New KCRW Web Feature Spotlights 5 Things to Check Out

LAist needs your reader support
You can power our reporters and help keep us independent with a donation today during our June Member drive.

It's a 140-character, bullet point list, soundbite world we live in, and while many of us turn to 89.9 KCRW for long sets of good music or informative programming, they're now offering up a way to get "a bite-sized glimpse into some of their favorite things." Personalities and behind-the-sceners at the Santa Monica College-based NPR station are sharing a list a week of 5 Things. Already in the archive are DJ Dan Wilcox's 5 Best Places to Expose Your Kids to Music, DJ Tom Schnabel's 5 Bands that Defined surf culture in LA, and DJ Jason Bentley's Top 5 Condiments (Sriracha, FTW!). And now that the station's Summer Pledge Drive is done, look for more forthcoming 5-ers from your favorites.
