Dear Garrison Keillor,
The lewd skit tonight with the liquids in the airport trashcan disgusted us to the point that we had to turn off the radio (particularly frustrating since I was quite fascinated by the tuba jazz band).
My wife and I have memories of listening to your show and stories for more than 20 years. Please do not make us stop by continuing with such inappropriate humor.
It's all Fred Newman's fault, Mr. M. The script itself was not lewd but the squirting and squorting sounds were very suggestive. Sounds of viscosity can arouse a powerful reaction in listeners' minds, and that's what happened there. We have fined Fred $500 for lewd conduct and told him never to do oils or lotions ever again.
