Minnesota Public Radio, Davies Hall, THE SHOW WITH WITH CHRIS THILE (FORMERLY A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION). The only live music and variety radio show aired nationwide today, The Show with Chris Thile (formerly, A Prairie Home Companion), has been a staple for the 2.6 million fans who have tuned in each Saturday evening over the past 43 seasons. On October 7, 2017 Chris Thile began his second - and first full season - of hosting the show, having been handed over the hosting reins in the fall of 2016. Under Chris' direction, the Saturday evening staple draws new, diverse talent to public radio with a unique blend of musical performances and comedy each week, including a salute to musicians' birthdays, the online Instant Song Request, along with Chris' signature feature, a brand-new Song Of The Week, written and composed by Thile for each live broadcast.
