On Tuesday, January 15th, 2008, at precisely 11:32 am, Nic Harcourt played my song “To Fill the Void” on Morning Becomes Eclectic. What a sweet surprise to hear myself on the radio, sharing the airwaves with Sia, Iron and Wine!! Shortly there-after my inbox overflowed with emails from excited friends and fans (I hate saying fans, can we come up with a better term?) who had been listening to KCRW at the time my song was played. Text messages, phone calls, Myspace comments, eager to inform me of the news 😉 I confess, it was a rush and I thoroughly enjoyed the enthusiasm!
But, it wasn’t long before I started to wonder, “what does this mean?”… Was it a one time thing? Will he play the track again? Yes, very similar indeed to a one-night stand, particularly the stereotypical female experience, where she lays in the bed next to her lover in mental turmoil after the fact. If you don’t know what I mean, we can discuss it in detail some time over tea. Again, I said stereotypical, the assumption that she wants more, that she is or will be emotionally attached is the stereotype (and boy do I have a tangent about that).
Now, after 10 years at the station Nic Harcourt has announced that he is leaving Morning Becomes Eclectic, which occupied the airwaves Monday-Friday from 9a.m.-12p.m. He is still doing a weekly Sunday night show at 6-9 p.m., but after November 30th, his tenure is through.
