WFIT Features

Welcome to a week of World Cafe "Side Tracks," where we look back on past guests that came in for a session — not with their best-known band, but with a side project. In each session, we speak to the artists about juggling both acts and the origin story of their "other band." Stream the complete sessions below.

We're going to feature some organ music of J.S. Bach played by Dr. Albert Schweitzer this week.

The physician, humanitarian, theologian, founder of the hospital that bears his name in tropical Africa, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, and anti-nuclear-weapon activist was also a Bach scholar who wrote a two-volume biography of the composer and co-edited a collection of his music early in the last century.

It must be a universal parents' experience to scratch their heads and wonder (or complain) about "kids' music nowadays."

At least six of Johann Sebastian Bach's kids pursued music as their life work, but they didn't particularly follow in their father's footsteps.

We'll hear three pieces by three different Bachs this week -- all very different.

We don't know what dad made of this. See what you think.

Plus vintage vinyl from Scott Boyer & Cowboy, Scott wrote "Please Be With Me " which ended up on Eric's 461 Ocean Blvd., a few years later and much more to sink your teeth into.
