Los Angeles public radio station KCRW has always been a haven of good taste — the influential show Morning Becomes Eclectic was the first to play artists like Beck and Gotye in the U.S.– but recently they’ve let a few celebs take their turn at playing DJ.

Among the latest to share their favorite songs with Angelenos on the stations’ Guest DJ Project are three of the stars of HBO’s True Blood: Joe Manganiello, Sam Trammell, and Alexander Skarsgard.

The werewolf/shapeshifter/vampire trio have as different tastes in music as their alteregos have appetites: Manganiello favors electro-pop tracks like M83’s “Steve McQueen,” while Trammel goes for classics like R.E.M.’s “Radio Free Europe,” and Skarsgard mixes in some of his Scandinavian heritage with Ebba Gron’s 800.

But you don’t have to live in L.A. to enjoy the music: Check out the playlist below and take a listen to a few of their favorites, then visit kcrw.com to hear more:
