Retro 1260 AM Goes Even More Retro

One of my favorite Los Angeles radio stations is no more. Retro 1260AM changed into K-Mozart yesterday. What’s going on? I set the wayback machine for 1956, not 1756! Yes, the fugues and sonatas are lovely, but I can spin the dial all the way around these days without hearing a big band or an a cappella singer or even Mr. Sinatra. Yes, it was hard to tune in weak lil’ 1260, but while KRTH’s definition of “classics” is heavy on Hall & Oates and the The Dazz Band, I’ll be sure to keep my music dial pointed in the direction of Art Laboe, who at least still plays Angel Baby once in a while over on 92.3
