    Meet LA Radio Host and EDM Master Jason Bentley

    The longtime KCRW music director talks vinyl and Daft Punk with host Anthony Valadez in the series broadcast premiere of 'Crate Diggers'

    Everyone's favorite vinyl-loving series finally makes its return, as host Anthony Valadez sits down with radio DJ and KCRW coworker Jason Bentley.

    As a veteran in both record collecting and the EDM world, it's only fitting that Bentley shares his vinyl tips and tricks. Grabbing a Pizzicato Five record off the shelf, he reveals one of his favorite facts—the inside etching, usually caught when the light is just right, serves as a record ID code.

    And then came the question of which one record Bentley would save if caught in a burning room, the answer to which may surprise you.
