Dwight Yoakam, The Very Best, Boxed In and More on KCRW This Week

Upcoming Live Performances on MORNING BECOMES ECLECTIC with host JASON BENTLEY

Monday, July 20, Grammy award-winning songwriter Dwight Yoakam has sold more than 25 million records. He’s kept his sound fresh by embracing a wider range of sounds on recent recordings, including his latest Second Hand Heart, and we are happy to welcome him back into our studio in advance of his performance as part of KCRW’s Sound In Focus series.

Wednesday, July 22, The Very Best is led by a Swedish-Malawian duo who combine African pop with funk and house grooves for highly danceable, exuberant music. They stopped by KCRW at the end of their North American tour for a live set.

Thursday, July 23, Boxed In’s debut album has been a KCRW favorite for months now and we welcome the London-based quartet — led by producer/songwriter Oli Bayston — into our studio for a live session in advance of the band’s performance as part of the Sound in Focus series.

Monday, July 27, Penguin Prison continues to evoke ‘80’s synth pop on his latest album and he’ll bring the dance party into our studio for a live session.
