Fridays on the World Cafe, we’ve been joining host Raina Douris for a “Sense of Place” tour of Los Angeles. Today, former frontman of the band Possum Dixon, Rob Zabrecky, talks about working on the band’s final album with Ric Ocasek, and we’ll hear about his career after music as a successful magician. Then, meet Jems. The trio performed live at L.A.’s famed club, Hotel Cafe, a couple months back when World Cafe visited. We’ll hear that set today and find out what convinced the three singers to leave their solo careers behind to work together.
