They say it's who you know. They also say, you have to be at the right place at the right time. For many KCRW DJs the "who" to know is Chris Douridas and the right place is standing next to him.

A chance meeting at a party with the host of Morning Becomes Eclectic, set Anne Litt down a path that would eventually lead to her hosting "Weekend Becomes Eclectic."

Now the host of "The A-Track" (Saturdays & Sundays, 3pm-5pm), which evolved from WBE, Litt took some time out to answer a few questions during this 30th anniversary week of MBE. She gives us a little bit on quality problems, sailing and world capitals.

LAist: You host The A Track, which evolved from Weekend Becomes Eclectic. How are the two shows different and how are they similar? Also, tell us about how WBE compared to MBE.

Litt: When we initially launched the music channel on KCRW.com, I was on five days a week, so it really didn’t make sense to call it Weekend Becomes Eclectic.

But the content hasn’t changed at all -- I still love to play a mix of the newest tracks and some of my old favorites. I continue to cross genres and find the thread that connects eras and musical styles.

The A-Track takes the same spirit of the eclectic format and tailors it for a weekend audience. It’s probably a little more pop than MBE because people are looking for a different musical experience during afternoons on the weekend than they are at 10am on a Tuesday. Also we have different musical touchstones that inform our shows.
