Elvis Costello http://www.kunc.org en Elvis Costello And The Roots On World Cafe http://www.kunc.org/post/elvis-costello-and-roots-world-cafe In hour one of Tuesday's installment of <em>World Cafe</em>, we talk with <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/15045892/elvis-costello" target="_blank">Elvis Costello</a> and <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/15121130/the-roots" target="_blank">The Roots</a>' powerhouse drummer Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson about how they met and came to utilize hip-hop techniques to make a non-hip-hop record. Costello and The Roots unveiled their collaborative album <em>Wise Up Ghost</em> last week — it's a project they'd made in semi-secrecy.<p>Both artists have rich histories as thriving collaborators.

To get all this, however, you are asked to pay $225. Costello seems to be shocked. On a website, he declares, "we are unable to recommend this lovely item as the price appears to be either a misprint or a satire."
