The Handsome Family on World Cafe, tonight at 8 on WCBE
On this episode of the World Cafe, The Handsome Family join host David Dye in the studio. Brett Sparks first convinced his wife, fiction writer Rennie Sparks, to write lyrics for his music in 1993, launching the duo’s unusual brand of Americana. Wilderness is their new concept album inspired by the animal kingdom. We'll hear a live performance tonight, plus Rennie sticks around as a guest DJ, spinning some of her favorite songs about animals. The spotlight's on The Handsome Family, tonight at 8 on WCBE!
