Live from Here with Chris Thile is a Saturday-night destination for audiences everywhere. This variety show features a unique blend of musical performances, comedy and audience interaction. Acclaimed musician and songwriter Chris Thile welcomes a wide range of well-known and up-and-coming talent to share the stage and create a beautiful listening experience.

Chris has built on the legacy ... with a new level of energy and talent providing an appeal to new listeners. I'm pleased with how well he channels the energy from the live audience into an engaging radio show. – Fred Vigeant, WITF

The Post-Prairie period:

Live Saturdays 5-7 PM.

Here at NPR Illinois, we've been concerned we might have to drop some programs due to the ongoing budget impasse.
