David DyeWXPN

Both Lillywhite and Dye seem very excited at the prospect of working together and sharing a broadcasting booth; each cites the other’s enthusiasm for and encyclopedic knowledge of music as reasons this is going to be new ground musically. Dye said in a statement that he “simply can’t wait to pick [Lillywhite’s] brain about every session he’s ever done!”

The premiere Lillywhite Session will feature She & Him, recorded at the legendary NYC Avatar Studios, as well as a discussion about U2’s War. It will air on June 11.

The week before that, World Café’s weekly top five will be a special edition: Lillywhite will talk with Dye on World Café about the top five songs most significant to his career. You can tune into that on June 6.
