Guests

Ruby, Macy Gray's latest album, brings many similarities to her last, The Id. It's funny and funky, never saccharine, always uplifting.
Her songs are poetic and political, steeped in both punk and cabaret, and sung in a voice that blends Eartha Kitt's cool with Nina Simone's fury.
Late Show bandleader Jon Batiste, New Yorker writer Briana Younger and NPR Music's Rodney Carmichael join World Cafe for a spirited conversation on the black creators shaping the future of music.
BBC Radio Scotland presenter, music journalist and author Nicola Meighan takes us around the city during our Sense Of Place visit.
Ondara grew up in Nairobi, Kenya with big dreams of becoming a musician in the U.S. Hear a studio performance of songs from his debut album, Tales Of America.
Get a sampler of the Melbourne-based singer's forthcoming record that is personal, intimate and beautiful.
It's been 40 years since Steve Forbert released his debut album, Alive on Arrival, and he's marked the occasion with a new album and a new memoir.
