Mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile recently took over this show from longtime host Garrison Keillor. Each week, Chris features incredible live performances from an array of special musical guests — some known by all, and some who soon will be — along with a bit of comedy and spoken word, plus Chris will compose and perform a unique new song each week. “I grew up with the show, says Chris. “I take this opportunity, this job, immensely seriously and with great awe.”

Garrison Keillor commented “Chris is my man. … He is, I think, the great bluegrass performer of our time and he is a beautiful jazz player. There just isn’t anything he can’t do — and he is very enthusiastic about live radio.”
