Garrison Keillor and "The Writer's Almanac"

Every morning, just before nine o'clock, WGBH in Boston runs a short syndicated feature from American Public Media called The Writer's Almanac. Garrison Keillor talks about a few notable literary figures born on this date and then reads a short poem.

When I happen to be driving to work around this time of day, I am always transfixed. I love Garrison Keillor, and I really enjoy the poems and the bit of history that he provides.

It's a small thing, in the scheme of media, about 5 minutes, but I really enjoy it.
