David Dye http://wuis.org en World Cafe's July 4th Mixtape http://wuis.org/post/world-cafes-july-4th-mixtape I love mixtapes. Don't we all? If I'm having a party or even a dinner, I meticulously program the music — even though, if it's a good party, no one will hear it because they're all talking!<p>Here's my Fourth of July mixtape for you. No in-studio guest today, just a wide variety of music with the only stipulation that "America," "American" or "U.S." has to be somewhere in the title. It's not even all from the U.S.!

That record contained "Young Folks," a song that became the whistle-along smash of the year. Here, we'll hear performances of several songs from <em>Writer's Block</em> — including "Young Folks," of course.<p><em>This segment originally aired on May 25, 2007.</em> <div class="fullattribution">Copyright 2014 WXPN-FM.

After putting out a couple of singles, He's My Brother, She's My Sister released its debut album last year; it's titled <em>Nobody Dances in This Town</em>.
