One of the best things about LA, other than the weather and the food, is the radio stations. To begin with, there are tons of them. I'd say there's one station for every 0.4 frequency on the FM dial. I'd also say that at least a quarter of them are Spanish. But aside from sheer quantity of radio stations, a lot of them are really good. I probably listen to KPCC (out of Pasadena) the most since it has NPR news and Cartalk. For music, I sometimes listen to KCRW (out of Santa Monica), although Nic Harcourt and his Becomes Eclectic programs can get boring after a while.
What really blew me away the other day was a long mix of Prince classics on KBIG. I couldn't believe my ears. It was all Prince for at least a half hour. Everything from Controversy to Raspberry Beret to 7. A Prince compilation on the radio! Who does that? Which reminds me, his Purple Highness released an album recently. I don't know if it's any good, but I assume he'll be going on tour soon. If he plays his old stuff, then I'm definitely there.
