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.

Meet Nick Lopez! I first met Nick at one of our many events at the street team table, he was just a really level-headed chill dude. The more I talked to Nick the more I realized he was the type of person that really epitomizes the KCRW way of life… relaxed, easy going, in tune with nature and his surroundings, and helpful as ever. …

She’s one of the most dedicated volunteers I’ve seen at KCRW. Her exuberant personality helps relieve some of the deadline-induced stress of the newsroom, and she also knows about all the web series worth watching. She should be volunteer of the century, but KCRW won’t let me nominate her for that, …

This October it is an honor to recognize Andrew Steely. Sure, you might say, hey.. Andrew is a staff member, not a volunteer. What gives?

Honestly though, Andrew is one of the most humble, down to earth, fun loving dudes you’ll find. Always helpful, …
