Recently I discovered a new music channel that I would like to share with you:
ECLECTIC 24: LINK
KCRW’s music channel blends different talents and tastes of all of KCRW’s DJs into a single voice streaming 24 hours a day. Always on, no time slots – I just love it!
KCRW is a recognized tastemaker for new music from around the world, with trendsetting hosts such as Music Director Jason Bentley, who features live in-studio sessions and interviews with established and emerging artists on Morning Becomes Eclectic; indie and alternative rock with music supervisor Gary Calamar (Six Feet Under); nu-soul and funk with Garth Trinidad; Raul Campos features dance rhythms and Latin beats; Chris Douridas spotlights the latest singer-songwriters and music in all genres; and more.
KCRW has produced nine CDs, unique collections of live in-studio musical performances, including Sounds Eclectic: The Covers Project which features cover songs by a wide array of artists. “KCRW Presents” and “KCRW.com Presents” promote live performances by bands the station champions in Southern California, San Francisco, New York, and Washington, D.C.
KCRW, a community service of Santa Monica College, is Southern California’s leading National Public Radio affiliate, featuring an eclectic mix of music, news, information and cultural programming. The station boasts one of the nation’s largest arrays of locally- produced, nationally-distributed talk program content. KCRW.com extends the station’s profile globally, with three streams featuring web-exclusive content: all music, all news and the live station simulcast, as well as an extensive list of podcasts. The non-commercial broadcast signal reaches 550,000 listeners weekly and is supported by 55,000 member/subscribers.
