I live in Texas and have discovered a very interesting phenomenon: the Lawrence Welk Show is aired on the local PBS station at the same time as Prairie Home Companion is and if you watch the Welk show while listening to PHC, sometimes the actions on TV will synchronize with your show. It's amazing! Is this synchronization some great cosmic coincidence?

Dear Alida,

I'll bet that if you listened to the show while watching a flock of chickens, there would be moments when the birds seemed to be lip-synching. There are coincidences more amazing than this.
