You’ve been listening to it for decades now on KRCC and you’ve always wondered… well, not what Garrison Keillor looks like. (Everyone knows what Garrison Keillor looks like: linen/gray suit, red shoes, red tie, Donald Trump coiffure). But you’ve always wondered what everyone else looks like—like the guy who sings the “Catsup” song and that wonderful woman who does all the really whiny voices and (is this starting to sound like A Prairie Home Companion script yet?)

Point is, you’re probably never going to make it to St. Paul or happen to be in any of the big cities when it’s recording live. And let’s face it, even if you were, you’d never get tickets. That’s why you need to go see it broadcast live as an encore in HD on February 9 at one of your local movie theaters. In Colorado Springs, it’s showing at Tinseltown, Cinemark Carefree Circle and Hollywood Theaters 14. In Pueblo, it’s showing at Tinseltown Pueblo. Complete details on performers (including Elvis Costello), theaters nearest you and tickets can all be found HERE.

If you’re feeling lucky, you can stay tuned to KRCC or be one of the TBS readers to email us at by Noon and lay claim to a pair of these tickets. We’ll email or call you back and ask you which tickets you’d like based on what’s available on a first-come basis (so please include your phone number!) PLEASE NOTE: YOU MUST ABLE TO PICK THE TICKETS UP AT KRCC, 912 N. WEBER BY 5 p.m. TOMORROW or your tickets will go to the next person in line. Note that there are tickets for both the LIVE and the ENCORE performances:
