Yo La Tengo - live on WXPN World Cafe - 30 min

Recorded live in Philadelphia, PA 10/13/00


Digitally-recorded FM master; great sound. The originally scheduled broadcast at 2pm was pre-empted for fundraising, I caught this in the "rerun" slot at 2am. World Cafe shows are prerecorded; 10/13 was the broadcast date, I suspect this was taped on or about 9/15/00 when YLT were in Philadelphia to play a show at the Trocadero.

"Dreaming" is really nice. Some good bits in the interview portion: James browsing the station's record collection; what happens if you overplay favorite records; suddenly getting "singer-songwriter"-type interview questions after the new album; playing "songbook challenge" with Ray Davies (James: "he picked the wrong band to mess with").
