World Cafe Playlist for 12/04/2023

Geddy Lee joins host Stephen Kallao

On the World Cafe, Rush frontman and bassist Geddy Lee joins us to talk about his new memoir, “My Effin’ Life.” From the time he was booted out of Rush early on, to nearly scrapping their biggest hit, “Tom Sawyer”, Lee will tell stories from the book, including why he devoted a chapter to his parents, who were both holocaust survivors that met in a prison camp during World War II.

Listen to the session here.
