Los Angeles County Museum of Art with the incredible Tim Burton exhibit, all the excitement around the arrival of the giant granite boulder that will be know as Levitated Mass, and their participation in Pacific Standard Time, a collaboration of cultural institutions to celebrate the LA art scene between 1945 and 1980.

We were thrilled LACMA director Michael Govan found some time to drop by our studios to tape the Guest DJ Project

We find out that Govan has always been fascinated with the West and his Guest DJ set is a tribute to the city he now calls home, with picks including local bands Viva K and Los Lobos.

He also talks about the melding of music and art.  Here’s an inspiring snippet about the Talking Heads.
