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 long URL. (12/12/02)

12/12.1/02 - Radio Korea 1230 AM has a site at The navigation bars are in English, but most of the text is in Korean, strange. Have they changed their call letters?

I know nothing. Radio-locator shows the station in West Covina, east of L.A., with a Spanish format.
