The only live music and variety show aired nationwide today, A Prairie Home Companion is a public radio staple. Each show features a mix of well-known and up-and-coming musicians, humor with sketch comedy and spoken word, plus an original 'Song of the Week' composed by host Chris Thile, who was hand-selected by former host Garrison Keillor—"the best idea I've had since Powdermilk Biscuits." A multiple Grammy Award-winner, MacArthur Fellow and a member of Punch Brothers and Nickel Creek, Thile is a mandolin virtuoso, composer and vocalist.
