We could live beside the ocean, leave the fire behind

Let’s all move to Santa Monica. In addition to the sand and sea, they also have KCRW, which, for being a community college radio station, gets some huge talent and amazing performances on their live weekday AM show, Morning Becomes Eclectic. I added the podcast to my iPod and have been very pleased with the consistent quality and variety of the show.

Here is a sampling of my favorite performances over the years from the KCRW studios.

You can stream a number of live performances on their website, including stuff by Nada Surf, Broken Social Scene, Neil Young, My Morning Jacket, Ben Harper, Arctic Monkeys, Jackie Greene, Supergrass, Teenage Fanclub, Keane, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Paul Weller, David Gray, and Sigur Ros. And I had to stop myself there. I could add about 50 more artists I like, just from looking at their list.

Sheck it out. You’ll be on your computer for days. Don’t blame me for any cricks.

  • I always wish I could actually listen to kcrw on the radio rather than just their website…
    Glad to see you finally got the Ryan Adams CD!

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
