World Cafe 30th Anniversary show with host Raina Douris

Join host Raina Douris for another “archive dive” celebrating three decades of musical discovery on the World Cafe. This week, we go back to a session with LCD Soundsystem from 2007, when they had just released Sound of Silver – The widely acclaimed album blends rock and dance music, and frontman James Murphy shared about his own background as a dance DJ. Plus, we’ll hear a memorable interview with the one and only, Barbra Streisand, who talks about the first time she performed “Happy Days Are Here Again,” and why she gets more nervous on stage now than she ever did when starting out.
