Long-time radio personality and host of A Prairie Home Companion, Garrison Keillor, suffered a minor stroke over the weekend and was treated at St. Mary's Hospital at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. 

"He is up and moving around, speaking sensibly, working at a laptop, and it's expected he'll be released on Friday," spokesman Karl Oestreich said.

"He plans to resume a normal schedule next week."

Keillor has said that he got the idea for A Prairie Home Companion by watching the Grand Ole Opry and the show has been host to many country stars. You can find out more info and listen to recorded broadcasts here.

Here's wishing you a speedy recovery, Mr. Keillor.
