Alina Simone: A Tragic-comic Journey Through the Indie Rock World
Eric J. Lawrence has a musical mind unlike any other. As KCRW's Music Librarian, his encyclopedic knowledge of music ranges from the latest acts to classic TV themes and other criminally overlooked tunes, hidden gems, and guilty pleasures. Indiana-born and LA-raised EJL, as he is affectionately known, scours all genres, from psychedelic rock to glitchy electronica, in search of the most compelling tracks to share with the listeners on his weekly Sunday night show (12a to 3am).
