As if the result of some strange mass-media fluke, the popular radio program "A Prairie Home Companion" somehow managed to survive the television age to entertain its audience every Saturday night from the stage of the historic Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, Minn. Week after week, hangdog host G.K. serves as unflappable emcee to an amiable hodgepodge of radio-friendly acts that include the likes of popular country duo Yolanda and Rhonda Johnson and singing cowboys the Old Trailhands. This is one show where the under-the-line antics are nearly as entertaining as the program itself. The efforts of down-on-his-luck private dick and backstage doorkeeper Guy Noir discovers the true identity of a mysterious blonde and helps aspiring teen singer Lola to find her true voice before a live audience. There is still plenty of fun and mystery to be had at the old Fitzgerald before the final curtain falls
