Chris Douridas recorded an exclusive interview with Leonard Cohen just after his 82nd birthday.

KCRW's Chris Douridas sat down nearly 20 years ago with Sir George Martin, the legendary producer and arranger for the Beatles. Martin passed away at the age of 90 and we share that special interview from our archives to celebrate his legacy.

Chris Douridas remembers David Bowie, revisiting a conversation with the iconic musician from February 1997.

KCRW DJ Chris Douridas pays tribute to the late jazz vocalist Little Jimmy Scott.

Lou Reed joins Chris Douridas for Morning Becomes Eclectic on February 18, 1994.

Ben Howard earned critical praise early on for his compelling live shows in and around London and his native Devonshire. The ever-growing word of mouth goodwill caught the attention of Island Records, which won over Howard due to the legacy there forged by a couple of his musical heroes - John Martyn and Nick Drake. His debut release, Every Kingdom, has achieved gold status in the UK and is gaining ground in the US, as evidenced by his back-to-back sold out shows this week at the Troubadour, his first appearances ever on the West Coast. Ben's appearance on KCRW marks his LA radio performance debut.

Nicolas Jaar talks about the influence of John Cage (Jaar's mother was part of Merce Cuningham's dance troupe) and the loudness of silence in his life. He pointed out that the first loud silence he experienced as a child was the six year absence of his father.
