In celebration of Jason Bentley's tenure as Music Director for Los Angeles radio staple KCRW, the station has released a limited edition compilation vinyl consisting of live recordings from performances on Bentley's show, Morning Becomes Eclectic

Titled Morning Becomes Eclectic: Live from the Basement, the double LP includes performances from Vampire Weekend, Natalia Lafourcade, Beach House, Father John Misty and more. Bentley announced in June that he would be stepping down as Music Director and host of Morning Becomes Eclectic, effective Aug. 30.

“At the close of KCRW’s basement era, this compilation -- limited to 1000 pressings -- is a tribute to all the links in the chain who helped cast radio magic into the ether, and the audience who leaned-in to their radios for incredible moments like these," Bentley said in a press release. 

The vinyl is available on KCRW's website for a one-time donation of $240 or a monthly $20 donation, coming with a digital download card as well as KCRW membership for those who are not already members.
