One Response to The Voices of Prairie Home

  1. Mary Kerwin says:

    My daughter and I went to the live production of PHC at the World Arena this afternoon and then came home and listened to the broadcast on KRCC just to hear it one more time. It was an awesome experience — full of fun and laughs as well as wonderful musical moments. We were thrilled by the Haunted Windchimes — they were SO COOL! I’m proud to be a Minnesotan by heritage and at heart, but I’m equally proud to be a KRCC listener from Colorado Springs. Thanks to Jeff, Delaney and everyone who made this great afternoon of entertainment possible. I’m Lutheran — I mean that sincerely!
