Prairie Home Hada

This just in:

Garrison Keillor, host of A Prairie Home Companion and of The Writer's Almanac, would like to include poems by Ken Hada in his program [That's Keillor on the left in the photo at right]. The poems and broadcast date are:

“Old Men” from Spare Parts October 25, 2010
“A Blessing” from Spare Parts October 27, 2010
“Mormon Missionaries Pay Me a Visit” from Spare Parts October 30, 2010

The Writer’s Almanac is a daily radio program produced by American Public Media (APM). In each program Mr. Keillor presents a list of cultural events and anniversaries, many associated with literature and literary figures, then ends with the poetry reading. APM currently distributes the program for broadcast to about 320 non-commercial public radio stations around the country. The program audio is also streamed and podcast from and archived on the APM website at and may be streamed, archived on carrying station websites as well. In addition, we would appreciate permission to put the text of the poem on those websites and promotional materials, only in connection with The Writer’s Almanac.

This, of course, means that all of us who know Dr. Hada are now just two degrees of separation away from Lindsey Lohan!  (And Meryl Streep.)  Woo hoo!

Congrats, Dr. Hada!
