Why? Because he is so genuine about his love of food and his appreciation for the unique culture in each of the cities he visits. And, because of that, he seems to love life. And I figure …

Dita Von Teese is a burlesque star with a glamorous retro pin up look that is unmistakable. She’s absolutely gorgeous and she showed up to the Guest DJ Project taping in a lace dress, gloves – the whole bit. She had just come from Larry Flynt’s office!
Dita told us she’s a “girl’s girl,” which I got right away. And she’s not a huge fan …

The Lonely Island’s Andy Sandberg Talks Music at KCRW

Posted May 14, 2011 by | 1 Comment | 3,985 views]

Most people who see Andy Sandberg’s name immediately think comedy. But he’s actually one of those rare talented folks who can take comedy and crossover successfully into music. (though Donald Glover claims Lil Wayne is hilarious and Mike Birbiglia says the same about Bob Dylan)

Donald Glover is funny. Whether you love him as his rapper alter ego Childish Gambino, as the star of NBC’s Community or for his work as a writer on 30 Rock, he has a distinct – and hilarious – point of view in his work.
After his Guest DJ Project set, I have a much better idea where it came from and how much music …

From KCRW Intern Monika Scott

Mark Ruffalo has always been someone I’ve heard being described as an “actor’s actor.”  For what it’s worth, I’m not an actor and yet have been a big fan of his for a long time.  The Brothers Bloom remains one of my all time favorites. So I tried to keep my cool when I discovered he was on this …

Actress Busy Philipps gets really personal in her Guest DJ Project set, taking us throughout her life with a handful of sentimental song picks – from high school, to landing her first big acting gig on “Freaks and Geeks”, to marriage and then motherhood.
Like Busy, Tori Amos was the artist that ushered me through the delicate emotions (aka moodswings) of my teenage years. I …
