Live from Here initially developed as a result of A Prairie Home Companion, a program hosted by Garrison Keillor, which aired through public radio starting back in March 1974. Thile ended up taking over the hosting responsibilities beginning in 2016, having been a lifelong fan of the show, which initially ran until its hiatus back in 1987. Live from Here now continues its former tradition of being broadcasted via public radio, in addition to being streamed online and in some cases, YouTube.
