KCRW Podcasting
KCRW wants you to have music no matter where you sit or stand or jog or drive. There are still a few obstacles in the way of being able to offer you an entire free-form music show, so in the mean time, we’re working directly with bands who are unsigned or independent to bring you their Morning Becomes Eclectic live sessions.

That’s what their newsletter says. I’m quite happy about this, but I’d be happier if they could podcast MBE in its entirety. I’d even pay a little money for it. Sounds like they’re working on it though.

    KCRW is a public radio station in Santa Monica. Their morning show “Morning Bacomes Eclectic” is known as one of the last independent truly influential radio shows around. (That is to say, it’s not owned and programed from afar by Clear Channel.) The show and it’s DJ, Nic Harcourt are credited with discovering such artist as Coldplay, Dido & Norah Jones.

    There was an article a couple of weks ago in the NY Times Magazine about the show. (although I’ve benn a fan for much longer) 🙂

    From their website:

    Morning Becomes Eclectic is committed to a music experience that celebrates innovation, creativity and diversity by combining progressive pop, world beat, jazz, African, reggae, classical and new music. Recognized nationally as a forum for promoting a wide range of music ahead of the curve, the show has become a very attractive whistle stop for both established and emerging artists from around the world.
