KCRW picks up Henry Rollins


Not long after Entercom took Indie 103.1 LA to online only, DJ Henry Rollins will move to NPR affiliate KCRW-FM in that market Saturdays from 6 to 8 p.m., starting March 7, according to the LA Times: “When Entravision folded Indie 103 last month, Rollins diligently followed other DJs such as Joe Escalante and Jose Galvan to the Web version of the radio station, but it always seemed like a stop-gap measure. The Black Flag rager-singer isn’t anti-technology — he deejayed from his iPod for MOCA’s Target Video night last summer — but, as he writes on his website in an announcement for the new show, "the pre-tape thing was better than nothing but live is best." His show won’t have an official name (KCRW only has "Morning Becomes Eclectic" as an officially titled show), but he’ll have a DJ page on KCRW.com where his audience can send him e-mails.”
