World Cafe Playlist for 04/10/2024

Brigitte Calls Me Baby joins host Raina Douris

When Wes Leavins was a teenager, he started writing letters to Brigitte Bardot. The French actress not only wrote back, but she and Leavins became pen pals. That story inspired the name for the band Leavins now fronts called Brigitte Calls Me Baby. Wes joins us on the World Cafe to talk about forming the rock and roll band and how Elvis helped him refine his performance style.

Listen to the session here.
