I can't tell you how many times I've missed out on a chance to receive a restaurant discount because I had no idea they were a participant in KCRW's Fringe Benefits program. Now, finally, KCRW is launching a new, free iPhone app that compiles the Fringe Benefits providers al in one place:
It provides access to an interactive directory of all the Fringe Benefits providers, including the capability to find participating businesses "nearby" via the phone’s GPS. You can search a mile, two miles, or five from your location and the app will find the Fringe Benefits providers in your area.

MEANWHILE, KCRW also reports that Saturday night DJ Jason Eldredge is moving to New York -- and that Mario Cotto will now take over the Saturday night 10 p.m. to midnight slot with what he calls his "special brand of eclectic electro freakbeat.”
Taking over Mario's Monday night slot, from midnight to 3 a.m., is Anthony Valadez -- who a few years ago was a fellow DJ of mine at KCSN (before that station, well, you know, decided to go in a different direction). Valadez spins at clubs around town including Zanzibar, Little Temple and Townhouse. Pretty cool -- there is good life after KCSN!
