Morning Becomes Eclectic

Morning Becomes Eclectic

KCRW's signature music program features new releases, live performances, and artist interviews hosted by Anthony Valadez & Novena Carmel.

From California to Colombia. Brooklyn to Brazil. 2021 to 1976. Serenades, foot stompers and shoulder shakers.

There’s no doubt 2021 is off to a great start in regards to music. There's been so many releases to help us get through these most interesting times.

Whitney Houston sang backup at 14. Jimi Hendrix performed as the hired guitarist for Little Richard and The Isley Brothers.

If there’s one thing that you can expect on KCRW, it's the support of artists who defy genre and category. Jose James is one of those artists.

Growing up on LA radio, Anthony had a fixation for shouts outs and dedications. Art Laboe connected distant lovers with oldies to young lovers sitting by their radios.

Today on MBE, we've got a special live performance by Arlo Parks that you DO NOT want to miss. Plus, as always, we serve up fresh new tracks from artists we think you'll know.

Arlo Parks is an incredible 20-year-old singer-songwriter, musician, and poet. Arlo Parks joined us for a conversation and an exclusive performance for Morning Becomes Eclectic.

We have something very special for you! Today, we meet at the intersection of flamenco and L.A jazz, care of Rodrigo Y Gabriela, a thrilling acoustic guitar duo out of Mexico City.
