Morning Becomes Eclectic is the longstanding, flagship music program heard on KCRW, a station based in Santa Monica, California. Debuting in the late 70s, the program has become a respected platform for both burgeoning talent and more established acts.
Liz appeared on the show shortly after the release of her sophomore album, Whip-Smart, and in-between her dates of her short solo tour for the album.
Hosted by Chris Douridas, the interview segments feature Liz discussing topics ranging from her Girly-Sound recordings, growing up in Winnetka, being adopted, her guitar selection process, the benefits of touring solo, and Cindy Crawford, among other things.
The recording is particularly significant in that Liz plays three songs that were brand new at the time: “Beginning to See the Light,” “Wasted,” and “Hurricane Cindy.”
All three were also performed live during her solo tour for Whip-Smart, although “Hurricane Cindy” is the only song that was ever officially released—many years later on the Japanese import for whitechocolatespaceegg.

“Hurricane Cindy” was an outtake from Whip-Smart. Inspired by supermodel Cindy Crawford, Liz has switched up the lyrics a few times, but an official version (recorded in mono) was found on the Japanese import for whitechocolatespaceegg.
