Here is what to listen for on World Cafe this week:
Monday, March 12th – Siddhartha Khosla
The hit NBC TV show “This Is Us” wraps up its second season Tuesday night. We talk to the guy who underscores the drama - the show’s composer. He’s also the frontman of the indie band Goldspot. His name is Siddhartha Khosla, and he’s our guest on Monday's World Cafe.
Tuesday March 13th – Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have been making music for 20 years, but you won’t hear them talking about any anniversaries. After a five year hiatus, the band returns to form on their new album. Wrong Creatures.
Wednesday, March 14th – ENCORE: Brandi Carlile
Brandi Carlile performs from new album By the Way, I Forgive You with a full band on Wednesday's World Cafe. Plus she talks about how she and her wife Catherine conceived their first child, and how Dolly Parton, Adele and Barack Obama helped her celebrate a big anniversary.
Thursday, March 15th – Noel Gallagher
It's a full hour with Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, an 11 piece ensemble that includes a full brass section and even a scissors player. The band performs live, and frontman Noel reflects on the evolution of his sound since his days writing hits and playing guitar in Oasis, plus how he's making sure his own kids have a different childhood than Noel and his famously feuding brother Liam had.
Friday, March 16th – ENCORE: Margo Price
On Margo Price’s first album, 2016’s Midwest Farmer’s Daughter, she shared incredibly personal stories of pawning her wedding ring, spending a weekend in jail and losing a child.
