The long-running public radio show “A Prairie Home Companion” is closely associated with Garrison Keillor, the writer and performer who has hosted the show since it first aired in 1974. But recently the show did something it hasn’t done in decades: it used a guest host. The singer-songwriter and fiddle player Sara Watkins joins us to talk about stepping into the role.

"A Prairie Home Companion" airs Saturdays at 6PM on 93.9 FM and AM 820 and again on Sundays at 11AM on AM 820.

Guests:
