Chef Tom Colicchio Brings the Rock to KCRW

Written by

Tom Colicchio into my home for so long, there was definitely a part of me that feels like I “know” him. But only in the way you can “know” a TV star.

Through his Guest DJ Project set, I got to know him as a music lover and it showed a whole other side of him. The guy who favors a guitar over a kitchen knife as his tool of choice.

Tom takes us through pivotal moments of his life as a music listener, including his obsession with Led Zeppelin and wowing one of his famous patrons – Robbie Robertson – with his restaurant playlist picks.
