Actress Rashida Jones is Our Guest DJ

Posted March 8, 2011 by | 0 Comments | 5,814 views]

Rashida Jones is one of my favorite comedic actresses – from “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation” to “I Love You, Man” (a movie I appreciate more and more as my boyfriend attempts to turn me into a Rush fan).  But, digging into her music tastes, it’s hard to ignore that Rashida is also the daughter of one of the most influential men in …

From KCRW DJ Garth Trinidad:
I love it when people turn me on to music. It’s a huge help when fans, listeners, and friends present me with something they themselves really dig. It’s a kind and very personal gesture that I truly appreciate.
