Guests

The band's sound is hard to pin down: It's somewhere between folk and electronica, the words sometimes poetry, sometimes prose.
World Cafe celebrates 50 years of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band with a playlist of some the most enduring and endearing music from the year it was released.
The country singer's startlingly deep voice and the hard-won wisdom in his songwriting belie his young age. Hear a performance and interview.
Original members Debbie Harry, Chris Stein, and drummer Clem Burke are back with a new studio album, Pollinator. Hear an ecstatic performance recorded live at World Cafe.
The alt-country band recorded its major-label debut 20 years ago in a remote studio in Tornillo, Texas. For its new album, Graveyard Whistling, it returned to the very same spot.

Listening to this band's music gives you that warm feeling of spending time with old friends. Hear a performance of songs from 2016's Cardinal, recorded live for World Cafe.
