ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Humorist Garrison Keillor hosted his first broadcast of "A Prairie Home Companion" since suffering a minor stroke nearly three weeks ago.

Keillor launched a new season of his popular public radio show Saturday night with a live broadcast from the Fitzgerald Theater in downtown St. Paul.

The 67-year-old Keillor suffered a mild stroke on Labor Day and spent four nights at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. He soon returned to work and said he had no plans to postpone the upcoming season of "Prairie Home."

The season premiere was followed by an annual meatloaf supper and free street dance featuring Keillor with singer Andra Suchy (SOO'-kee), Salsa del Soul, the Sam Bush Band and the Guy's All-Star Shoe Band.
