You can hear World Cafe each Weeknight at 10. Here’s the Programming scheduled for this week:
Monday, January 8th, 2024 – Stephen Sanchez
Stephen Sanchez became a sensation thanks to a song that sounded like it came straight from the 1950’s, called “Until I Found You”. But Sanchez wasn’t chasing a trend, he was playing the style of music he fell in love with as a child. Stephen Sanchez joins World Cafe to talk about his debut album, Angel Face, and how a questionable guitar purchase changed his life.
Tuesday, January 9th, 2024 – Encore: Weyes Blood
Weyes Blood wanted to look past the “numbers and algorithms” of everyday life in search of something more human on her 2022 album And in the Darkness, Heart Aglow. She talks about its hopeful, human message and how she went from making dissonant noise rock to rich, melodic ballads, next time on an encore World Cafe.
Wednesday, January 10th, 2024 – Alana Springsteen
Rising country star Alana Springsteen has known the guitar was for her since her grandfather gave her one at 7 years old. Now, like the title of her debut major label album, she’s Twenty Something, and directing other guitarists like Chris Stapleton, who guests on one of her songs. Alana Springsteen performs live on the next World Cafe.
Thursday, January 11th, 2024 – Shakey Graves
When Shakey Graves found himself with a rejected pile of music he’d scored for a film, he decided to transform it into something new. On his latest album, Movie of the Week, the musician let his creativity run amok, creating songs to score different imaginary films. Shakey Graves joins us on the next World Cafe to talk about the album, plus how he used A.I. to share alternate tracks and B-sides that didn’t make the final cut.
Friday, January 12th, 2024 – Dogstar
More than twenty years after going on hiatus, Dogstar is back. But the band, made up of Keanu Reeves, Rob Mailhouse and Bret Domrose, never really lost touch. Keanu, Rob, and Bret talk about reuniting, their friendship, and how the band all started…in a supermarket. Plus, you’ll hear songs from Dogstar’s latest album, Somewhere Between the Power Lines and Palm Trees, on the next World Cafe.
