Acknowledgements

I welcome any comments or suggestions for this board. Any contributions of similar L.A. radio trivia (i.e. playlists, DJs, air dates) would be greatly appreciated, and I'll try to add them in the future.

DAVE'S WISH LIST

I'm looking for any information on KPOL, and also the following stations: KBCA, KFAC, KFWB (pre-1968), KLAC-FM, KGFJ, KDAY, KUTE 102, KXLA, KALI (pre-'66), and KPPC (the original underground).

E-mail me at admin@socalradiohistory.com and I'll post your contributions as soon as I can. ALSO: If a station goes off the air, please let me know. I travel quite a bit and am not always in the Los Angeles area these days.


The Sound Booth   has numerous .WAV files and Real Audio clips!
