For 25 years, LARadio has tracked thousands of personalities who have entertained
us in the Southland from 1957-present. These pages were never meant to be a life-time resume/bio but rather a snapshot of each on-air personality –
where they came from, where and when they worked in Southern California,
and where they are now.

And the best news of all is that senior LARadio correspondent Alan Oda is writing a weekly blog, mostly about radio

Alan has had his own love affair with radio and you’ll get a unique perspective every week on his view of radio.

Ladies of LARP Calendar in 2007

Early LARadio was dominated by men. In the 70s women began to find an important place - on and off-air - in creating the rich history of LARadio. In 2007, we saluted the women in LARadio with a calendar that included the names of the LARP who were having birthdays that month. Calendar was sponsored by Mt. Wilson Broadcasting. You can access it at this link.

“I'm delighted to be included with such a distinguished list of LARadio women, but it's my husband who's tickled by the fact that he's married to a calendar girl. The calendar is being prominently displayed at his offices, where all can see it.” – Sandy Kelley
