Tom Keith passed away Sunday.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune has a lengthy article on the passing of Keith. It recounts Keith’s role as an FX man and VO artist for “The Prairie Home Companion” along with other Minnesota Public Radio productions such as “The Morning Show.”

The article extensively quotes Garrison Keillor, who had worked with Keith since 1976. Keillor described Keith as “one of radio’s great clowns.”

“A quirky, iconic, uniquely Minnesotan voice — and creator of an astounding array of captivating, hilarious, bawdy sounds — has fallen silent,” the newspaper reported.

Keith was 64.
