Public Radio Music Day On World Cafe

It’s Public Radio Music Day, where public radio music stations of all kinds celebrate their unique musical genres and the musicians who make it. And, as we discovered while doing some crate digging here at World Cafe, it’s a love that goes both ways. We found so many songs that mention the radio that we were able to fill a whole show.
