MINNESOTA PUBLIC RADIO issued an apology before this weekend's repeat airing of "A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION" because of the word "G-ddamn" appearing in a song sung by guest ROBBIE FULKS.
The MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE reports that the blasphemous word aired live in the song "Where I Fell" on the SATURDAY edition of GARRISON KEILLOR's show but was bleeped from the SUNDAY rebroadcast with the apology attached.
MPR issued a "language advisory" to stations after the initial airing.
