World Cafe Playlist for 03/06/2023

Ron Gallo joins host Raina Douris

No one makes anxiety sound quite as FUN as Ron Gallo. On his new solo album, Foreground Music, the former Toy Soldiers frontman puts his fears and observations in the foreground – Rather than dancing around his anxiety, he dances with it and through it. We’ll hear some of the new music performed before a live World Cafe audience, and Gallo will share the stories behind the record.
