Sometime after his first World Cafe session in 1997, recorded live at Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia, David Bowie came by to chat with David Dye for back-to-back years. Both appearances happened while Bowie was on tour with new records, 2002's Heathen and 2003's Reality.

Now, in the wake of David Bowie's death Sunday, here are both of the sessions, dusted off and fresh out of the archives.
