12/31.2/02 - "Fearful immigrants turn to radio. Station covers arrests by INS.
LOS ANGELES (AP) - In the days following the arrests of hundreds of Middle Eastern men who voluntarily registered with the INS, a small Persian-language radio station became a powerful gathering place for the immigrant community, taking calls from those being detained and spearheading a rally that attracted thousands of protesters.
KIRN-AM [670 AM] canceled its programming to provide round-the-clock coverage of the detentions of nearly 400 Middle Eastern men after they reported to the Immigration and Naturalization Service on Dec. 16. Anyone who had problems with their immigration documents were taken into custody."

12/31/02 - "FCC Commissioner questions further industry consolidation. Not everyone at the Federal Communications Commission, the federal agency that oversees the nation's radio and TV stations, is for further deregulation of the broadcasting industry. One commissioner, Michael J. Copps, is worried about the effects of growing concentration of ownership in the hands of the fewer and bigger."

12/24.8/02 - Some program tips for the holidays are listed below. Check your favorite stations for more. Most are from Gary Lycan's column linked below, but I added and corrected some.
Holiday Specials, 12/23-12/25.
12/24.7/02 - "High-Tech Billboards 'Listen' To Car Radios. Electronic billboards that have the ability to switch the ads they display based on the radio stations drivers are listening to will debut on California roads in just a few weeks." More at www.radioandrecords.com/. Can anyone restructure that sentence?

Moreover.com/'s tip. An L.A. station tried all-traffic a while back.
12/24.3/02 - "Is my PC interfering with my AM radio? All of a sudden I can't pick up AM radio anywhere in the house. Even my car radio is useless when in the driveway." More Q&A at www.pcuser.com.au/pcuser/hs2.nsf/web/37375D9609908470CA256C9800747EB6. Larry's tip.
12/24.2/02 - "KSDO AM 1130 sale was confirmed yesterday. The 10,000 watt highly-directional broadcast station was sold for a reported $10 million. The new owner, Hi-Favor Broadcasting from la Los Angeles area. The owner is Roland Hinz, who is a board member of Salem Broadcasting, a magazine publisher. He also owns other broadcast outlets in the Inland Empire and other areas." From www.sdradio.net/. Larry's tip. Has (had) a full talk schedule like Kim Komando, site at www.ksdo.com/ , but hard to receive in L.A.
12/24.1/02 - "Robert Scheer: Is She Dr. Laura or Dr. Strange Love? OPINION. Some family values.

12/23.10/02 - "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," starts tonight 7p, in 12 episodes, 12/23-1/3, KCRW 89.9 FM. Also 1/1, complete series, 9a-3p. This was mislisted as starting on Tues. Check schedule for complex listing.
12/23.9/02 - Some program tips for the holidays moved to the 12/24.8/02 Flash.
12/23.8/02 - The new "J and J Show" on KFI 640 AM, mentioned yesterday, isn't much. Today, maybe all week, they'll fill for "John and Ken," 3-7p. I don't even see J & J listed on the KFI site. It's a him versus her, one side versus the other side, they don't agree, political, financial, whatever show.
12/23.7/02 - "The Year in Review" in Richard Wagoner's Friday radio column at members.cox.net/rwagoner/, several days early. But, I believe HD came from 'HD TV,' not HD audio. P.S. - both his site and bb are rather slow today.
12/23.6/02 - Radio Ink and New Radio Star at www.radioink.com/ and www.newradiostar.com/ take the day and maybe the week or more off. Others will also.
12/23.5/02 - "Mark Larson Reelected To San Diego Radio Broadcasters Assn. The current morning host and former GM of KCBQ & KPRZ/San Diego will serve his sixth consecutive term as President of the association, which is 25 stations strong. His show also airs on KRLA/Los Angeles." From www.radioandrecords.com/ cause it's a slow day. Does L.A. have an association? San Diego's is at www.sandiegoradio.com/sandiegoradio/default.htm, and it links to their member stations, etc.
12/23.4/02 - Tomm Looney was on KFI this morning, the Bill Handel time slot, but Bill and the crew were gone. Maybe, Tomm, ex-writer, ex-webmaster, ex-radio host, is still with KFI. But his site, www.looneynews.com/ or whatever, is gone. Try www.xtrasports1150.com/tommlooney.htm. Did he have his voice changed or what? He didn't sound that way when he was on KLSX a few years ago.
12/23.3/02 - KNX Drama Hour, daily, 9-10p, KNX 1070 AM.
12/23.2/02 - Larry King, Mon-Fri, 8-9p, KFWB 980 AM.
12/23.1/02 - "ROLLY & WELLS: Public Radio Bracing for a Zap Attack ...But under Federal Communications Commission regulations, noncommercial stations can bump those with weaker signals [NPR] off the dial.
According to a Sept. 15 story in The New York Times, a mushrooming network of Christian radio stations is deliberately targeting NPR stations because its leaders loathe their "liberal" content." More at www.sltrib.com/2002/Dec/12182002/utah/12421.asp. Larry's tip.
12/23/02 - Hi-tech stuff in Robert Gonsett's newsletter at www.bext.com/_CGC/, #554, dated 12/23/02.
12/22.6/02 - "...Disney Radio KDIS/710 AM and ESPN Radio KSPN/1110 AM are swapping frequencies Jan. 1." Gary Lycan, below, reminds us. Several dates have been suggested for this switch, so don't get upset if the date switches again. Actually, I do tune to KDIS 710 AM sometimes for the kiddie tunes, like Sunday morning 7-8a, but don't tell anyone. But, I don't have either station on a preset.
12/22.5/02 - New show today, 4-7p, KFI 640 AM, something called the "J and J Show," or whatever. It's new today, and they didn't say anything about content, but about every host today has mentioned it.
12/22.4/02 - KNX Drama Hour, daily, 9-10p, KNX 1070 AM.
12/22.4/02 - FYI - "Weather radios available for rural residents. Citizens need to register by Feb. 7 for $11 cut rate. Even though they can't be wrapped and placed under the tree, weather radios make great Christmas presents, according to one county official. The radios also have features designed for non-weather related emergencies, such as Amber Alert, to keep children safe. Rural Jefferson County residents are eligible for one weather radio per household at a discounted price of $11." Why can't I get one for $11? More at www.zwire.com/site/news.cfm?newsid=6461072&BRD=1139&PAG=461&dept_id=142642&rfi=6. Moreover.com/'s tip.
12/22.3/02 - "Why talk radio runs to the right. The conservative dominance of talk radio isn't a given. Progressive voices can find their audience if the formula is right.; Why. "All Democrats are fat, lazy, and stupid," the talk-show host said in grave, serious tones as if he were uttering a sacred truth." More at www.dfw.com/mld/startelegram/news/editorial/4795181.htm. Larry's tip. Rather long, but you can skip directly to "First, a very brief history:," a brief history of talk radio, which I haven't heard before.
12/22.2/02 - "Bush's Radio Address Has a Holiday Theme.
In his weekly radio address, President Bush asked Americans to help the poor and to keep U.S. troops in their thoughts. Then he left for a Christmas break at the Camp David compound in Maryland and his Texas ranch.
"Our country is prosperous, yet we must also remember there are pockets of despair in America," Bush said.
Bush also sent holiday greetings to U.S. troops."
12/22.1/02 - L.A. Times radio tips for today cover almost two, long columns. Again, in the paper only, not their web site, the tips are on pages E66 and E67 in the Calendar section, and nothing indexes to them. There are a few holiday tips and at least one mistakes, but most of them must be correct. One, "Rock & Roll Christmas Music," 10-11p, KCBS 93.1 FM, with comments from rock people, almost sounds interesting.
12/22/02 - Gary Lycan's stuff in the OCR:
12/21.9/02 - KMXN 94.3 FM, the bb's say, will be sold and change format. Site at www.cool943.net/. The sc groove bb has "Don Barrett headline tonight! Art Astor is selling Cool to Lieberman. Lieberman owns the 94.3 in the Valley and will simulcast. Don said an LMA will probably take effect in 2 weeks."
12/21.8/02 - "I'd Rather Eat Pants," the new, five part NPR comedy/play, finished Friday. Are five eight-minute segments better than one 40-minute play? With people so accustomed to commercial interruptions, maybe so. Anyway, I'd rate it as ok but nothing special, and they say you can hear it at NPR's site at www.npr.org, or go directly to www.npr.org/programs/morning/features/2002/dec/eatpants/index.html. Who was that doing the knock-knock joke?
12/21.7/02 - RadioDailyNews by Larry Shannon has revised it's front page at www.radiodailynews.com/. Many item have been moved to other pages, like most news links are at www.radiodailynews.com/index2.htm#Search%20Sites, where I'm linked. But, I do wish he'd return to short-format headlines (one line); those long, multiple lines provide too much info for me to quickly find stuff. And, I read yesterday's headlines, tell me what's new for today? Also, I don't 'get' the two groups of headlines; it slows me down. But I can't blame Larry for headlines, even newspapers today print poor headlines with no content clues. The headlines should be checked daily, since most days I only have time for a quick scan.
12/21.6/02 - FYI - "Voice of America Seeks Lower Profile. WASHINGTON – Voice of America is now distancing itself from its own broadcast operations in the Middle East and their teeny-bopper formats on Radio SAWA and Radio FARDA.

12/21.1/02 - "Mother of 'Dr. Laura' Found Dead. The body of radio host's estranged parent was in her Beverly Hills condo for up to two months. Police are investigating case as a homicide." Locally, she's on KFI, Mon-Fri, noon-3p, but other hosts like John and Ken and Bill Handel will be gone next week. (Check for repeats? Melinda Lee fills for Bill 12/25 5-9a.)

12/21/02 - "Jingle Ball has the hits, but not the fire. The annual KIIS-FM Jingle Ball concert treated pop fans to some of 2002's bigger hit-makers on Thursday at the Arrowhead Pond. Yet the assortment of divas, crooners and sassy teens amounted to little more than a few trinkets (and a lump of coal or two) wrapped up in a giant, flashy package topped with cascades of glittery fake snow." But, did you enjoy the concert? More at www.calendarlive.com/music/cl-et-nichols21dec21.story.

However, he does need a method to index the archives and provide easier access to the archives.

12/12.7/02 - "Latest Los Angeles Phase II Arbitrends don't show quick rebounds for Spanish radio. Though Liberman's "Que Buena" simulcast has probably its best monthly ever. Other Spanish operators in L.A. are still steaming over the Summer book." Says www.insideradio.com/.

12/12.4/02 - LA Weekly's program picks on their site today are dated "December 6 - 12, 2002," but they look like the tips for next week.
12/12.3/02 - LA Weekly's program picks for today:
12/12.2/02 - "Pacifica Foundation Governing Board Unanimously Passes Resolution On FCC Media Ownership Proposals.

More at www.sportsnetwork.com/default.asp?c=sportsnetwork&page=soc-mls/news/AHN2353936.htm. Moreover.com/'s tip. Don't expect sports news on this site. Have they changed their call letters? Anyway, 1230 AM has a site at www.radiokorea.com/. The navigation bars are in English, but most of the text is in Korean, strange.
12/12/02 - Headlines at www.laradio.com/:
12/11.15/02 - Larry King change:
12/11.14/02 - FYI - "Community radio a basic right: Anand.

More at www.nationmultimedia.com/page.news.php3?clid=3&id=5759&usrsess=1. How much community radio does L.A. have? P.S. - That's from the rather slow web site for a newspaper in Thailand. Moreover.com/'s tip.
12/11.13/02 - "Dr. Dog has both bark and bite. Sometimes, talk radio sounds like a zoo. Turn to almost any AM station and you'll hear snakes, weasels, foxes and a few dodo birds who should have gone extinct years ago. But only one local show is actually about our four-legged friends." More in Randy Dotinga's Thursday column at www.nctimes.com/preview/radio.html, two days early.
12/11.12/02 - Is KLAC 570 AM streaming? I don't stream, but try www.570klac.com/jacor-common/streaming_disclaimer.html. Their new site is up at www.570klac.com/main.html.
12/11.11/02 - Phil Hendrie's show live. A question came up on a bb about when Phil's show is live. His site says "4 to 7 pm pacific," that's L.A. time. KFI plays the show from 7-10p, on delay. Phil's site is www.philhendrieshow.com/, and it looks like it streams. There's also a list of affiliates and who plays the show live. Did I mention I don't care for the show?
12/11.10/02 - Air checks for sale. This was posted on a couple of bb: www.davesairchecks.com/. It also links to his "Top 100 Audio Websites!" Some other air-check sites are linked on C&C.

Talk and news are generally down, only two are steady, except KRLA is slightly up. Classical KMZT is steady, and newish standards KSUR is slightly down. But, these are only a month's worth of changes.
12/11.8/02 - Another talk-radio site. Here's another site with talk-show links: vgi2.tripod.com/, streaming? From the ctcr bb.
12/11.7/02 - "Infamous stunts have taken some of the juice out of shock radio. Will 2002 go down as the year shock radio short-circuited? Consider two high-profile cases that cost three disc jockeys their livelihoods..." More at www.post-gazette.com/ae/20021211shock1211fnp2.asp. Tip from the NYr bb.
12/11.6/02 - "SBS Stresses It Will Close On KXOL/L.A. That's despite the fact that negotiations are still ongoing between SBS and seller International Foursquare Church on the $250 million deal. SBS CFO Joseph Garcia says that one possibility is a swap of SBS's class A L.A. stations..." More at www.radioandrecords.com/.
12/11.5/02 - "Powerful Trend In L.A. Emmis CHR/Rhythmic KPWR is once again No. 1 in Los Angeles, posting a 5.2-5.4 gain in the fall 2002 Phase Two Arbitrends.

12/11/02 - "FOR THE RECORD. Radio station -- A article about KRTH-FM in Friday's Calendar mistakenly said the old pop station KHJ-AM was at frequency 980 on the dial. It was at 930." The L.A. Times prints lots of corrections like this from http://www.latimes.com/news/printedition/asection/la-a2-correx11.13dec11.story, but I don't usually report them.
12/10.11/02 - FYI - The headline: "City asks radio station to pay sewer fees." Not worth reading at news.mywebpal.com/partners/870/public/news404544.html. Moreover.com's tip.
12/10.10/02 - "New FCC commissioner wants more review of media ownership limitations. WASHINGTON (AP) - The newest addition to the Federal Communications Commission said Tuesday he would welcome more public hearings on the government's review of rules limiting ownership of newspapers and radio and television stations."

12/10.8/02 - The old KLAC site seems to be dead. www.570klac.com/ just brings up their logo. A link to their old schedule page finds nothing. The bb's reported www.570klac.com/fabulous570/ could be the new site, but who knows. The switch from talk to music is scheduled for noon Thursday, 12/12/02 (after Michael Jackson's show - will he get to do his 9a-noon show?). Gary Lycan suggests the new site could be www.fabulous570.com, but that hasn't worked for me.
12/10.7/02 - "XM/DELPHI INTRODUCE NEW PORTABLE SATELLITE RADIO ..Car..Home..and now, the Beach. The world's first satellite boom box has hit the street, and will be available at your local Circuit City next week. The new SKYFi Audio System..." More at www.newradiostar.com/.

12/9.10/02 - SteveBlodgett.com becomes EarthSignals.com. SteveBlodgett.com had L.A. radio-station info but EarthSignals.com, while full of shortwave stuff, doesn't. I may have to remove it from near the top of the C&C listing. The site is now at www.earthsignals.com/, and the web cams are still available.
12/9.9/02 - "98.7-FM's Not So Silent Night. Another in the growing ranks of radio station-sponsored Christmas shows, Star 98.7's eclectic contribution..." is sold out. More at events.calendarlive.com/top/1,1419,L-LATimes-Search-X!EventDetail-63789,00.html.

The wsradio site is at www.wsradio.com/, and double click to back out. Sally's site is described at 18.104.22.168/cart/ProductList.asp?SearchFor=Sally+Cravens+&x=38&y=10.
12/9.6/02 - "JILL STEWART: RADIO TALK-SHOW HOST. Former LAT/New Times writer Jill Stewart was the host on KFI tonight, and she was really good. 12/08/2002 02:11:23 AM Comment (5)" Says www.laexaminer.com/, a must-read site, with hot links. I heard her but didn't think about who she was.

12/8/02 - Gary Lycan's radio stuff:
12/7.7/02 - Cave Bat's favorites list. I found a link to my mirrored site at www.cavebat.com/links.html, under "Talk, News." See if you can use any of his probably strange links.
12/7.6/02 - "LETTERS - Blame KLAC."
12/7.5/02 - NORAD tracks Santa at www.noradsanta.org/, in six languages, with music and history, etc. This was on the ctcr bb.
12/7.4/02 - KNX Drama Hour, daily, 9-10p, KNX 1070 AM. Do leave time in your week for Comedy, and the kids can listen also. Or, tape it for the younger kids already in bed or for your drive to work.
12/7.3/02 - LA Weekly's program picks for today:
12/7.2/02 - Gary Lycan's Friday radio calendar (program listing) seems to have become an almost weekly feature, in addition to his usually Sunday program listing. Yesterday's is at www2.ocregister.com/ocrweb/ocr/article.do?id=14730§ion=SHOW&year=2002&month=12&day=6. It's long and detailed, like 15 pages. I'm confused, but I think he starts with Saturday, then Sunday, followed by weekday shows.
12/7.1/02 - "Signs you're a radiogeek: 2002 Edition." Stuff and comments under radio-info.com/boards/ctc/index.cgi?read=16568 from "The Golden State Radio Guide by Timothy Fangthe" at www.radio-info.com/goldenstate/.
12/7/02 - Bob Steele, long-time radio host, reported nice guy, died yesterday. I almost mentioned it, but I didn't recall actually hearing him. There are comments on the NYr bb under musicradio.computer.net/wwwboard/messages/185885.html. Also, Larry links to a story at www.newsday.com/news/local/wire/ny-bc-ct--obit-steele1206dec06,0,4639355.story?coll=ny-ap-regional-wire, and I have seen it elsewhere.
12/6.15/02 - Michael Jackson, the talk-radio guy. No hints yet on where he could land, if anywhere, when KLAC goes talk on 12/12, a sad day for L.A. talk radio. Not that they've done much with the KLAC talk format. Just to say you have heard him, you can get his schedule for new and repeat shows at www.570klac.com/onairschedule.html. He does tip to the left, which is not as popular today, but I'll listen to him since he'll listen to everyone else. And, he a gentleman about it; not many left today. I do hope he lands on the air somewhere. P.S. - my current schedule keeps me from hearing him live, so don't expect announcements from me. I can't find a web site for Michael Jackson, but if you find one please post it on my message board, so we can keep in touch.
12/6.14/02 - Music Radio. You may already know I don't usually report on music radio, but here are a couple:
12/6.13/02 - Lawyer scam. John and Ken are doing their show live at the Trevor Law office to expose this 'mistake' in the law and how it is hurting small businesses. The show is 3-7p, KFI 640 AM. See details, map, etc on their site at www.johnandkenshow.com/.

12/6/02 - "Pacifica seeks to save its historical recordings. Founded two years after the commencement of the Cold War by World War II conscientious objector Lew Hill, Pacifica Radio in North Hollywood has since amassed a remarkable audio record of American political and cultural history..." This topic was in the news weeks ago, but this may contain new info. More at u.dailynews.com/Stories/0,1413,211%257E23540%257E1032069,00.html?search=filter.

And, "Among the sites that users had trouble reaching in the test period were those of National Public Radio, the Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post and Time magazine." More at www.iht.com/articles/79128.html. Moreover.com's tip. I do have hits from several Asian countries, but I don't recall one from (the old mainland) China. This current hit counter on MENU is very poor at indicating the associated country.
12/5.2/02 - "NPR's 1st Black female host reflects a shift in the network's philosophy. Former newspaper reporter and TV correspondent Michele Norris...National Public Radio's "All Things Considered," for which she had just been hired to co-host." More at long URL. Larry's tip.

12/4.16/02 - Universal Talk Network. ***Caution*** - one of these links crashed me twice. Concerning the 12/4.10/02 Flash, Google found a few links under their old name like www.unitedtalknetwork.com/ and www.amatteroftaste.com/radio_show.html. But, those may have to change along with the name change.
12/4.15/02 - "Cities with the largest number of all Christmas stations," and comments at radio-info.com/boards/ctc/index.cgi?read=16430, the ctcr bb. But, is a high number good or bad?

Detailed report at media.radcity.net/ZMST/RadioTrends2002.pdf, in Adobe which I hate, and it never seems to work correctly. But, who's Joyner? What's Stern? P.S. - this could be a joke since Joyner isn't even on "Talkers" top 25 list. Check Joyner out at www.tomjoyner.com/ where it looks like they stream.
12/4.8/02 - Matt Drudge and Bill O'Reilly. Sunday night on his radio show Matt mentioned there would be big news about Bill O'Reilly that could hurt Bill, his show, or whatever. I haven't heard anything yet.
