Customer Reviews

Wow, just when I thought KCRW couldn't get any better...

...they release this free app that is perfectly tailored for the app-radio-experience! If you are not a donor to this listener supported station then this app alone should be enough to make a donation.

- graphical interface to view and listen to recently played songs, selected by their DJ's
- one tap to access the Eclectic24 station stream, so you can toggle back and forth between previous songs and what's on now
- bios, videos, photos, and additional tracks for the artist(s)
- simple and cool interface
- one tap to stream via Airplay

Simple, elegant, next evolution of the streaming music experience. Enjoy!

Amazing music experience!

What a great iPad app from KCRW. Just when I thought they would never port their excellent iPhone app over, they've gone and changed the game.

Music Mine is a truly organic interface for exploring and interacting with new music.

This app doesn't replace the iPhone app, as it doesn't allow browsing of the archives beyond what they've chosen to make available in the "grid". Hopefully they keep the content fresh, and eventually build in a way to browse back through the archives.

I'm a proud supporter of KCRW, despite living a couple thousand miles away. This crew truly understands how radio fits in the Internet age.

Best Sound Quality and Selections

Eclectic 24 takes music choices and listening to a whole new and exciting level of radio entertainment. The overall app will fill the air with irresistible sound waves. The quality of sound is a sure "WINNER" for users. First use, the app's content will keep you coming back. The homepage's content makes me want to explore the app further. The graphics are pleasing. I would highly recommend this app to a friend or colleague. Fantastic Job Done!
