Lauren Tyler has her own blend of style and personality which grows on you to a point that you’re not quite sure what you did before you met her. Does anyone around here remember what KCRW was like before Lauren came to the office? She’s got a real spark about her, with all the warmth, sass, and skepticism you can hope for and appreciate.

She should be volunteer of the century, but KCRW won’t let me nominate her for that, …
