Thile Transitioning to Full-Time Host of A Prairie Home Companion

Two interviews under way. Secret, really, but a couple of hints: Sarah and Caleb.

Not often available so they get our attention when they are: Campanella Due two-point.

Hate when an old mandolin is so bizarre we want it. Behold, the 1930s Regal Blue Comet.

And this is what you'd call a vintage Calton Case for an F model mandolin.

Lost and found 1916 Gibson F2 - Need input. Should be interesting. Interesting discussion.
