Morning Becomes Eclectic playlist, August 30, 2023

Ahead of the 4th annual West Adams Block Party happening this Sunday Sept. 3, one of the headliners D Smoke hits MBE for a rousing guest DJ set. The philanthropist, entrepreneur, GRAMMY nominated multi-instrumentalist, and smooth-as-silk emcee brings a wide breadth of sonic styles — from System Of A Down to Chopin. Highlights include: The former educator sharing deeps thoughts on how to overhaul the American education system, the long game happy ending to the story of his mother, Jackie Gouché, having to turn down an opportunity to tour with Stevie Wonder, and Novena, Anthony and D Smoke all sing/shouting along to “Chop Suey!” live on air. D Smoke is sure to pull out all of the stops this weekend during the FREE community event, playing cuts from his 2020 debut LP Black Habits and beyond. Plus, sets from Georgia Anne Muldrow, Arrested Development, and (hey now!) KCRW DJs Novena Carmel and Anthony Valadez.
