It's a very good show.  KCRW is an awesome radio station, too!  So much wonderful music they showcase.  So nice that it's accessible via the web.

This show is the best thing about radio today (especailly considering how lame the NY commerical radio market is). I encourage every human being on the planet to listen to KCRW. Nic Harcourt is cool, but Jason Bentley is AWESOME! He does a show called Metropolis every weeknight on KCRW. Also podcasted. Liza Richardson used to do a show called The Drop that is also really really good for discovering the best of new indie music. And of course, the immortal Garth Trinidad is iconic LA soul with Chocolate City. Viva La KCRW!

ZiP!

I remember when Morning Becomes Eclectic was hosted by Chris Douridas, before Nic Harcourt signed on as musical director of the station...

I also miss Liza Richardson's Man on the Moon. As much as I love Jason Bentley's electronica show, it was great to go sleep to Liza's stuff late nights in high school

i'm a pretty recent listener (discovered the station about a year ago) and didn't know that MBE was hosted by Douridas previously.  was the show much different with him?  did Douridas originate the show?

I grew up in LA so I grew up listening to KCRW for NPR (in the car with my parents) and then as a teen started listening for the music as well...

I don't remember who originated the show but it was less pop/rock oriented and more global music with more jazz as well under chris douridas, don't forget that electronica as we know it know still hadn't burst onto the scene at that point (early 90's). it was still a very "eclectic" mix which is what the show is all about after all.
