Ry Cooder

Ry Cooder has been playing music for fifty years, with everybody from The Rolling Stones to Neil Young, and made some pretty impressive albums along the way. He’s found inspiration from gospel and blues, but also some of his own personal revelations. He joins the World Cafe to play some songs from his new album, Prodigal Son, and to talk about how he first started listening to music, how he was inspired by a talent scout in his early career, and how he brings his beliefs into his music.

As many of you know, I like to draw the material for the Something Completely Different shows from the piles and stacks that clutter my household and cause my wife to shake her head in impatience as she pushes and pulls boxes and boxes of CDs from here to there and back again. Thus, some of the shows are a little incomplete; after all, unless you are one of the one tenth of one percent of rich dudes in the world, you just can't buy every CD that comes along, even if it's at a ridiculously low price in a dusty thrift shop.
