Josh Groban Writes Musical Tribute to Anne Litt

Written by

It all started with a rap from local artist Shane Eli, who wrote a tribute to the station and shouted out a bunch of KCRW DJs….but not Anne Litt.

Anne has been on the air during Morning Becomes Eclectic since the Winter Pledge Drive started with Jason Bentley, and he joked about Josh Groban, a known fan of her show, writing a jingle on her behalf as a response. The joke went on all week, including with a tweet from Anne requesting a “classical rap” from the artist, who has sold 24 MILLION albums worldwide in his career.

We all figured it was a longshot and a fun joke until this morning when Jason surprised Anne by playing a musical tribute from Josh on the show!

She was absolutely stunned. And speechless! A first.

It was a beautiful thing. Thank you Josh!
