The World Cafe is a radio show produced by WXPN in Philadelphia, PA, the radio station that pioneered the AAA radio format. World Cafe plays a variety of singer/songwriter music, blues, swing, etc. Each show includes live interviews with various artists as well as live performances of some of their songs. On other occasions, an artist will be the "Guest DJ", playing whatever music has influenced him/her/them, commenting about why they like the various songs they play.

Live at the World Cafe is a series of albums for which only a fixed number are manufactured. When they are gone, they are gone. They are originally available only through the radio station for contributors. After some period of time, the remaining copies are sold in various local music stores.
