World Cafe on KRVS

Monday-Thursday 9:00-11:00 AM
  • Hosted by David Dye

Since 1991, World Cafe has showcased contemporary music, serving up an eclectic blend of blues, rock, folk and alternative country. David Dye hosts the program from member station WXPN in Philadelphia. Each show centers on David's "performance chat" with a featured artist or band.

Esmé Patterson On World Cafe

Jul 22, 2016

Originally from Colorado and part of the same singer-songwriter scene that gave us Nathaniel Rateliff, Esmé Patterson was initially part of the folk band Paper Bird with her sister. Patterson has increasingly let loose her inner rocker on each new solo album — particularly on her third record, released this past June, titled We Were Wild.
