This Weekend: KCRW Hosts Halloween ‘Masquerade’ Fundraiser

For the second year in a row, KCRW is hosting a massive fundraising party over Halloween weekend at the Park Plaza. Called “Masquerade,” the show will feature music from Cut Chemist, Gram Rabbit and The Duke Spirit. 14 KCRW DJs will be also be spinning at the event, including, we’re told, Henry Rollins.

The show takes on an added significance in the wake of the Juan Williams/NPR fiasco–which has threatened to hamper fundraising efforts for member stations. If this show sells out like last year, at 75 bucks a ticket, it would go a long way towards easing any post-Williams fundraising malaise.
