KCRW was an early supporter of Beck back in '93 and this week we’re celebrating the launch of our brand new website with a flashback to some of our favorite sessions over the years. Music Director Chris Douridas invited Beck to perform live within weeks of his first airplay and "MTV Makes Me Want to Smoke Crack" was a standout that you can grab as Today’s Top Tune.

The Districts: Nighttime Girls A band's third album is always telling; it's a time where they are able to stretch out and expand their sound (or step into a new direction).

Meiko: Back In The Game Meiko is a staple in the Los Angeles music scene, and her songs are a natural fit for TV shows and film. When asked about "Back In The Game", Meiko says, “It’s a ‘going-out’ anthem for the broken-hearted. You know, brush your knees off, get back in there, and kick some ass!” Atta Girl!
