Sad news today: Tom Keith, longtime sound-effects wizard on A Prairie Home Companion, passed away suddenly on Sunday.

In addition to his many years on PHC, Keith was co-host of The Morning Show on Minnesota Public Radio until his retirement from the show in 2008.

A little of his work can be heard on this clip from a 1992 Halloween show, which seems an apt excerpt for today. He’ll be greatly missed, on the show and off.
