Saturday evenings at 6 p.m. and Sundays at noon.
Saturday, August 23, 2014 7:00pm"It was very brutally, brutally hot here this last week and the deerflies came in, which is a form of plague." Powerful storms roll into Lake Wobegon, Luanne Peterson copes with the arrival of a new patient in the pediatric intensive care unit, and a story to comfort Luanne when she breaks down under an overpass during the storm, in a monologue from June 2012.
Saturday, August 16, 2014 7:00pm"Our beautiful fall has come to an end. We got a frost here on Monday Night. People were talking about it down at the Chatterbox Cafe." A monologue from October 2013, Eloise Krebsbach runs for mayor, the Lutheran Church updates its directory, Carl Krebsbach does a few odd jobs around town, and the Hedlunds dig up a Lake Wobegon ghost story.
Saturday, August 9, 2014 7:00pm"Had a little bit of front on Monday just to remind us, you know, where we live. But otherwise it was warm. It was up in the 60s." In a monologue from April 2012, the Lake Wobegon Whippets take some spring batting practice, Bud learns a lesson about friendship while putting the dock in the water, and Pastor Liz has an exciting evening on Easter Sunday.
Saturday, August 2, 2014 7:00pm"It was the end of school on Wednesday and it was high school graduation on Thursday evening -- some major, major events in our town." A few women appoint themselves "Pentecost Monitors" at the Lutheran Church, Pastor Ingqvist counsels prospective newlyweds, and the high school seniors play their annual practical joke on Superintendent Halvorson, in a monologue from June 2009.
Saturday, July 26, 2014 7:00pm"It's been hot out there this last week. It's been humid too, so that you wake up in the morning and there's a mist out over the meadows, beautiful mist with the sun shining through it." Gladys feels a longing for doomed love while listening to the opera, the Hansens' dove-breeding business goes awry, Judy Ingqvist searches for elegance, and a few verses of "Aften (Stille, Hjerte, Sol gaar ned)," in a monologue from June 2007.
