Book Description

Aug. 7 2012 Prairie Home Companion
Tom Keith had a wonderful ear for sound and beautiful sense of comic timing.
 
 As a schoolboy imitator of birds, livestock, and people being punched in the face, he had natural abilities that pointed to a career in the Live Radio Sound Effects Production Industry. But by the time he graduated from the University of Minnesota in the late ’60s, that once well-traveled career path was deserted. Tom joined the Marines instead, and he learned to mimic helicopters and do seven different kinds of explosion.
 
 Still there were no jobs, so he took an engineering post, babysitting a public radio transmitter while a tall, quiet writer tried to turn his imaginary world into a show. Tom was enlisted as an accomplice and immediately found his calling, eventually entertaining millions as the regular sound-effects man for A Prairie Home Companion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Valuable Addition to the PHC Comedy Catalog Sept. 12 2012
By Marty Nielsen - Published on Amazon.com
Nice addition to the Prairie Home Companion comedy catalog, unfortunately prompted by the untimely death of long-time sound effects specialist Tom Keith. The tracks are all Garrison Keillor scripts recounting various adventures featuring Tom ala "The Sound Effects Man" from the PHC "Comedy Theater" album. It is fun to hear the tight interplay between GK and TK after all of those years together. There is little variation on the album but if you like this kind of thing (which I do), then you will love this album. (Curiously the liner notes are not written by GK.)

Track listing:

Gunflint Trail (1/16/99)
The Big Meanie 1/23/99)
Inner Passage (3/9/02)
March Madness (3/30/02)
Bar Flies (4/5/03)
Radio Decency (6/12/99)
Bad Loon (10/4/08)

3.0 out of 5 stars I listened to this and it was somewhat entertaining March 19 2014

I found this somewhat entertaining, but would have better enjoyed it if I better understood the ins and outs of what they were doing so that I could better replicate it.
