“Carol Kaye” on KCRW’s Top Tune today!
We’re thrilled to have KCRW in our corner.Â They were one of the first stations to spin from July Flame, and Laura is scheduled to play the influential Morning Becomes Eclectic in February.
Recently the Santa Monica based station made a special request to include “Carol Kaye”–an homage to theÂ So. Cal session bass player legend who played on countless top 40 hits–in their Today’s Top Tune podcast:
On her new record, July Flame, singer Laura Veirs pays tribute to Carol Kaye, a bassist who was part of a practically invisible band called the Wrecking Crew that backed everyone from The Beach Boys to Glen Campbell to Ray Charles and never got the attention they deserved. Today’s Top Tune features vocals from Jim James (My Morning Jacket/Monsters of Folk) and is lovingly titled “Carol Kaye“.
