  • 6/10/03 - When did talk radio start? I'm checking. So far: Rebels on the Air - An Alternative History of Radio in America by Jesse Walker (of L.A.), New York University Press, 2001 says on page 74:
    "Second, Fass expanded the idea of what talk radio could be. The first call-in program had been launched in 1945, by Barry Gray of WOR-AM. But the idea didn't take off until the '50s...""

    6/22.4/03 - More on KFI weekend changes. Looks like Jeff Levey will be 1-3p both Sa and Su starting Saturday. This corrects the 6/21/03 Flash - Saturday starts a new schedule like: 6-10a Bill Handel, 10a-1p Melinda Lee, 1-3p Jeff Levey. Sunday could be 7-9a(?) Ben Dover, 10a-1p Melinda Lee, 1-3p Jeff Levey.

    6/21.4/03 - Tonight's fight. Remember KNX 1070 AM can carry round-by-round reports on pay-per-view fights, but they may not cover tonight's fight, the first heavy-weight championship fight in L.A. since the 1958. Typically, it would start between 6 and 8p and be over around 9p. However, the sports stations will carry news before and after the fight (like 690, 710, 1150, 1540 AM, whatever). Story at www.latimes.com/sports/la-sp-boxadv21jun21,1,3120345.story.

    6/21.3/03 - "RADIO Saturday Radio Highlights." LAT's rather long but not complete list of radio shows appears again, but doesn't list much for evening shows. Check www.calendarlive.com/tv/radio/cl-et-tvradio21jun21.story.

    6/21/03 - Weekend Changes at KFI 640 AM. Today Mario Martinoli and his restaurant show are noon-2p. He does about the best restaurant show on the air, but he hasn't been on much, since he left KABC, reason unknown. Next Saturday starts a new schedule like: 6-10a - Bill Handel, 10a-1p - Melinda Lee, 1-2p - Jeff Levey. More as I get it, but Captain Dale Dye could be history. Too bad, cause he did an ok show.

    6/20.8/03 - "Big Dan Kemosabe Board. To many of us, Dan Ingram is one of the greatest radio personalities of all time. With Dan's announcement that he has finished his almost 12 year run on WCBS-FM, it seems like a good time to wish him luck. Feel free to discuss his departure and the controversy surrounding it." It's at musicradio.computer.net/ingboard/wwwboard/.

    6/20.7/03 - "GORE PLOTS LIBERAL TV, RADIO OUTLET. Now that he's out of politics, Al Gore is working on the ambitious project of building a liberal TV and radio empire, a new report says. Gore has been talking with fat-cat Democrats about putting up big bucks for the project, which Gore views as an antidote to the influence of conservative talk-radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh, Time reported on its Web site yesterday." More at www.nypost.com/business/1331.htm. www.newradiostar.com/'s tip.

Despite recent ratings success by the Talk Radio Network-syndicated talker, ABC Radio's Big Apple flagship has yanked Savage from his nightly 7-9pm slot until a dispute over his local contract with ABC Talk sister KSFO/San Francisco - where he is also off the air - gets resolved." More at www.radioandrecords.com/ with free news. Locally, he's on Mo-Fr, 5-8p, KRLA 870 AM, but I don't listen much. Actually, I should listen 7:30-8p due to lack of other stuff.

    6/20.5/03 - Bill Handel fills for John and Ken today, 3-7p, KFI 640 AM. Matt Drudge filled Tu-Th and did an ok job, but what do you think?

    6/20.4/03 - Talk Radio Now at www.talkradionow.com/ doesn't seem to be working today.

    6/20.3/03 - Some headlines from www.laradio.com/:

    6/16/03 - Music Review - Sarah Brightman's new "Harem" CD mixes Near-Eastern themes with a Puccini tune, a couple of standards, rich orchestrations, strong melodies, and Sarah's beautiful voice. "Harem" may be welcomed by Sarah's fans, like me, but it may not be strong enough to attract many new listeners. Like, my favorite may still be her heavy-duty, almost-over-the-top "Classics" CD. "Harem" is Angel 7243 5 37180 2 2. Try www.sarah-brightman.com/ and www.angelrecords.com/. P.S. - A sticker on my CD refers to "16 new recordings," but I only found 14 tracks.
