World Cafe Playlist for 05/14/2024

The B-52’s join host Michaela Majoun with Stephen Kallao

In 1976, the members of The B-52’s shared a flaming volcano cocktail before jamming for the first time. A fitting start for a band known for their flamboyant style and quirky songwriting, and the beginning of a long journey together. On the World Cafe, hear The B-52’s final World Cafe session as part of our Sense of Place: Athens series, where the band reflects on their 45+ year career, as well as live performances of some of their most memorable songs.

Listen to the session here.
