So, what radio listening could be better than the hours of archived programming that KCRW played in celebration of Morning Becomes Eclectic's 30th Anniversary? Not much. I listened to the whole thing, and it was magnificent. There is one thing, though, that surpasses the program - the new archive pages on the special MBE at 30 website. In addition to being able to stream the entire program originally aired on Sept 3rd, you can also listen to interviews, live performances, and view interview & session photographs of artists including Nina Simone, Ravi Shankar, Beck, Jeff Buckley, Radiohead, Tom Waits, and all the other stuff you're familiar with that came AFTER 1998.
Here are a few of the special things KCRW aired on Monday:
Cat Power - (All I Have To Do Is) Dream (Everly Brothers)(Promo)(mp3)
Jeff Buckley - Corpus Christi Carol (Live KCRW 28 Jul 1994)(mp3)
Elliott Smith - Angeles (Live KCRW May 1997)(mp3)
Radiohead - Subterranean Homesick Alien (Live KCRW 4 Apr 1995)(mp3)
