    Default Shame on KCRW

    I am pissed off that KCRW, a local NPR station in Santa Monica California fired Tricia Halloran, the host of Brave New World. Brave New World was a how on Saturday nights from midnight to 2:00AM and was one of the few outlets that played indie rock music on the radio. I read about it in the Los Angeles Times today in the Calendar section. I hope that station will keep the show, even with a different host. Did anyone else ever listen to that show? I tried to hear it but I often go ot on Saturday nights.

    I hosted that show a bunch of times. She was one of the few DJ's at night that knew her stuff. What a shame. She must have pissed of Ruth Seymour.

    They're dropping "Brave New World."

    And shouldn't you have better things to do on Saturday nights from 12-2AM?

    Ruth Seymour was rude in the LA Times article. She said the firings were part of "show business." I heard she is a real bitch from people who know her. I wonder if any of the new shows will play indie rock or similar music to what Tricia Halloran played.

    Wednesday: Jeremy Sole, Branches
    Thursday: Jason Eldredge, Accidental Rhythm
    Friday: Mathieu Schreyer, On the Corner
    Saturday: Dan Wilcox, Digging for Fire
    Sunday: Aaron Byrd, Pangea
    Sunday (3am - 6am): Swingshift becomes THE LAB. With revolving hosts - Andrea Canter, Jason Kramer and introducing Morgan Rhodes

    KCRW revises late-night roster

    Intended as an incubator for fresh talent, late-night programming at KCRW-FM (89.9) is being remodeled to bring in new voices.

    Beginning today, Jeremy Sole, Dan Wilcox, Aaron Byrd and Morgan Rhodes will join the public radio station's post-midnight, pre-dawn schedule. Remaining in the lineup are Eric J. Lawrence, Thomas Golubic, Jason Eldredge and Mathieu Schreyer.

    Dropped from the Santa Monica-based outlet were Scott Silva, host of "Connections" on Wednesdays from midnight to 3 a.m.; Kevin Ponthier, host of "Let's Get Lost" on Thursdays from midnight to 3 a.m.; Tricia Halloran, host of "Brave New World" on Saturdays from midnight to 2 a.m.; and Greg DaPonte, host of "Night Song" on Sundays from midnight to 3 a.m.

    Some complained about the short notice they were given about the cancellations.

    "This is show business," Ruth Seymour, the station's general manager, responded Tuesday. "You don't give someone notice and then put them in front of a microphone."
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Who cares if she read this, she is a despotic old lady. I might even us the "C word" to describe her.

    What did she do that was scary? Is she a control freak, because that is what I have heard.

    Those DJ's did not get paid anyways. DJ's after 12 don't make any money. Tricia Halloran was a great DJ though and a nice person. Its a shame really.

    I know, she was nice. Why is Ruth Seymour such a bitch, is her old ass even awake at midnight anyway. She should be more hands off and not such a control freak. I bet her husband left her, if she was even married in the first place.

    Ken Ruth does not know anything about modern music. I think she believes she is the reason for KCRWs popularity. Its really mostly because of its location. When I was there she was single.

    Another irony is that KCRW is part of Santa Monica College, but unlike many other radio stations based at a cloolege or university, I do not believe any of their DJs or talk show hosts are students at Santa Monica College.

    It's too bad they got rid of Scott Silva.I didn't listen to connections much but, he was a good host on MBE when Nic Harcourt was out.

    You don't get much better than Tricia Halloran. The other DJ's that they let go were ok. Thomas Golubic is nice but not a very good DJ. When I was there they would not let him host anything but the swingshift. I don't know any of these new people.

    I hope Tricia Halloran finds radio employment elsewhere. Maybe she has a website or something.

    Yeah I bet Scott is crushed. He was just trying to be a DJ when I was there. I helped him and Raul out a lot. I tought them how they should present themselves on the air.
