WITH 90.1 FM

Hi, World Cafe fans! I just moved to the U.S. from Toronto, Canada, to become World Cafe's new contributing host and producer. Yes, I'm from Drake's hometown. And yes, that's the most frequently asked question since I've been here. But if your musical knowledge north of the 49th parallel doesn't extend past Drizzy and The Six, you're in luck. I brought a pile of musical gifts across the border with me.

The Nobel committee made a bit of a surprising announcement Thursday morning: Bob Dylan was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature for, according to the Swedish Academy, "having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition."

Bob Dylan has won the 2016 Nobel Prize in literature. The prolific musician is the first Nobel winner to have forged a career primarily as a singer-songwriter. What's more, he's also the first American to have won the prize in more than two decades. Not since novelist Toni Morrison won in 1993 has an American claimed the prize.

Join Different Radio at Record Archive in Rochester on Tuesday, September 6th, for a special listening party for Wilco's new album, Schmico. Record Archive has again been chosen to be part of a group of select record stores around the country to preview an up-coming release and provide exclusive prizes to it's customers. To give you an idea, the next closest place to hear this is Scranton, PA! 

Larry Groce On Mountain Stage

Aug 16, 2016

Larry Groce performs on Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, W.Va. It's been a long time since the Mountain Stage host and founder last performed a full set of music on the show — and even longer since he's recorded and released an album. But both of these things have happened in 2016.

Brigid Mae Power On World Cafe

Aug 16, 2016

Brigid Mae Power's work, which is rooted in the acoustic world of traditional Irish tunes, creeps up on you like a fog. The Irish singer has recorded her music — most of which she's released on Bandcamp — in unique locations, such as old churches. Power's chosen locale for her new, self-titled album? Portland, Oregon. (American singer and songwriter Peter Broderick, who'd met her at a gig, convinced her to travel all that way to record.)

Be sure to check the VuHaus link each day for great live performances. On Monday, a very special performance with Bonnie Raitt and Amos Lee you won't want to miss.

  Rick Simpson is taking the night off, and instead of Gumbo Variations, we bring you two sets from this year's Newport Folk Festival: The Violent Femmes followed by Ryan Adams and the Incredible String Dusters. Tune in tonight at 6  PM, only on Different Radio.
