Garrison Keillor, the former host of A Prairie Home Companion, turns 75 on Monday.

But neither age nor retirement seem to have slowed him down. The day after his birthday, he'll head off on a 28-city tour.

Before departing, Keillor sat down with MPR News' Euan Kerr to talk about what he's working on these days — and what he thinks of the new version of the radio show he left behind.
