Billy Bragg

Grab your walkman, because World Cafe is going back to 1988! It's the year that introduced us to Rain Man and The Wonder Years, the Iran-Contra Affair and The War on Drugs, and clothes that are now in fashion again. And the music? That's what we'll hear today. Host Stephen Kallao spins 30 year-old tracks from U2, Edie Brickell, and R.E.M., Crowded House, Billy Bragg, and many more. Hear the sounds of 1988, on the next World Cafe.

This week’s episode of Mountain Stage with Larry Groce marks the show’s first trip to the steel city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. You’ll hear a set from respected singers and songwriters Billy Bragg and Joe Henry, whose latest album celebrates the wide-open romance of the American railroad. You’ll also hear from acoustic folk-blues master Chris Smither, newcomer Kia Kater, atmospheric chamber folk from LAU, and Houston-based singer-songwriter Robert Ellis.
