raphaels wideOne of the most important voices in R&B today, Raphael Saadiq is host Stephen Kallao’s guest. His new record is named after his brother who died of a heroin overdose, Jimmy Lee, and on it, Saadiq tackles some dark parts of his past. We’ll hear about the making of the album, as well as stories from his behind-the-scenes work, like producing songs for D’Angelo, Solange Knowles, John Legend, and more. Plus, how he ended up on tour hanging out with Prince. It’s Raphael Saadiq, on this encore edition of the World Cafe.

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