    "It's been beautiful this last week. The Lake Wobegon Whippets opened their '94 home season with the annual Memorial Day doubleheader at the Wally 'Old Hard Hands' Bunsen Memorial Park." Ernie discovers the secret to a perfect knuckleball as the Whippets begin their season, high school graduates ponder their future, and the host shares a few memories of the Grand Ole Opry's last night at the Ryman, in a monologue from June 1994.

    "I get this far away from home -- couple thousand miles -- and I stay away for a long time, and I start to wonder if it's a real place or if I made it up." The town's children spend Thanksgiving sick and in bed, Senator K. Thorvaldson's mysterious love Laura comes to town to meet his family, and a few verses of "My Father, How Long," in a monologue from November 1985.

    "The rains have finally let up and we had sunshine here this week and it was a glorious, glorious 4th of July in Lake Wobegon." Marlene wins the "Best Pie in Town" contest, the World's Largest Pile of Burlap Bags celebrates its 40th anniversary, and to avoid unwanted attention, the town decides not to mark its 150th anniversary.
  • Saturday, June 28, 2014 6:00pm
    "This is the shank of summer. It's such a gorgeous time of year. It's been so beautiful in Lake Wobegon. The yards, the lawns have never looked more beautiful than they do right now." Thoughts on lawn maintenance and strawberry-rhubarb pie, the Tollefson boy considers moving to Los Angeles, and a deerfly bite helps the Whippets continue their winning season.
  • Saturday, June 21, 2014 6:00pm
    "We had some thunderstorms in Lake Wobegon this last week. We say it was a quiet week in Lake Wobegon but it was kind of wild and kind of violent." The Whippets defeat the Holdingford Bulls in the rain on another long fly ball from Wayne Tommerdahl, Father Emil returns to Our Lady of Perpetual Responsibility, garage sale season begins, and the Women's Bible Study Group goes skinny-dipping.
