Henry Rollins Returns to the Radio Airwaves on KCRW This Saturday
Henry warns listeners to bring their track shoes, promising his Saturday show will careen vigorously through time and genres. While his background as a musician is in punk rock, his playlist will reflect his voracious interest in “absorbing music from all over.”

Rollins previously hosted a radio show on LA commercial station Indie 103 and brings a wealth of music he has collected while traveling the world, as a musician, producer and stage performer. His direct and open communication with his listening audience has always been notable and he will continue this at KCRW. His DJ page will feature additional information on the artists he plays, as well as a direct email address for listeners looking to reach out.
A Grammy winner for the performance of his own book Get in the Van, Henry is not one to confine his performances strictly to the stage. He performs in movies and TV shows including Bad Boys II and Heat, and was host of his own The Henry Rollins Show on IFC.
Henry recently finished filming a series of documentaries for IFC, and is currently hosting his weekly LA radio show, and running 2-13-61, a publishing company he created to release books, CDs and DVDs. He is also a regular blogger for Vanity Fair.
