How searchable audio fits into KCRW’s workflow
If you’ve ever turned the radio dial while driving along the streets of Los Angeles, chances are you’ve heard something from KCRW. From their signature music program “Morning Becomes Eclectic” to current events programs like “To the Point,” the Santa Monica station captures and broadcasts a diverse and lively combination of perspectives to Californians every day.
Pop Up Archive began working with KCRW in the summer of 2014. Since that time, the station has created over 30 collections split among more than a dozen active team members. Pop Up’s public archive of KCRW content has grown to over 2,000 hours of audio.
