I always thought Guy’s All Star Shoe Band never got enough credit for the success of A Prairie Home Companion.
The genius of Rich Dworsky cannot be overstated.
So it’s good news that Dworsky is remaining with the show now that Garrison Keillor has retired. He’ll be music director of an entirely new band, new host Chris Thile has announced, according to Current.

About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
