8/2002 L.A. Radio Flashes. Read Columns & Columnists (C&C) daily if you can. They get most stuff before I do. So does Radio Headlines which are updated instantly. To save space, for example, 6a means 6 a.m., 8p means 8 p.m., & midn means midnight. I'll be on a new schedule the next few months and may not have time for this stuff. Keep checking 'was Columns & Columnists' (C&C) and Radio Headlines yourself for the newest stuff.
8/31.5/02 - "The Romantic Hours," Saturday, 10-11p, KMZT 105.1 FM, weekly, hosted by Mona Golabek, combines written word with music. This was the topic of the 8/25/02 Daily News U section article which I couldn't find on their web site. It was called "Classic Romance," by Andy Meister, from The New York Times. Maybe they couldn't put it on their site cause it was from the Times, but I did waste my time looking for it. Info and links at www.kkgofm.com/romantic_hours_with_mona_golabek.htm. Also, www.wqxr.com/cgi-bin/iowa/cla/article.html?record=199 suggests you can hear it on line and seems to provide a very slow link to the original (above montioned) article and more.
8/31.4/02 - FYI - "New Music Weekend. Releases abound for the holiday. Labor Day weekend is the traditionally considered the unofficial end of the summer — and beginning of the fall. In addition, the recording industry also begins to bring out their heavy artillery of big name artists. This weekend, radio is lucky enough to have a plethora of new music from superstars such as Missy Elliott..." More at www.radioandrecords.com/.
8/31.3/02 - FYI - UK - "Radio 1 axes Evening Session. For 11 years, it has been renowned for bringing new musical talent to the airwaves and into the charts." More at www.thisislondon.co.uk/dynamic/hottx/review.html?in_review_id=682484&in_review_text_id=654901. Moreover.com's tip.

8/31/02 - "FOR THE RECORD. Radio station--A story published Aug. 16 identified KFBK-AM (1530) as a Los Angeles station. It is in Sacramento." This is one of many corrections that appear in the LAT and somedays seem to fill page A2.
8/30.12/02 - Labor Day radio on 9/1/02 may be better than expected. There could be some good fill-in hosts, specials, and some best-of shows. I'll be listening, not typing.
8/30.11/02 - Baseball continues. "Radio stations, syndicators and webcasters that rely on baseball for revenue are breathing a huge sigh of relief right now as a baseball strike is diverted and the games play on," says www.newradiostar.com/. Too bad. I'm glad people won't lose money or jobs, but baseball should be for fun only, not money.
8/30.10/02 - "Fewer format changes ahead. Labor Day Weekend used to be a popular time for format changes -- But not this one. Consolidation means fewer stations changing hands and fewer format changes -- unlike the days when the M Street Database logged 8% to 10% of stations switching formats annually." More at what was www.insideradio.com/.
8/30.9/02 - "AFTRA Urges Letters Against Clear Channel's Voicetracking. Union steps up 'Keep N.Y. Radio Live' campaign. As part of its ongoing fight against the proliferation of voicetracking at Clear Channel's Gotham properties, AFTRA/New York is asking people to send e-mails directly to Mark Mays, Lowry Mays and John Hogan." More at www.radioandrecords.com/.
8/30.8/02 - Other legal names for CC/CCC are discussed at 126.96.36.199/boards/ctc/index.cgi?read=12460. From the ctcr bb.
8/30.7/02 - One column missing today. I didn't see Richard Wagoner's Friday column at members.cox.net/rwagoner/ or in the RAVE! paper. Could he be on vacation?
8/30.6/02 - KNX Drama Hour, daily, 9-10p, KNX 1070 AM. Good drama tonight.
8/30.5/02 - LA Weekly's program picks for today:
8/30.4/02 - Bill Maher from "PI" gets new TV show. No radio show? See www.pagesix.com/lizsmith/lizsmith.htm. Larry's tip.
8/30.3/02 - Arbitron posts some rating stats on their site. They didn't used to do this. Note that you can request different age demos. See wargod.arbitron.com/scripts/ndb/fmttrends2.asp. Larry's tip.

8/29.9/02 - "RIAA Website Attacked Again. The association's website (www.riaa.com/), which was shut down in early August by a denial-of-service attack, was hit again yesterday — this time by hackers." And, "...as of last night the RIAA's official site was still unreachable." Also from www.radioandrecords.com/. This may be related to the RIAA's push on ISP's to block a Chinese music site. See previous Flash.
8/29.8/02 - "Radio Gears Up For Possible Baseball Strike" and "With just one day to go before a planned work stoppage by Major League Baseball players..." says www.radioandrecords.com/. Baseball is for kids, and some of these need a spanking. Get baseball off the radio or on Disney's KDIS (same thing), and open time for better stuff. Keep an eye on any media outlet for updates. Also, "Radio.... local, national, satellite and internet, are scrambling to get ready to fill in, not only the time but a huge loss in revenue," says www.newradiostar.com/.

More at www.fromthewilderness.com/free/ww3/082802_kpfk.html. Moreover.com's tip.
8/29/02 - Searches in the Los Angeles Downtown News seem to work again. Entering words like radio will get results, but I didn't notice anything new that was of interest to me. PS - Their search stopped working a month or two ago. Try www.downtownnews.com/archive/index.inn.
8/28.10/02 - Headphone replacement news. My poor 99¢ headphones were replaces with "Koss KTX-1," it says on the phones. Much better sound and volume, and they more firmly grip my head. The cord is longer, and I tie it in a knot to keep it out of the way, but a twister would be better. The cord looks like small, speaker wire and should last longer. At Wal*Mart the shelf said maybe $5.99, but they rang for $4.96 plus tax. They come with or without extra ear pads, at the same price? Details and updates at Radio Hardware someday.
8/28.9/02 - CCC search engine finds CCC info: "Search criteria : Market, Format, Call letters, or Frequency." Try www.clearchannel.com/Radio/rad_search.php. Tip from ctcr bb.

LAradio has a story that Jhani Kaye has begun to "hire back" KOST personalities that were let go in favor of the voice tracking system Cheap Channel "revloutionized" the radio biz with..." A bb posting, more at members3.boardhost.com/scgroove/msg/11097.html. Read the comments which follow; maybe it's cause the DJs work cheaper!
8/28.7/02 - "Saul Levine urges Congress: Don't let XM or Sirius be acquired by a big radio group." Also from what was www.insideradio.com. Sam runs 'classical KMZT-FM (105.1) and contemporary standards KSUR-AM (1260)' in L.A.
8/28.6/02 - "AFTRA appeals to the public to keep CC’s voicetracking out of New York. In the past week AFTRA members have handed out leaflets at two concerts sponsored by Clear Channel’s WKTU. AFTRA’s message to the public is that the community would be hurt by the loss of personal appearances and on-air promotions...." More at what was www.insideradio.com.

8/28.2/02 - "Atlanta: Sean Hannity autographs 600 books in 5 hours (do the math) (read)," says Larry, at www.radiodailynews.com/, and linked above. However, book deals differ. Maybe he got all his money up front, but the contract says he must push his book for free. Or, at the other end, maybe he got nothing up front, and maybe as much as a $1.00 for each book sold. You don't know till you see the contract, especially first books, especially in these times.

8/19/02 - LAT remains unsearchable. A search for their "In the Know" column this morning didn't pin-point it. You'll have to hunt through their Calendar section at www.latimes.com/entertainment/printedition/calendar/ where you'll find three items which, from their titles, don't seem to discuss radio. However, these three items are listed on their list of "Morning Report" columns at www.calendarlive.com/tools/more.jsp?section=%2Fprintedition%2Fcalendar%2Fmreport which today doesn't list any "Morning Report" columns. Don't expect me to find much radio stuff in the LAT (even if they print any) till searches become productive.

8/17.1/02 - John and Ken, mentioned yesterday, will be on vacation for about a week, starting Monday. But, they will return instantly when/if the David Westerfield trial ends.
8/17/02 - The LAT revised their keyword searches or whatever this week, so my old searches on C&C don't work. This was first mentioned in the 8/14.1/02 flash. Here are a few new ones, set to search the whole LAT, but the results from the Calendar section could be the best. However, these search seem not to find stuff before about the last few days??
8/16.12/02 - Talk KFI is #4, leaving talk KABC in the dust. All-news KNX is only 0.1 behind talk KLSX and both also beat talk KABC. Classical music KMZT-FM beats all-news KFWB-AM. Talk KLAC doubled talk KRLA's numbers, but new KRLA morning show could help. This period's Arbitron numbers are in at www.radioandrecords.com/Subscribers/ratings/homepage.htm, and click on Los Angeles or #2. R&R says, "In Los Angeles, CHR/Rhythmic KPWR moves 4.9-5.0 to strengthen its No. 1 position, while Alternative KROQ jumps 4.3-4.8 to take second. Regional Mexican KSCA dips 4.7-4.4 for third."
8/16.11/02 - Ron Fineman comment, by a reader, concerning the 8/16.2/02 flash. "He's been more and more out of control over the last year. Getting more strident and vicious in expressing his opinions of industry people, particularly women and minorities, as well as his general political opinions. It doesn't affect his general audience, since they don't see the site, but for me, he lost all credibility as a reporter. And you can't just throw around crap and expect to work in the same industry in the same city. Not smart. I hope he learns something from this." From members3.boardhost.com/scgroove/msg/10887.html.
8/16.10/02 - John and Ken website correction. They announce it as www.johnandkenshow.com/, but I did list it as www.johnandken.com/ which also seems to work. Check their site for links to newspapers articles, etc. John and Ken, weekdays, 3-7p, KFI 640 AM - just don't tell anyone you listen.

8/16.2/02 - "Reporter for KNX-AM Fired in Web Site Flap." Part-timer Ron Fineman says he was let go for posting e-mail critical of a producer. Station remains mum. Ron Fineman, a part-time reporter for KNX-AM (1070), was fired Thursday by the news station. He maintains the action stemmed from negative comments he published about a sister Viacom property, KCBS-TV, on his Web site. The site, www.ronfineman.com/ ..." My hot link. More at www.calendarlive.com/tv/lowry/cl-et-lowry16aug16.story. I did read his site for a while after I linked, but it was always about TV, no radio. I even emailed asking for radio.

8/9.11/02 - "Talker Neal Boortz asks: Why should broadcasters swear off ads for a whole day? After all -- nobody's asking newspapers or magazines to cancel all their advertising.

More at events.calendarlive.com/top/1,1419,L-LATimes-TV-X!ArticleDetail-68603,00.html.
8/9/02 - Richard Wagoner's Friday column isn't on his site or in the RAVE! paper. Maybe he's on vacation.
8/8/02 - Tripod was broken today; I couldn't get into their site editor.
8/7.7/02 - KCRW 89.9 FM returns to top-25 list at number 24 on the www.measurecast.com/ list, but, as we all know, KCRW is not an internet-only station. I tire of their weekly mistakes as, I'm sure, people tire of mine.
8/7.6/02 - "iBiquity Digital Readies TiVo-Like Radio Service. IBOC developer gets Command Audio license. In-band, on-channel digital radio developer iBiquity Digital has obtained an exclusive worldwide license for Command Audio's digital radio assets, including Command's on-demand audio tools. iBiquity says that radio broadcasters will be able to provide listeners with on-demand programming that will operate in much the same way as on-demand television provider TiVo, including such features as pausing content or saving it for later listening." From www.radioandrecords.com. Others says the IBOC radio-broadcast system itself has known problems/objections, but I haven't heard anything about this 'TiVo' stuff.
8/7.5/02 - "ASK THE SCHOOLS CHIEF" was scheduled for today, 10a, on KFWB 980 AM. They just posted it on their site today; a little late. Yesterday's 8/6.4/02 Flash had a warning and the site link concerning this lack of notice.
8/7.4/02 - KNX Drama Hour, daily, 9-10p, KNX 1070 AM. But first:
8/7.3/02 - Larry King, Mon-Fri, 8-9p, KFWB 980 AM.
8/7.2/02 - LA Weekly's program picks for today:
8/7.1/02 - FYI - Headphones. The headphones that came with my Sony radio (see hardware, the 12/22/01 item) lasted about seven months before they opened near the left ear. I do tend to drop headphones. I switched to another pair leftover from an off-brand radio, and they only lasted a few weeks before they opened near the plug. These sounded fuzzy compared to the Sony. Now I'm on a pair from the 99¢ Only Store which sound fuzzy, tinny, low-fi, low volume, and are even poor for voice. Even maximum bass boost doesn't change the sound through the phones. Outside I often at full volume. In the past I didn't like the the 99¢ Only phones cause they mechanically fell apart, but these look like another design, so we'll see how they last. P.S. - These come with a quarter-inch-plug adapter. Point: there are differences between headphones.
8/7/02 - FYI - Pic 'N' Save becomes Big! Lots. Pic 'N' Save, a group of discount stores known for their often dirty, unkept stores, total lack of service, long checkout lines, and often high prices, changes their name to Big! Lots. Some stores have the Big! Lots sign and another that says they were formerly Pic 'N' Save. They were even a step down from Kmart. They'd better change before the 99¢ Only Store group, started by former Pic 'N' Save employees, takes all their business.
8/6.4/02 - "Ask the Mayor" & "Ask the School Chief." KFWB 980 AM hasn't yet posted their 8/02 schedule for these shows, but keep checking Wednesday at 10a. Keep an eye on kfwb.com/inside.asp.
8/6.3/02 - "'Good Mornin' (Your Town Here)'. It's 11 p.m. Do you know where your favorite disc jockey is?" Another Randy Dotinga outlet. More at www.wired.com/news/business/0,1367,54037,00.html. Larry's tip.

8/5.3/02 - The new morning show, "M&M in the Morning," I heard the first show today. Friday was a try out. Mark does most of the talking, and Larry, for now, just does the news. I want more Larry. They do plan to cover news, topics, have guests, and listener call-ins, but they're still working on the format. Bill Simon, running for CA governor, was on and may be on every week. Mark did drift into happy-talk which puts me to sleep. It's on weekdays, 6-9a, KRLA 870 AM, with Mark Larson and Larry Marino. Check Mark's site at www.marklarson.com/ for previews?, recaps, streaming?, etc. But, Bill Handel on KFI is still about the best in the morning.

Angry and frustrated, a press officer, Steve Maviglio, responded by redirecting the calls to the newsroom of KFI-AM in Los Angeles."

KFI and Davis don't play well together which may be why Davis didn't give KFI credit for helping rescue the two girls. And, why didn't the LAT cover this? - but they do have a KFI-related story at www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-media2aug02005054.story?null.

Also in LAT at www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-amber2aug02005054.story, but you may need to do the free-registration thing. www.laexaminer.com/ has "Crazy State-Wide Alert Saves Girls" with links.

"KSDO (1130 AM San Diego at www.ksdo.com/) plays the Kim Komando show on Saturdays from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. Although her knowledge of computers is poor, she is worth listening to if you happen to be online and need background chatter."
"I heard the broadcast last Saturday. However, from what I understand, other stations who syndicate this program usually stop streaming when she is on the air due to her request. Hence, this online broadcast may be pulled at any time."
8/1.8/02 - "All Radio-Info.com boards are now reopened at the new server," but the los Angeles board is still closed. See 188.8.131.52/ or radio-info.com/boards/losangeles/.

New KNX Drama Hour schedule, 7/1/02, 9-10p (below), 2-3a, and internet starting 7/1/02. The only three changes for mid-year are marked with a +.
