Iconic public radio programs are synonymous with their hosts. When you hear "Fresh Air," you think "Terry Gross"; "This American Life" and Ira Glass; "A Prairie Home Companion" and Garrison Keillor.

Well actually, it's now "A Prairie Home Companion" with Chris Thile. Longtime fans of “Prairie Home” recognize Thile as a frequent guest artist as well as a rare substitute host in recent seasons. Outside of “Prairie Home,” Thile is known for his cross-genre mandolin musicianship in bands like Nickel Creek and Punch Brothers.
