KRVS to tape Lafayette artists for World Cafe

Lafayette’s KRVS Radio Acadie, the local NPR affiliate, is providing local musicians an opportunity for national exposure on the renowned radio program World Café.

Six artists will record sets at Cypress Lake Studio on campus at UL this week, with World Cafe staff selecting acts for a monthly showcase distributed to over 200 U.S. public radio stations starting in September.

“We’re thrilled to provide national exposure for area musicians through this partnership,” said KRVS assistant general manager Megan Constantin, highlighting Acadiana’s rich musical community.
