  • Garrison Keillor has been broadcasting the real Prairie Home Companion for 30 years.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): While the movie takes place as a part of a fictional commercial radio station, WLT, the musicians music stands are emblazoned with the letters MPR which stands for Minnesota Public Radio from whence the actual program airs.
  • Garrison Keillor got the name Lola for Lindsay Lohan's character from the song "Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets" after Lohan successfully lobbied for a place in the film, even though there was no part written for her in the original script.
  • The name for the character, Chuck Akers, comes from the name Garrison Keillor's friend Chet Atkins uses when he checks into hotel rooms
