WITH Welcomes Chris Thile & Live From Here to our Saturday!

Devin Peddie

Saturday night, APM's Live From Here, starring Chris Thile, airs on WITH at 6PM. 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. Thile is a MacArthur Genius Grant winner and Mandolin master. He got his start at age 8 when he launched Nickel Creekwith Sara and Sean Watkins. Currently, he is in the Punch Brothers, who have performed in Ithaca and at other venues in the region. 

The WITH schedule is changing in part due to the program "Radio Unleashed" going out of production in April, leaving a whole in the schedule. American Routes, hosted by Nick Spitzer, takes over the 6PM to 8PM slot on Sunday evenings. In the near future, Live From Here will also air on our sister station, WEOS in Geneva.

I was born in Fairmont, West Virginia, and grew up mostly in and around the Rochester area. I got my radio start at WBKT at Brockport High school as a sophomore, and was its station manager in my senior year in high school. I had caught the radio & TV bug. While in high school, I started working for the local commercial station in town (WWBK/WJBT). While attending SUNY Brockport, I helped build WBSU-FM, and started as an intern for WXXI-TV. I started working for WXXI in the broadcast operations area, and eventually became an online television editor. In 1985, I took a position at WHYY in Philadelphia in their engineering department, working primarily as a video editor, but also provided audio support for TV productions and for some radio productions, including NPR's Fresh Air.
