Morning Cup

Monday - Friday, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The Morning Cup is a program that is about good music. Good music of all types. You will hear some of the rising new artists from today as well as legends from the past. Join Neal Losey each weekday morning as he plays jazz, soul, blues, Americana, R&B, indie and other forms of music from all around the world.

Expect to find out about live music happening around the Central Coast, and be prepared to have your chance at winning some concert tickets, too!

The show is live and local so call or email requests, music suggestions, comments, questions and even tell Neal about live performances in our community.

Jungle Fire

Jungle Fire's Michael Duffy is one of three percussionists in the 10-piece Latin funk band from Los Angeles. In anticipation of the KCBX Holiday Funk & Folk Fest on December 10th, 2017, Duffy talks with Marisa Waddell about the band's music, creative process, and upcoming album. Plus, a sampling of tracks from their last album, "Tropicoso."


Jake Shimabukuro has taken his instrument, the ukulele, to a level of virtuosity that is sometimes astounding.

He is starting a tour to support his upcoming album "Travels," which will be released on October 9th, 2015 and he will make a stop at the Performing Arts Center in San Luis Obispo on Saturday, August 15th.

Slide guitarist, virtuoso banjo player, and singer-songwriter Tony Furtado makes a visit to the KCBX studios. 

He plays a few songs, and chats with Marisa Waddell about his instruments, the evolution of his musical style, and his other artistic life -- working with clay.  Special thanks to audio engineer Brian Lanzone.
