    Loden wool, woven in Tirol for centuries, is known for its resistance to cold and wetness. Our project in collaboration with Epaulet introduces Alpine Loden, a modern 18oz fabric blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon, woven in Italy. It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric. Partnering with Rochester Tailored Clothing, we offer custom garments like sportcoats, suits, and overcoats, made to your specifications. Learn more about the Loden collection here.

Anyone else a fan of this show on the radio?

I started listening back in college after I picked it up one time while driving home from Michigan to Arizona in about '86.

I don't catch it every week, but probably a couple of times a month. I was cracking up while listening as I drove around today.

In the same vein, I also enjoy Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me.

Why is it that the best public radio programs come from the Midwest?

I hate both of those shows, and hate that show about the mouth breathers living by the lake in Minnesota the worst of all shows on any radio stations ever. All elicit instantaneous station changing. All are completely unbearable. So, no, I don't agree that the best public radio shows come from the midwest.

I like the shows that come out of L.A. the best. Day to Day; Left, Right and Center; Bookworm; Too the Point; The Treatment. I'm not sure how many of these shows are syndicated out of Los Angeles. We're lucky to be blessed with lot of interesting radio here.

^^ I'll have to see if any of those shows are on the air here. I always like to find something good.

And I can't stand Lake Wobegon either. Something about Garrison Keillor's voice drives me up a wall.

But I disagree about the others

My band played on the show a few months ago. Cool experience.

I agree that KCRW is the coolest NPR station (not an oxymoron) -- some great music programming and offbeat literary stuff.

As I've mentioned elsewhere, Wait Wait! Don't Tell Me! is one of my favorite things.

A Prairie Home Companion is my favorite show on the radio. I love Keillor's voice.

i agree with left, right, and center and the treatment. design and architecture with frances anderton is good too. bookworm depends on the guest. the host annoys me. to the point is good if warren olney is on vacation. i've never heard of day to day. the business is also good.

Yes, this show is hilarious. The only problem is I don't listen to the radio at home and am seldom in the car on Saturday mornings when all those funny NPR radio shows are on.

I enjoy it occasionally, but Michael Feldman's schtick gets old quickly for me. I love Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me, but hardly ever get to hear it, as I only listen to the radio in the car, and I'm rarely driving when it's on. A Prairie Home Companion falls somewhere in between; the sketches are often funnier than I expect them to be, but Keillor's a mite too folksy for my big-city sensibilities. Now, This American Life"”there's a show.
