There are a number of radio stations broadcasting in the LA area. However, the variety of radio stations perhaps doesn’t have the diversity as compared to other major cities. Also note that additional stations can be picked up if you have a HD Radio.
Historical note: Have you noticed all those antennas on Mt Wilson? LA Radio pioneer Saul Levin is long time pioneering radio mogul who has lived in Los Angeles for many years. He started his original FM radio station in 1959 as KBCA (now KKGO) by placing broadcast equipment on top of a flag pole high on the slopes of Mt. Wilson overlooking the entire Los Angeles Basin. Today he is a breath of fresh air in the Los Angeles corporate dominated radio market – still maintaining his independently owned radio stations.

Note: Some Los Angeles area based radio stations change format, position on the dial or their name faster than it takes a jet to fly from LA to SF. We make our best effort to keep this page updated: email corrections or updates to firstname.lastname@example.org
