Retro Radio Replays

Radio out of LA is alot more to my taste than the radio stations out of Tucson. Primarily because its music is more familiar. LA has a few stations that have not evolved since the 1980s. In contrast to Tucson where alot of stations strive to be current, "hip" and "alternative" with the result that they all sound the same. That is to say they all sound bad in the same way. KLOS which was a dinosaur rock station in the 1980s is still around and still playing the same playlist. Which is fine with me because Sabbath, Led Zepplin and AC/DC will never go out of style. I found another great station that calls itself "Jack" at 93.1 FM which seems to play almost all 80s music with a few songs from the 70s and 90s. It also has no stupid news, traffic reports or other chatter by brain dead announcers. Even the DJs behave themselves and just play music with their mouths shut. This is as God intended radio.

I grew up in LA and KLOS was my favorite station. Happy to hear they are keeping it up. Imagine that, disk jockys who don't talk over songs!

KLOS does not sound any different today than it did in 1986.
