On Labor Day, 9/7, KCRW-FM LA will launch Eclectic24 — a new, online, all-music channel blending the collected talents and tastes of all the station’s DJs into a single voice streaming 24 hours a day. Always on, no time slots, no appointment needed – just the best of KCRW whenever and wherever you want it. The stream will encompass the whole scope of the public radio station’s musical footprint over the last 30 years, integrating musical discoveries from across KCRW’s talented team of DJs — favorite new releases, the best of our rich live performance archives — with the voices of numerous musical icons that have appeared on the station over the years.
The new channel will debut – on air at KCRW 89.9 FM and online at KCRW.com – on Monday, September 7 from 9am to midnight (with a break for All Things Considered from 5 to 7pm) and into the early morning on September 8.
Eclectic24’s programming curator is current KCRW DJ and former Music Director Chris Douridas, who is tapping into the station’s vast and ever-growing digital library of over 500,000 songs and its exclusive archive of 2000+ live performances and interviews, as well as exclusive KCRW music features like the Guest DJ Project and Today’s Top Tune (KCRW’s free song a day).
After the Labor Day premiere, Eclectic24 will be available online, all the time, at www.kcrw.com/eclectic24 and by clicking the ALL MUSIC tab at the top of KCRW’s home page.
