Today, Robbie Robertson of The Band visits the World Cafe! It’s the 50th anniversary of “Up On Cripple Creek” and the rest of the songs on The Band’s watershed self-titled album, and there’s a new box set to mark the occasion. Plus, Robbie has a brand new solo record, called Sinematic. He joins host Stephen Kallao today, sharing stories about The Band backing Bob Dylan, including getting booed every night of his first electric tour. And we’ll hear about Robbie’s many collaborations with filmmaker Martin Scorsese, from The Last Waltz in 1976, to this year’s film, The Irishman. That’s coming up, on the next 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.
