When my MySpace blogs vanished into cyberspace, I was particularly sorry to lose my guides to Los Angeles radio stations.  I can't find anything like them online so I keep them for every time I need or want to re-program my car radio.  Since others may also find such information helpful, I'm posting my guide to AM stations below.  My guide to FM stations will come later:

570—KLAC, sports talk, mostly Fox Sports.  Dodgers, football, and Petros Papadakis.  Phone may be 1-866-967-2970 (local) or 1-877-99-ON-FOX (national). 
Web site: or phone (818) 559-2252 for business.

640—KFI, mostly right-wing nutcase talk so I prefer to avoid it.

710--KSPN, ESPN Radio in Los Angeles (although other sports stations often have ESPN programming, too).  Sometimes has baseball or football not available on other stations.  Web site:

790—KABC, mostly right-wing nutcase talk but sometimes has sports programming.  Web site:

830—KLAA, sports talk and Angels, owned by Arte Moreno.  Web site:
On-air phone:  1-877-883-0830.

980—KFWB, “News Talk,” and is the Web site.  Used to be “all news,” now the news is only between 5-9 and 4-7 weekdays.

1070—KNX, and its slogan is “all news, all the time.”

1110—KDSN (“Radio Disney”) if you like Disney’s stable of music artists.

1150—KTLK, was Air America in the Bush II era, now Stephanie Miller in the morning and Randi Rhodes in the afternoon are the only true left-wing talk show hosts (hostesses) left.  David Cruz does a local-news-and-commentary talk show in the afternoon, and sometimes you can find Johnny Wendell in a morning or weekend slot.  Web site:
Phones:  (818) 566-6476 (programming) and (818) 559-2252 (main).
