Upcoming Live Performances on MORNING BECOMES ECLECTIC with host JASON BENTLEY

Monday, August 6, Almost a decade ago, KCRW began playing songs by a little known singer-songwriter named Jesca Hoop. Her latest album is one of her catchiest yet and we’re thrilled to have her back in the studio on Morning Becomes Eclectic at 11:15am.
