KCRW, a popular public radio station based in Los Angeles, is no stranger to podcasting. The station has been podcasting a number of shows since March 1, 2005. Among the roster of 22 shows available on demand from their website and iTunes podcast directory are news (“To the Point”), political (“Left, Right & Center”, “The Politics of Culture”), cultural (Bookworm”, “Good Food”) and entertainment (“Back Channels”, “Martini Shot”) shows. With podcasting, users can subscribe to their favorite programs and listen to them at more convenient times. Selected podcasts can be automatically downloaded and synched to music players.
Now, live sessions from “Morning Becomes Eclectic” are the latetest addition to KCRW’s podcast lineup. Nic Harcourt, Music Director for the station and host of the show which airs weekdays from 9AM to 12PM says KCRW had several requests to make their music programming available for podcasting. In response, live sessions featuring performances and interviews with independent and unsigned artists will be available for podcasting for free, starting with last week’s guests, Goldspot.
Each session will be offered for two weeks. Past “Morning Becomes Eclectic” guests include Robert Plant, Shelby Lynne and Doves. KCRW has over 300,000 podcast subscribers per week.
