories like his radio show but they seemed a little disjointed to me so I moved on with my life. They did contain his trademark wit and penchant for the absurd though. "
