It was a quiet week. This is a Golden Oldie from the archives of A Prairie Home Companion -- November, 1985. It's an interesting broadcast, hearing Garrison Keillor from almost 30 years ago -- he's a bit more wistful than he is today and has a fun perspective about Lake Wobegon and Minnesota in general. As for the news, the town's children spend Thanksgiving sick and in bed, Senator K. Thorvaldson's mysterious love Laura comes to town to meet his family.
