We’re seeing a new side of Colin Hanks as he guest stars in the sixth season of Showtime’s hit show “Dexter” and we thought it was a good time to sit down with the well-known music lover and find out which 5 songs mean the most to him as part of KCRW’s Guest DJ Project.

When he walked in the studio, it was hard not to notice the Tower Records keychain hanging from his pocket. We later found out he is working on a documentary about the rise and fall of the chain.

Colin’s passion for music is obvious and he shares the songs he uses for inspiration or just a pure burst of rock ‘n’ roll energy.  Here’s a highlight:
