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
"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").
