FUN Movie: "A Prairie Home Companion"!!!
Normally I don't like movies like this, but y'all have to watch this one - My wife dragged me in to see it, and I enjoyed the hell out of it!!! :D
You GOTTA hear the "Bad Joke" song that they play on the air without permission - It's destined to be a #1 hit single. Maybe that's the main reason I liked the movie, but it also had a down-home innocent flavor about it that you just don't see in movies anymore. It made me sad that I missed most of that bygone era in radio, but I remember some of it :p
