Morning Sounds Eclectic Archives

Lately I’ve been listening to the archived shows from Nic Harcourt’s Morning Sounds Eclectic. It’s generally pretty up and lively without all of the heavy east-coast hipster irony of a lot of radio on this side of our collective land mass. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve spent most of the winter digging various shows from that bastion of hip, WFMU, but Spring seems to demand a change of musical wallpaper. So, Harcourt’s my man in the office these days.

My main reason for posting, though, is the archive I discovered of old shows from the early days of MSE. On the show’s webpage, there is a link to the 30th anniversary show, which houses a further link with lots of archived interviews and performances. My favorite thus far is the earliest stuff from the late seventies and through the eighties with Tom Schnabel. Peter Tosh, Fela, Astor Piazzolla, Milton Nascimento: what’s not to love? Highly recommended.

  1. Dave,

    I, too, am a huge fan of KCRW–lots of hip, edgy music that is perfect to beat away those winter doldrums and welcome the spring! If you’re a podcast kind of guy, I highly recommend the MSE podcast and KCRW’s Today’s Top Tune–a free mp3 5 days a week. I’ve found some wonderful songs and bands through KCRW.
