  • "Major Media Players Square Off on FCC Rule Change" at story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/nm/20030428/media_nm/media_fcc_broadcst_dc_1.
  • "Movie, Music Giants Win One, Lose One" at www.internetnews.com/bus-news/article.php/2197311.

    4/29.4/03 - KNX Drama Hour, daily, 9-10p (except Wed 10-11p) and 2-3a, KNX 1070 AM. Both shows can be good.

  • "9:00 PM KNX DRAMA HOUR - "The Frontier Gentleman"
    Episode: The Cowboy
    Synopsis: Kendall and a cowboy encounter an Indian who has kidnapped a white woman.
    Original airdate: 5-25-58"
  • "9:30 PM KNX DRAMA HOUR - "Nightbeat"
    Episode: The Slasher
    Synopsis: Randy Stone investigates a knife attack on a woman.
    Original airdate: 11-10-50"

"Steve Eberhart reports that the History of American Broadcasting Web site features audio cuts of ABC, NBC, CBS and Mutual news intros + radio news legends bloopers by Paul Harvey, Lowell Thomas and more. (listen to 'em)." From Larry's site.

    4/29.2/03 - "Overnights at KABC Red Hot - 12.5 to KFI's 3.0 in 12+" headlines www.laradio.com/ where details cost, except when they're free. See the 4/21.14/03 Flash about free. This probably refers to "Red Eye Radio With Doug McIntyre, Tuesday - Friday: 1:00 AM - 5:00 AM, Saturday: 1:00 AM - 6:00 AM" on KABC vs George Noory on KFI. Doug McIntyre does a good show in a bad time slot. Is he ready for 'prime' time?

    4/29.1/03 - "Satellite Radio for your PC," "Marathon Results," "Marathon II," "Play Thing," "Time Change," and "Improvement Update" are packed into Richard Wagoner's Friday radio column at members.cox.net/rwagoner/, a few days early.

    4/29/03 - The list of L.A. Times radio tips for today on page E12 is rather larger than usual, perhaps because they didn't have much material for the Calendar section. Try to find a copy for yourself since this is not on their web site. But, it does contain a few mistakes, etc.

    4/28.8/03 - Tripod lost the original 4/28.4/03 thru 4/28.9/03 Flashes (whatever), and I don't have the time (or memory) to redo them. Nothing real important, but I'm not sure how it happened. Most of them probably came from Boards or Trades or www.moreover.com/.

    4/5.5/03 - When will KFWB carry Larry King, rather than the Dodgers? I'm not sure, but the Dodger schedule at losangeles.dodgers.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/la/schedule/la_schedule_calendar.jsp may help.

    4/5.3/03 - Trucking show question. On another board, MSN, where you have to join, Don asked:

  • Q - "Can someone confirm this for me...is KLAC running the Midnight Cowboy Trucking Network [MCTN] after midnight? On the one hand, LA has been remiss in running a program for those who haul our goods through the west, but outside of the comflict with the current format, at 5k, isn't the signal too weak for something like that? Or are they preparing for when that 50k application passes. Don"
  • A - KLAC plays the www.truckinbozo.com/, Tu-Sa? or Mo-Fr?, 2:06-5a. KLAC may stream. They reduce their power to 5k watts at night (from 50k days), but, with their low frequence, they have said they have good coverage. However, their nightime coverage map doesn't look that good.
  • PS - MCTN's site shows an outlet in Bakersfield, KERN 1410 AM, which should overlap coverage with KLAC. KERN coverage map.

KABC has been doing a weekend war zoo show, but who knows if that will continue? NPR?

    4/4.14/03 - Correction to the 4/3.12/03 Flash. Dumb 'Hot Talk' KPLS 830 AM now plays Neal Boortz in their Mo-Fr 7-9p slot. Neal, who I believe has not been on in the L.A. area recently, wins awards from someone, but I found his show somewhat boring. His site is www.bortz.com/. I'll try listening to KPLS enough to fill in their evening schedule, since they can't do it.

Hint: I haven't heard it used as an abbreviation before, it was spoken as a phrase. 4/19/03 - About 4/17 Neal Boortz used the whole spoken phrase.
