She was the most influential American DJ you’ve never heard of. Deirdre O’Donoghue was a vital force in the musical underground of the 1980s. Countless artists crammed into her studio to perform live on her late-night show, “SNAP,” on KCRW. And after 40 years, we’ve made a wide cross-section of those sessions available again. Most haven’t been heard since the day of their original broadcast, and almost none have been heard from the original pre-broadcast source tapes.
