Cure make Top 10 of 2008 list

Cure on NPR's World Cafe today

Setlist: Push, The Perfect Boy, The Only One, RS Interview, The End of the World, Just Like Heaven, Boys Don't Cry.

Audio - Full Cure segment (Thanks J.)
Interview - Transcription (Thanks V)

The Cure recorded a World Cafe session on May 10th in Philadelphia, and it will air this afternoon. The easiest way for most of us to hear it will be to listen to WXPN. The show airs from 2-4pm eastern, 1-3pm central, noon-2pm mountain and 11am-1pm pacific. You can also listen to the show on your local NPR station. But be sure to check if/when your station carries the World Cafe show.
If you missed it, you can catch it again at 1-3am eastern, midnight-2am central, 11pm-1am mountain, 10pm-midnight pacific.

Update: Oh well, so much for the rumors of it being recorded in LA this week. This interview and performance was recorded on May 10th, after the Philadelphia 4Tour show, and has already been posted online. (Thanks Kate)

Update 2: Looks like the broadcast is slightly different than what was posted online.
