John Prine

Via American Routes

For Volume 2 of our Guilty Pleasures series, we revel in the freedom to create an eclectic flow—during these days of algorithmic radio—from Lotte Lenya singing “Mack the Knife” to a Japanese take on Archie Bell and the Drells’ “Tighten Up.” We look toward summer with music from the Kinks and John Prine, and cool down with tunes by Ramsey Lewis and Oscar Brown, Jr. Plus some listener-requested guilty pleasures from Bob Marley to Bonnie Raitt. Sit back, tune in, and indulge guilt-free!

On the next World Cafe John Prine performs live and talks about his early days as a mailman, playing Chicago’s open mic nights, and working with Nashville’s finest today.

John Prine talks with Terry about his life and music. His new album, The Tree of Forgiveness, is his first in 13 years.  Prine’s first album came out in 1971, when he was just 24 and working as a mailman.  Several of those songs became classics, including Angel from Montgomery, Sam Stone and Paradise.
