WHAT: Harry Shearer, whose long-running Le Show was abruptly axed from KCRW’s Sunday morning lineup in April, will soon return to the Los Angeles airwaves. That’s according to a Tweet he posted last week: “2 1/2 months off the air in Los Angeles will end imminently.”
VERDICT: This can only be a good thing. L.A. needs his sense of humor, his irascible perspective, and his trenchant critiques of feckless politicians. We only want to know… Where?! When?!
UPDATE: And now we know where: KCSN (FM 88.5). The radio station of Cal State Northridge, it has seen an infusion of life in the last year, bringing in another former KCRW on-air personality, Nick Harcourt, to host its weekday morning show.
