1/25.3/03 - "Savage Nation (KPLS afternoons) debuts book #1 on NY Times list," says an older headline at www.laradio.com. Several talk hosts have had hit books recently, but they don't seem to last very long. KPLS 830 AM is that stupid talk station with a web page but no schedule. They deserve their non-existent ratings, for that reason alone.

KGB 101.5 FM has a site at www.101kgb.com/ and lists Super Bowl activities. Fireworks is mentioned on their www.101kgb.com/jacor-common/sandiego/superbowl_page_all.html, after the concert.

1/24.9/03 - KNX Drama Hour, daily, 9-10p (except Wed 10-11p) and 2-3a, KNX 1070 AM. "Gunsmoke" is one of the best westerns, but "The Shadow," even with Orson Wells, is only ok.
1/24.8/03 - LA Weekly's program picks for today:
1/24.7/03 - "New Katz study shows Arbitron response rates are down in the Fall book. Katz Radio Group's Shaunagh Guinness says the biggest culprit is the "significantly lower consent rates." Read the entire Katz report here." Get it at www.insideradio.com/.

The WJR-AM/Detroit-based talk host will continue to host his Monday-Friday nationally syndicated program, but network brass has told affiliates it will no longer offer a weekend "best of" show."

1/24.4/03 - FYI - "BBC Laying Off 61 TV, Radio Journalists. The British Broadcasting Corp. said Friday it was laying off 61 journalists as part of an effort to save $800 million." And, "The BBC is publicly owned and largely funded through a $181 annual license fee paid by all television owners." Do radio owners still pay fees?

1/23.10/03 - FYI - Want to teach English in China, have a nice trip, and maybe write some of it off? Check out, "English chat opens doors in China." Also, of interest to me was, "One Chinese teacher of English told me that he and his colleagues advocate making English the official second language of China. By 2040, he hopes, China will be one of the largest English-speaking countries on Earth. Radio and television programs teach it to the public."

"It was a question of wanting to maximize the opportunity with our combination of signals in the market," Entravision Radio VP/Programming Haz Montana tells R&R. "We felt there was an opportunity for this, and these were the perfect signals among all our assets to throw it on." The stations are airing 10,000 songs in a row commercial-free, and the first hour featured songs by Lasgo, Opus III, Nu Shooz, Stardust and Bob Marley & The Wailers. New call letters are pending for the stations, which are modeled after co-owned Dance-formatted KKDL/Dallas. KSSC & KSSD have a history of Dance programming: The two stations, formerly KACD & KBCD, were "Groove 103.1" in the late '90s and "Mars FM" in the early '90s. Super Estrella will stay on KSSE for now, but Montana says a format flip is imminent." www.radioandrecords.com/ had this yesterday.

HD Radio was officially endorsed by the FCC as the recommended delivery method for digital broadcasting in the U.S." Says www.radioandrecords.com/, but there are about three other stations on the air. They have a site which won't let you back out at http://www.1027kissdetroit.com/1027/index.htm, and it doesn't say anything. Just say no; don't go!
1/7.3/03 - KNX Drama Hour, daily, 9-10p, KNX 1070 AM. I don't recall "The Frontier Gentleman." "Nightbeat" usually has a good story; just don't let the newspaper theme turn you off.

1/6.6/03 - More public affairs shows on KOST and KBIG. Maybe I'm nuts or maybe I heard public affairs shows on KOST 103.5 FM and KBIG 104.3 FM on Sunday between about 6-7a. I did check their web sites, but I didn't see any info. More if I find it.
1/6.5/03 - Less is more but still too much. Few seem to listen to sports radio in L.A., but this newest story is in the media, like at forums.delphiforums.com/laradio/messages/?msg=128.1, a new bb, who says, "FOX SPORTS AM 1150 in L.A. and XTRA SPORTS 690 San Diego are now simulcasting as XTRA SPORTS 690 AND 1150."

1/5/03 - Gary Lycan's radio stuff in the OCR:
1/4.15/03 - The NOAA weather channels on my Sony radio always had poor reception, but the other day I noticed I could hear reports on five of the seven channels, and two of these channels were strong. The other two channels were just noise. Maybe it's winter or the San Fernando Valley, or whatever.
1/4.14/03 - LA City.com - a new radio info page. These guys linked to me and have L.A. radio info at developer2.imssoft.com/lacity_live/Default.asp. Try it.
1/4.13/03 - Weekend schedule changes at KFI 640 AM are being announced today for next weekend. Keep an eye on www.kfi640.com/programming.html, but they haven't posted any changes yet.

1/4.12/03 - Talk Radio Now, a newish site, at www.talkradionow.com/. Found it on the NYr bb. One comment was, "Re: Re: Re: And so it starts for the Art Bell cancelations...>>www.talkradionow.com<<...

His ABC Radio Networks-syndicated show fills the midnight-3am slot previously held by Premiere's Coast To Coast AM; that show, hosted by George Noory since Art Bell's Dec. 31, 2002 retirement, will follow Elder's program. The Larry Elder Show, based out of KABC-AM/Los Angeles, is set to debut on WLS on Tuesday. Elder is widely known in Chicago as the host of the syndicated TV show Moral Court." From www.radioandrecords.com/ where they do update the site on Saturday. 'Someone' said George Noory's numbers were up, but stations could reduce or drop the show if his numbers drop.
1/4.8/03 - Michael Jackson on talk radio. His site, linked above, says, "In the first week of January look for Michael's article on Talk Radio in the 'Daily Variety.'" I didn't see anything today, but it's not all free. P.S. - I returned to his site today, and this notice was deleted. What's up?
1/4.7/03 - KNX Drama Hour, daily, 9-10p, KNX 1070 AM. Comedy tonight. Check the date and location of the "The Jack Benny Program." "The Great Gildersleeve" was never one of my favorites, but give it a try.

1/3.18/03 - Concerning Jackie Olden on KCMJ, you probably won't receive the station in L.A. See the 1/2.11/03 Flash for details.

1/3.15/03 - Concerning "Salem may be buying KPLS" below, KPLS may have good shows, but no one knows what or when. A sale could be a good thing. KPLS has been unable to assemble a program schedule on their web site or even keep the site up. However, Salem usually can, but changes can take a while. And, KPLS never gets good Arbitron numbers.
1/3.14/03 - Clear Channel streams in L.A. and San Diego. "Clear Channel Stops Streaming of San Diego Stations only KOGO is still streaming. 91X's website still has a "streaming is back" page, but the stream seems to have been discontinued as well.
