Henry Rollins by Gary Leonard

Henry Rollins is always a ball of fire on the air during his Saturday show (8-10pm) but when you get him in front of a crowd, he really takes it to the next level. He was headbanging, mouthing every word, and sweating up a storm during his DJ set at Masquerade. You can check out the set list below, as well as photos from …

Park Plaza stairs by Gary Leonard

From the moment you walked in the door of the Park Plaza and were greeted with a tower with gold-painted mannequin parts spelling out the letters KCRW, it was clear Masquerade is not your normal radio benefit event. Or your normal Halloween party for that matter.
Without a doubt, KCRW throws one of the best parties in town but a good chunk of the credit …

Tower Heist Director Brett Ratner is Our Guest DJ

Posted October 28, 2011 by | 2 Comments | 7,656 views]

Brett Ratner is perhaps best known as the director behind the “Rush Hour” series and we found out during his Guest DJ Project set that his early inspiration for the film came from the theme to the 1973 film “Enter the Dragon”, which had Bruce Lee’s screams over urban grooves.
He told us he uses music to inspire actors on his set, including his latest …

What I Got at the Post Office Today with Chuck P

Posted October 28, 2011 by | 0 Comments | 3,657 views]

All of our DJs receive hundreds of CDs a month to consider for airplay. In this regular feature, KCRW DJ Chuck P catalogues his musical bounty from the Post Office each week.
Fall is setting in. LA fall anyway. It’s been between 65 and 85 degrees, so we’ve pretty much rounded the bend. Massive haul this week at the post office as well… and I …

KCRW Premiere: Sea Lions – Grown Up

Posted October 28, 2011 by | 5 Comments | 4,758 views]

Since posting my Artist You Should Know feature on Sea Lions a little over a month ago, I was asked to write their bio for the Slumberland website.  I have now seen my words from both that blog post, and the ensuing bio quoted on several other blogs and Record/CD distribution sites. It feels amazing! Also amazing, is the fact that we’ve been offered …

It’s Been 20 Years? The Best of 1991 Revisited: Ween’s The Pod

Posted October 28, 2011 by | 1 Comment | 4,463 views]

Believe it or not, I’ve never been high in my life.  I’ve never smoked, toked, puffed or inhaled.  When it comes to controlled substances, I’m as straight-laced as they come.  I know, that totally blows my image as someone living the hedonistic “sex & drugs & rock’n’roll” lifestyle of radio DJ, but it’s the truth.  Still, two out of three ain’t bad!
That said, one …

The Belle Brigade in Twilight — I Didn’t Mean It

Posted October 27, 2011 by | 0 Comments | 4,155 views]
breaking dawn

Getting a song on a soundtrack to one of the Twilight movies has launched a few artists to success – or at the very least opened them up to a new (and huge) dedicated audience of fans.
I’ll be honest, I haven’t seen a single movie in the Twilight series. But I’ve listened to all of the soundtracks and they always have some interesting songs. …
