Ethnic Radio Stations in the Los Angeles (L.A.), California (CA) area. No verification. Some may be low-power stations and hard to receive. Also, several stations can be on the same frequency, and stations do change their call letters and frequencies. I haven't looked for web sites, but let's assume they're too small to have sites. The two 8/21/01's are from www.lainsider.com/- long URL. (12/12/02)
12/12.1/02 - Radio Korea 1230 AM has a site at www.radiokorea.com/. The navigation bars are in English, but most of the text is in Korean, strange. Have they changed their call letters?
12/12/02 - KRMB 1430 AM has an 'about us' page at www.am1430.net/about/about.htm. The main page at www.am1430.net/, and the other pages are mostly in Chinese.
11/10/02 - Filipino show. The ad in a Filipino newspaper says, "back on the air," "operation tulong," "a public service program," "live on KALI 900 AM radio nightly Monday-Friday from 10:00 to 11:00 p.m.," and "interview with stars on the air...live..!" I know nothing. Radio-locator shows the station in West Covina, east of L.A., with a Spanish format.
7/27/02 - The Daily News newspaper in the San Fernando Valley has a list of local radio stations in the Friday edition of their U magazine section. Just frequency and format, nothing on their web site, and not much new info. Their 7/26/02 list of ethnic stations will follow as time allows. See the 1/13.1/02 Flash below for some web sites.

1/13.1/02 - Ethnic stations around L.A. are listed at www.radio-locator.com/. They list 121 stations and seem to have the most current and correct info, but other sources on C&C disagree.
