Monday is Garrison Keillor's 75th birthday. 

While many would take that milestone as a reason to ease off, he definitely isn't. 

On Tuesday, Keillor leaves on his 28-city Love and Comedy Tour. A year after stepping down as host of A Prairie Home Companion, he recently sat for an interview to talk about life, the tour and why he's never listened to the shows with new host Chris Thile.
