World Cafe

Monday-Saturday from 2-4 a.m., plus a one-hour edition on Sunday at 2 a.m.

Since 1991, World Cafe has been a premier public radio showcase for contemporary music, serving up an eclectic blend that includes blues, rock, world, folk, and alternative country.

Live performances and intimate interviews highlight each day's show. The show's guest roster has included Joni Mitchell, David Bowie, Dave Matthews, Elvis Costello, Robert Plant, Dolly Parton, The Shins, Lucinda Williams, Paul McCartney, Ani DiFranco, Damien Rice, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, R.E.M., Rachael Yamagata, David Byrne, Yo Yo Ma, Billy Joel, Lyle Lovett, Bela Fleck, Moby, Taj Mahal, and Coldplay, among hundreds of others.
