Scanning the Radio Dial: Chinese Radio in L.A. and College Radio in Ithaca

It’s a good sign that people continue to write articles praising radio offerings from coast-to-coast; so I just wanted to take a moment to share a couple of stories about some interesting things happening in various radio markets.

A piece in the L.A. Times profiles AM station KAZN in Pasadena, California, which was the first 24-hour Chinese language station in the country. According to the article:

“…KAZN remains the dominant voice in the Chinese community in L.A. and serves as a clearinghouse for all sorts of general information. On the weekends, one can hear Bible stories, Buddhist sermons, family counseling, celebrity interviews and lectures on immigration law.”

All the way across the country in Ithaca, New York, a college student writes a love letter for FM radio, explaining how much the stations rule compared with similar offerings in other parts of New York. Justine Fields writes in the Cornell Daily Sun:

“Since these stations have filled my VW beetle with so much musical pleasantry, I thought I’d take this column to touch the surface in dissecting the magnificent state of Ithaca’s rock and pop music frequencies.”

Justine’s top choice? College radio station WICB (Ithaca College).
