ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A performance on the nationally broadcast “Prairie Home Companion” show prompted an apology by Minnesota Public Radio and a warning to member stations about some profane words from a country songwriter.

Robbie Fulks performed live Saturday evening at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul and included a couple of blasphemous words in his song.

MPR issued a language advisory to 670 stations across the country before the show was rebroadcast Sunday. The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1K31bVo ) says it also aired an apology to MPR listeners. It also bleeped the words that were rebroadcast locally on Sunday.
