Roger Bennett Tackles His Favorite Songs on KCRW’s Guest DJ Project

Full episode online now at:

http://www.kcrw.com/music/shows/guest-dj-project/roger-bennett

Santa Monica, CA (February 1, 2017) – The latest installment of KCRW’s Guest DJ Project, hosted by Eric J. Lawrence, features Roger “Rog” Bennett co-host of the wildly popular Men in Blazers podcast and weekly show on the NBC Sports Network. While soccer – particularly the English Premier League – is his one true love, music also holds a special place in his heart and the Liverpool native shares favorites from his youth.

For Bennett’s Guest DJ set, he highlights songs that exemplify his fascination with America. “I grew up in Liverpool, England in the 1980s. It was a dark time in a changing England. And in Liverpool there were only two things that mattered: one was football, the other was music. And I loved both. So for this show I tried to choose five tracks from that formative period that ultimately lured me to the United States like a siren tempting ancient mariners onto the rocks.”

Roger Bennett Guest DJ Project Tracklist:

1. Simon and Garfunkel — I Am a Rock

2. Blondie — Hanging on the Telephone

3. Stevie Wonder —  Living For the City

4. Tracy Chapman  — Fast Car

5. Lena Horne – Now!

James says of the album “I’m just trying to be a part of the discussion and encourage people to speak out for equality, to not be afraid to speak out for peace and love. All of us feel afraid at times in these absolutely insane times, but it’s important we speak our minds, cast our votes, and do not give in to fear and hatred.”

Co-produced by Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes) and Jim James, Mills describes the album as “the beautiful sounds of a violent collision between someone’s past and future.”

KCRW and One Colorado Present KT Tunstall With DJ set by Jason Bentley

Free, All Ages Concert in The Courtyard

Saturday, December 10, 2016 at 7:30 PM


Santa Monica, CA (November 29, 2016) – KCRW and One Colorado are pleased to announce a very special evening of music with singer-songwriter KT Tunstall and her full band. KCRW Music Director Jason Bentley will bookend KT’s live set with two DJ sets. The concert is all ages and free to the public with open seating.

Two years ago KT Tunstall pulled the plug on playing music professionally. “I stopped. I gave up. I didn’t want to do it anymore.” Ten years had passed since her multi-platinum debut album, Eye To The Telescope was released, she’d lived a decade in the limelight, released three more critically acclaimed albums, but she was utterly burnt out.


Trading her UK home for Venice Beach, she tucked herself away in a salty-aired sanctuary to quietly immerse herself in the craft of film scoring. Her plan worked at first, but an unyielding urge to pick up the guitar and write riffs echoed in and very quickly took over her plot for solitude.

Fast forward to September 2016 and we have Tunstall’s album, KIN, born-and-bred LA. Fueled by the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Tame Impala, and Devendra Banhart, she sees KIN as the long-awaited, full-blooded follow-up to her debut album years ago.  

“It’s rambunctious, anti-slick, pro-wild, psychedelic emotional pop. I’ve finally cut myself free from a disempowering, disabling search for approval. I’m being honest, and I’m having a load of fun.”

One Colorado is located at 41 Hugus Alley, Pasadena, CA 91103.  For more information, please visit kcrw.com.

Robbie Robertson and Seu Jorge Featured This Week on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic

Monday, November 28 (Robbie Robertson)

Tuesday, November 29 (Seu Jorge)

10:00 AM PST

Santa Monica, CA (November 28, 2016) – Today at 10:00 AM PST, one of the most beloved songwriters and guitarists of his time, Robbie Robertson will visit KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic to talk about the lasting influence of the iconic concert film “The Last Waltz,” which was released 40 years ago. With songs like “The Weight,” “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,” and “Up on Cripple Creek,” he and his partners in The Band fashioned music that has endured for decades, influencing countless musicians. Robertson will also discuss the release of his autobiography “Testimony,” in which he finally tells his own spellbinding story of the band that changed music history, his extraordinary personal journey, and his creative friendships with some of the greatest artists of the last half-century. Check out the interview live on KCRW.com.

On Tuesday, November 29, at 10:00 AM PST, KCRW features Seu Jorge in studio for a short acoustic set and conversation. Jorge is in the midst of playing several sold-out shows in Los Angeles as a special tribute to the late David Bowie. Jorge, one of Brazil’s most talented contemporary singers, rose to international fame in the Wes Anderson film A Life Aquatic. In his acclaimed role as Pelé dos Santos, a singing sailor, Jorge performed several of Bowie’s songs in Portuguese, accompanying himself simply on an acoustic guitar. Jorge’s adaptations of Bowie’s music underscore the breadth and depth of his compositions and have gone on to have a significant cultural impact. Bowie himself commented, “Had Seu Jorge not recorded my songs in Portuguese, I would never have heard this new level of beauty which he has imbued them with.”

This week on MBE continues with Two Door Cinema Club on Wed, November 30 in advance of their show at The Shrine, and James Vincent McMorrow kicks off the month of December with his sexy, soulful, hip hop-inspired sounds on Thursday, December 1st.

Morning Becomes Eclectic, hosted by KCRW Music Director Jason Bentley, is the station’s signature daily music program (9:00 AM – Noon) featuring new releases from emerging and established artists, underappreciated gems, live performances and interviews.

Celebrity Chef Emeril Lagasse Dishes on His Favorite Songs for a Special Thanksgiving Episode of KCRW’s Guest DJ Project

Full episode online now at:

https://www.kcrw.com/music/shows/guest-dj-project/emeril-lagasse

Santa Monica, CA (November 23, 2016) – Emeril Lagasse, one of the most recognizable chefs in the world, joins host Eric J. Lawrence for the current installment of KCRW’s Guest DJ Project. Lagasse, a regional James Beard Award winner who owns 13 restaurants, and is well known for his Food Network shows Emeril Live and Essence of Emeril, serves up some of his favorite tunes just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.

For Lagasse’s Guest DJ set, he highlights a New Orleans’ legend, expresses the importance of music in his everyday life and work, and shares some songs that simply make him happy. He also reveals a personal connection to one of Billy Joel’s biggest hits, “Piano Man.” “The interesting story is that there’s a character in one of the lyrics of the song [now John at the bar is a friend of mine]… and John used to work for me at Commander’s Palace, way before he was with Billy Joel. But what’s amazing about the song is that it’s, for me, it’s very deep, it’s very personal, there’s a lot in there that says a lot about people and places, and just things going on in life then and things that are going on in life now.”

Emeril Lagasse currently stars in the globetrotting Amazon series “Eat the World.”

Emeril Lagasse Guest DJ Project Tracklist:

1. Piano Man – Billy Joel

2. Vertigo – U2
