Listen to a continuous stream of the three most recent shows.

This week on Conversations from the World Cafe, David Crosby joins host David Dye in the studio. David Crosby recently released his 4th solo album Croz – it is his first in over 20 years. For the new disc he worked with his son James Raymond, finding a collaboration as sympathetic to his music sensibilities as his work with The Byrds and CSNY. We will talk about the old days, including his first solo album, 1971’s If I Could Only Remember My Name, which came out after the sudden death of his girlfriend Christine Hinton, as well as the new disc. Plus, Graham Nash. Last year Graham Nash published his autobiography Wild Tales: A Rock & Roll Life. It details his amazing music career, from growing up in poor in England, to first finding fame with The Hollies, and then later leaving the UK in 1968 to embrace his artistic connection with David Crosby and Stephen Stills. Nash details his career, including what his longtime collaboration and friendship with Crosby has meant to him. That’s this week on Conversations from the World Cafe!

May 9, 2014 - This week on Conversations from the World Cafe, Broken Bells join host David Dye. Shins frontman James Mercer and producer Brian Burton, also known as Danger Mouse, first met in 2004. At the time, The Shins had recently released their critically acclaimed second album Chutes Too Narrow, and Brian Burton had just put out his famed mash up The Grey Album and began working with his Gnarls Barkley collaborator Cee-lo Green. It took a few years for Mercer and Burton to find the time to work together, but in 2010, the pair released their first album as Broken Bells. In February they returned with their second disc After the Disco. Between the title and the sound of the record, some fans have wondered if the duo really love disco. They’ll explain their feelings about it in our interview as well as talk about how this projects compares to their other work outside of Broken Bells. That and more this week on Conversations from the World Cafe!
