Sound Effects Public Radio Style

You’ve seen the TV commercials where squirrels talk and dogs bark right on cue. Turns out most of the sounds are made by… people… sound effect masters like Fred Newman.  Newman makes all the fun sounds like lighting up a cigarette or a dripping faucet- that you hear on A Prairie Home Companion. Friday the 26th you can hear Fred Newman create sound effects when Garrison Keillor and the whole cast of A Prairie Home Companion take the stage in Eagle….. Adam Cotterell talked with Newman ahead of the show and asked him what his favorite sound is.
