On Labor Day, September 7, 2009, KCRW will launch Eclectic24 — a new, online, all-music channel blending the collected talents and tastes of all the station’s DJs into a single voice streaming 24 hours a day. The stream will encompass the whole scope of the public radio station’s musical footprint over the last 30 years, integrating musical discoveries from across KCRW’s talented team of DJs — favorite new releases, the best of our rich live performance archives — with the voices of numerous musical icons that have appeared on the station over the years.
What’s special about this new channel is that it combines those fresh ideas with the rich history of our station in a non-stop music stream for our fans worldwide,” said KCRW Music Director and host of Morning Becomes Eclectic Jason Bentley. Eclectic24’s programming curator is current KCRW DJ and former Music Director Chris Douridas, who is tapping into the station’s vast and ever-growing digital library of over 500,000 songs and its exclusive archive of 2000+ live performances and interviews, as well as exclusive KCRW music features like the Guest DJ Project and Today’s Top Tune (KCRW’s free song a day).
The station’s move online in 1998 and early foray into podcasting exposed a huge international audience to our programming and Eclectic24 cements KCRW’s place as a unique and vital resource for independent music discovery.
