Weight[edit]

There's a mention of his height (for some reason) in the opening paragraph. Does anybody know his weight? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.97.18.12 (talk) 15:27, 7 April 2012 (UTC)


Copyright problem[edit]

This article has been reverted by a bot to this version as part of a large-scale clean-up project of multiple article copyright infringement.

Garrison?[edit]

The article states that his birth name was "Gary Edward Keillor," but says nothing about where the nickname "Garrison" came frome, or whether he's now adopted it as his legal name. Worth a mention, at least? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.92.174.105 (talk) 00:49, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

Signature[edit]

If this article is in need of Mr. Keillor's signature, I can provide it (pictured). I met him at a book signing in the Roberts Orpheum Theatre in St. Louis, Missouri, and personally autographed a copy of one of his books, "Homegrown Democrat", for me.

Musical career[edit]

A friend of mine pointed out that there is no section on Keillor's musical career, and erstwhile talents. He was/is part of the Hopeful Gospel Quartet, a group that released at least one CD. They suggested that there was evidence that the reason he started the radio show PHC was to get folks he could sing with and a reasonable excuse to do a lot of singing. Is anyone interested in following up this lead? --Bejnar (talk) 05:05, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
