KCRW Gives Away 1,000th Free Song

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Those who over the years that have diligently kept their podcast subscription current with KCRW since they launched the free downloadable Today's Top Tune have built quite the arsenal of good music. It started with Alexi Murdoch in April 2006 and has brought us Lilly Allen, Justice, Fleet Foxes and a lot more that we've enjoyed. Today, in celebration of their 1,000 free tune giveaway, Spoon's “Something to Look Forward To" is available for download. Cold War Kids’ singer Nathan Willett's solo version of “Cryptomnesia” will be featured on Wednesday and Thursday will see a song by Jose James.
