nick lowe wideNick Lowe has been writing songs for over 50 years, including classics like “What's So Funny ‘Bout Peace, Love, and Understanding” and “Cruel to Be Kind.” But in the ‘70s, he was known for his work as a producer – at the upstart label Stiff Records – and it was there that he first started working with a young Elvis Costello. We’ll hear about that era today, as well as his recent work – a new EP with Los Straitjackets, called Lay It on Me Baby. And Nick performs live from his home in London. That’s coming up, on the next World Cafe with host Stephen Kallao.

World Cafe airs weekdays at 2:00 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / streaming @ / Listen live on-the-go with the FREE KRCB Mobile App! Download it today for your favorite mobile device.
