World Cafe Playlist for 10/20/2020

Nick Lowe joins host Stephen Kallao

Nick Lowe has been writing songs for over 50 years, including classics like “What’s So Funny ‘Bout Peace, Love, and Understanding” and “Cruel To Be Kind.” But in the ‘70s, he was known for his work as a producer – at the upstart label Stiff Records – and it was there that he first started working with a young Elvis Costello. We’ll hear about that era today, as well as his recent work – a new EP with Los Straitjackets, called Lay It On Me Baby. And Nick performs live from his home in London.
