World Cafe Playlist for 03/02/2022

World Cafe 30th Anniversary show with host Raina Douris

The 30th anniversary celebration continues, as World Cafe mines the archives for some of the show’s most memorable moments. Like Elliott Smith’s visit in 1999, between his breakout album XO and Figure 8, the last of his albums released during his lifetime. He performed a beautiful live set. Plus, a more recent interview with comedian Tim Heidecker, who you may not know is also a musician! All that, and a new 30 Under 30 artist is named.
