This '50s/'60s oldies format launched yesterday (March 11) on KKGO-FM HD2. For those of us who don't have HD Radios (myself included), this is simulcast on KBOQ-AM 1260 on weekends (from 5:00 PM Friday to 9:00 AM Monday). It's also streamed online 24/7 at http://www.laoldies.com/. I'm streaming it on my iPhone as I'm posting this message.
As most Angelenos on here may remember, this isn't the first time that music from the '50s and '60s has been heard on the 1260 AM frequency in L.A. Some here may recall that as KGIL, using the "Retro 1260" moniker, the station played a mix of standards and oldies; and for a time under that moniker they had oldies weekends. And from August 2004 to June 2005, they were all oldies every day, with the call letters KSUR. At that time, they simulcasted on Tijuana-licensed XESURF-AM 540, by which time they were "Oldies 540 and 1260," later listing the higher frequency before the lower frequency in their moniker. The Tijuana station still has the XESURF call sign as a Spanish-language Christian station.
I invite those of you who enjoy this kind of music, regardless of your age, to check it out any way you can.
