Part of the experience of growing up in LA is listening to LA radio. Power 106, Pirate Radio, KROQ, KDAY, KIIS -- so many fun and fond memories of cruising along to a soundtrack of favorite songs. Totally not mash.
But... Listening to boring AM talk radio in your Republican dad's car on the way to school in the morning? Super, duper mash. A friend recently reminded me of the AM radio jingles of my childhood and I can still hear them now.
"All you need to know... KNX 1070 News Radio"
Listen: KNX Mash Medley
"KFWB News 98. You give us 22 minutes, we'll give you the world."
Listen: KFWB jingles from the '50s
"KFI in the Sky"
Listen: KFI shudders
And lastly, someone has taken the important step of creating a medley of SoCal radio jingles on YouTube.
